Nuku’alofa: A mur­der sus­pect in Tonga con­tin­ues to evade Po­lice on the high seas, af­ter he es­caped from a Po­lice sta­tion in Vava’u on Thurs­day. Dean Jay Fletcher, 54, a United States cit­i­zen, faces a charge of mur­der fol­low­ing the death of his wife while their yacht, Sea Oak, was an­chored in Vava’u. But Mr Fletcher es­caped from a lo­cal Po­lice sta­tion in the early hours of Thurs­day morn­ing and sailed away on his yacht.

Po­lice of­fi­cers man­aged to track him down about 16 kilo­me­tres North­west of Vava’u, but the pur­suit was called off when Mr Fletcher fired flares at their boat. Source: RNZI
