An Australian mother-of-three has been killed in Fiji and her Australian husband is in hospital, according to reports.
She was reportedly found dead in her home and her husband is in hospital.
FBC says that the woman is mother-of-three Jennifer Downes, who worked for the United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) in Suva, and her husband is Henry Lusaka John.
Mr John, who is originally from Congo but is an Australian citizen, is at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital, according to the Fiji Sun.
A police spokeswoman told the Fiji Sun they were treating the case an alleged murder.
An Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesman said consular assistance was being provided to the family of the Australian woman.
“Owing to our privacy obligations we will not provide further comment,” he said.
In a 2018 interview with the WFP, Ms Downes – who was known professionally as Jenna Lusaka – said she “lived and breathed” her job and loved the fact she was “constantly learning”.
“I’ve worked in humanitarian logistics in both Vanuatu and Australia, while also giving birth to my three beautiful children,” she said in the interview.
“Being a mum to three kids under four has only enhanced my logistics capacities.”
