A homicide investigation has begun after two bodies were found in a bush allotment in Lakepa.

Police said the bodies of the Chinese couple in their early 50s were found with stab wounds to their heads and necks, Sunday afternoon.

As Kaniva News reported yesterday, the couple’s vehicle was missing.

Police were looking for a silver Toyota Sparky 2000, registration plate L16768 “as of interest to their homicide investigation,” a statement said.

Police are appealing for anyone who have any information about this alleged homicide to come forward or contact Police Emergency 922, 23417 or the nearest Police station to you.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
