Medical tests have indicated that the five people whose bodies were found at the Nausori highlands on Monday died after ingesting a substance as yet unrevealed by police.
Police confirm the findings of the post mortem examination yesterday are consistent with an alleged substance ingested by all five victims which resulted in their deaths.
Further tests will now be carried out by the Fiji Police Force to obtain more information.
