Tonga Police were investigating how Kevini Maka ended up dead in a waterway in Popua last week.
Police have treated the death as suspicious after the body of the 22-year-old was pulled from the newly constructed waterway at 12.45pm Monday 5.
Acting Police Supt Tevita Vailea reportedly said they had enough information to launch the investigation while Police were still awaiting an autopsy report.
The post-modem was completed on Friday but the deceased’s body was still at hospital. No arrests had been made.
As Kaniva News reported, Maka was a resident of Pātangata a village situated next to Popua.
The deceased’s friends and relatives were shocked by the news of his death.
