Young mum of two allegedly takes own life

The death of a mother of two at Nuku’alofa’s  ‘Ananā suburb was allegedly self- inflicted, reports said.

Veisinia Tofa Brown

Veisinia Tofa Brown of ‘Ananā had two children with her husband Siaosi Brown, Tongan media reported this week.

The eldest child is four years old, the report said.

Police had been dealing with the tragedy but no further details available at this stage.

Police could not be reached for comment.

The news comes after a man’s body was allegedly found hanging from a casuarina tree at Pātangata last month.

Sione Hoko was found dead in the tree according to a source close to him.

That grim discovery was made by some local children before police were called to the scene.

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