Death investigation underway after apparent stabbing in Dededo

Posted: Jun 16, 2018 12:57 PM Updated:

A local family walked into their car parked along Chalan Koda street in Dededo early Saturday, as they mourn the loss of their loved one. Police responded to the scene around 7 am. GPD Spokesperson Sgt. Paul Tapao could only confirm detectives are conducting a death investigation.

Multiple police units responded and the area has been blocked off for several hours. Though investigators declined to release details at this time, one family member confirmed the victim was her sister, 15. The family member also confirmed she had been stabbed, and that police have yet to make any arrests.

The scene unfolded just up the street from Roger Pollock's home.

"We came by this area to go to the base to do some shopping and we saw all the police cars and several other cars parked and wondering what was going. And probably thought it was a car accident or something like that," Pollock said. "So we went to the base and coming back saw several police cars and more people here so we stopped to find out what was going on. Then we heard there was a stabbing of a young teenage girl."

The unexpected tragedy is part of the reason he said he keeps his home secured.

"It's sad," he said. "Hopefully police will find out why it happened and who did it. The person that committed the crime will pay the penalty."

An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday.
