Fugitive yacht turns up in Pago Pago

From , 4:04 pm on 4 October 2016

The yacht Sea Oak sailed into American Samoa's Pago Pago Harbour this morning Tuesday with a man on board believed to be the fugitive murder suspect Dean Jay Fletcher.

The vessel was last seen fleeing Tongan waters on Sunday after a dramatic five hour stand-off with Tongan police.

Mr Fletcher is wanted after escaping custody following the death of his wife.

Our correspondent in Pago Pago Monica Miller told Sally Round the yacht turned up this morning.
