Inquest confirms Muller drowned,  no suspicious circumstances

An inquest found the death of  24-year-old Haini Muller of Fatai  was due to drowning in Hufangalupe beach, after he fell off cliff on November 26.

The inquest took place on December 4 before the deceased’s body was released to his family, Telesia Adams, Police Communication and Media Officer said today.

It is not yet known how Muller fell off the cliff but the inquest ruled there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death

The finding contradicted earlier reports on social media that Muller’s death was a suicide.

Muller was reportedly at the beach with his girlfriend and others on the night when the fatal incident happened.

Police attended the scene and a man from Vaini by the name Patelesio  reportedly jumped into the water in an attempt to rescue Muller but were unable to revive him.
