Kulħadd and Illum carry follow up stories on the murder of Charlene Farrugia, 11 years ago.
Kulħadd reports that the man suspected with the killing of Charlene Farrugia, 11 years ago, tried to provoke a suicide by cop before he was arrested for a separate case in June. The paper says that police officers at the scene acted with caution.
On the other hand, Illum says that weeks before Charlene Farrugia disappeared in 2008, the police found her bruised and hurt in Buġibba. The paper says that her partner John Paul Woods was interrogated but never considered a suspect.
MaltaToday reports that “some time before going missing, Farrugia had been discovered injured in Triq Efesu, Birzebbugia – the same street she lived in – by the police. It resulted that her ex, who has had various brushes with the law related to theft and drugs, had caused her the injuries. Consequently, it was the ex who the police had questioned following the disappearance. Farrugia had refused to press charges against her former partner, and had also been reluctant to go to hospital, but had then had no choice but to be admitted for treatment.”
