Family and kāinga came together in a ceremony honouring the life of the 22-year-old man from Pātangata who was found dead in a waterway in Popua early this month.
There have been no arrests made after the burial service in Talafoʻou on Friday.
The post-mortem examination on Kevini Maka’s body was completed before it had been released back to his family on Thursday, a Police spokesperson said.
As Kaniva News reported Acting Police Supt Tevita Vailea reportedly said they had enough information to launch the investigation while Police were still awaiting an autopsy report.
No further details were provided about the investigation.
