Fiji police find another body on beach

1:00 pm on 5 July 2016

Police have discovered the remains of another decomposed body at the Natadola beach today.

Chief of Intelligence and Investigations ACP Luke Navela said the discovery was made by a man who came across the remains while he was walking along the beach.

The decomposed parts were wrapped in a similar manner to the remains found last week at the same location.

ACP Navela said the remains would be kept at the Lautoka Hospital, where forensic tests would be carried out.

The previously discovered remains belonged to a Russian couple who had been reported missing in mid-June.

The police were treating that case as murder after confirming the remains found on Natadola beach belong to Yuri Shipulin and his wife Natalia.
