The Samoan government has named her as Sa'u Justine Sa'u, the chief executive of the Unit Trust of Samoa.

She held the position since 2011.

Our correspondent in Samoa reported a man was being questioned by police in connection with the death.

The government said Fainuulelei James Ah Wai had been appointed as the Unit Trust's acting chief executive.

The board and management of the Unit Trust said in a statement they were "deeply sad to confirm the untimely passing" of Sa'u.
