Apparent homicide victim was a military wife

Posted: Updated:

KUAM got tipped by a viewer from the southern village of Agat who sent us pictures and messages through social media wondering what police were investigating. Turns out the Guam Police Department has launched a homicide investigation after a 54-year-old Russian female is found dead in an Agat home Sunday night. Joint Region Marainas public information officer Lt. Tim Gorman tells KUAM the victim is a spouse of a service member and died at an off-base residence. He adds that Guam Police Department is conducting the investigation and the Navy is cooperating with GPD in the matter.   

GPD spokesperson AJ Balajadia says the call was received just after 8:30 Sunday night as a possible suicide.

According to chief medical examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola who conducted an autopsy on the body Monday afternoon, the woman died from a close range gunshot to the face.

KUAM meanwhile spoke with an official in the mayor's office who told us the residents are fairly new to the village.

If you have any information please call Guam Crime Stoppers at 477-HELP (4357).

    Adelup wants public hearing for hospital bills

    Two pieces of proposed legislation that aren't on the next session agenda are Bills 141 and 142. The administration is making yet another attempt to get lawmakers to have those measures go up for a public hearing. Governor Calvo submitted both five months ago:  One to authorize a $125 million bond for GMH improvements, the other would raise the business privilege tax from 4% to 4.75% to service the bond debt and fund GMH's chronic budget shortfall.
