The post mortem result for a female passenger found dead on arrival from American Samoa to Samoa last week showed she died from heart failure.

The woman, a Phillipino was in her sixties and lived in American Samoa.

Samoa's assistant police commissioner, Leaupepe Fatu Pula, says negotiations are underway between Samoa and the Embassy of the Philippines in New Zealand for the woman's body to be flown to her home country for burial.
