Police were still unable to put a name to the tattooed man whose dead body was pulled from the Popua waterway this afternoon.
The deceased has a tattoo of the words Vola Halasiti on his chest, Police said.
They have appealed to the public to help identify the deceased.
Police were called to the scene at around 12:45pm.
“Police ask anyone who has any information that can assist us with our investigation or knows any missing person, to call us immediately at 922, 23417 or to the Police Station closest to you”, says Acting Chief Superintendent Tevita Vailea.
Graphic photos of the deceased have been posted on Facebook and have been widely shared.
“…Police are asking the public to refrain from sharing these photos.
“The dignity of the dead must always be respected.
“By uploading those photos shows absolutely no respect to this victim. The deceased has yet to be identified and the fact of his death has not been known to the family of the victim at this early stage,” Vailea said.
There is no further information available at this stage, Police said.
Police Investigation is underway.
