The wife of slain Police Constable Samuel Pisa is in grieving over the killing of her husband last weekend in Alotau.
As she morns his death, her worry for welfare remains because the couple had not signed marriage certificates.
They were planning to do it on Wednesday of this past week, but Pisa was tragically killed on the weekend prior.
EMTV News last week attended the haus krai of Pisa to meet his young wife and twin sons.
They have been mourning their father’s untimely death for a week now with friends and family.
Constable Pisa and his wife Maisy had been together for six years.
“I am thinking a lot, because our marriage may not be recognised by the government and police,” she said.
Maisy’s main concern is their twin sons, who she will look after since the father has passed away in the line of duty.
She fears that police hierarchy will not recognise their marriage and the benefits to look after the twins may not be forthcoming.
Constable Pisa was shot outside a store in Alotau during a robbery, with the suspects escaping on boats out to sea.
His killing has been condemned from the highest levels with both Milne Bay Governor, Titus Philemon, and Planning Minister, Charles Abel speaking out over the tragedy.
