Murder suspects to appear in Lorengau court

Manus Provincial Police Commander, Chief Inspector David Yapu, said 24-year-old Popsie Popou Pondrilei and 27-year-old Selan Nick, both from Naringel village, were arrested over the murder of Victor Sapak Nadrasile.

They will appear at the Lorengau Committal Court today.

Both men are employed by a local security contractor, providing security services to China Harbour at Momote Airport.

PPC Yapu said the body of the deceased was discovered on the afternoon of October 7th after he was allegedly murdered and dumped into the lake at Naringel village.

Several suspects identified in hunt for Yap AG's killer

Rachelle Bergeron was shot outside her home last week in what authorities believe was a targetted killing.

In a statement, the Yap state government says investigators, including members of the FBI who were sent to Yap, have completed the initial phase of their investigation.

It says several people of interest have been identified, and it thanked the community for its support.
