Who was Uati Pele Faletolu?

Uati ‘Pele’ Faletolu died during his shift on the Show on April 11, after he was allegedly embroiled in a fight between gang members from warring western Sydney postcodes.

Her mother, Janice, told mourners at Hillsong Church on Friday morning that her son was “stabbed in the heart.”

“I wish everyone who was there would put down their phones and help my son,” she said through tears.

His youngest son, Mase, 15, squeezed his mother’s shoulder and turned her head away from the crowd.

“Perhaps he would still be here,” Mrs. Faletolu said.

Investigation

Uati’s killer is still at large. Frustrated police blame “misguided loyalty” for unwilling witnesses to help investigators.

Uati ‘Pele’ Faletolu died during his shift at the Sydney Royal Easter Show on April 11, after he was allegedly embroiled in a fight between gang members from warring western Sydney postcodes.

On Friday, hundreds of grieving family and friends, including Uati’s pregnant girlfriend, Taylor Piliae, descended on Hillsong Church in Baulkham Hills for their final farewell.

Hundreds of mourners joined Uati’s family and pregnant girlfriend, Taylor Piliae, for the emotionally charged farewell.

Many wore matching black shirts and hoodies with a picture of Uati smiling and the words ‘forever 17’ emblazoned across the back.

The church was so packed that many mourners had to watch the service from outside. Others huddled on the top floor and sat in the stairwell to watch the proceedings.

Uati’s mother

Uati’s mother  said her son was the ‘man of the house’ and ‘took his role very seriously’ during her moving eulogy criticizing witnesses to his death for not hanging up their phones.

The teenagers tried their best to remain stoic, but tears rolled down her cheeks as Mrs. Faletolu continued to pay tribute to her son, supported by her three surviving children.

The packed church was silent except for the occasional cold. The little boys, many of whom looked no older than Uati, kept their heads down during his eulogy.

Mrs. Faletolu told the story of the short life of her son, who was taken from her just a few months before he became a father.

The family moved to Australia in 2017, and by this time, Uati was already the man of the house.

“He took the role very seriously,” Ms. Faletolu noted. His father died in 2005, the same year Uati was born, and even as a child he felt a great sense of responsibility towards his family.

Family

Mrs. Piliae shared the same story as Uati’s mother, how he was determined to use his Easter Show payment package to start preparations for his baby.

Uati dreamed of becoming an NRL player, and for a time his family had high hopes that he would actually make it. He had the talent. But it didn’t happen and after he left school in 2021, he told his mother that he wanted to go back and get HSC from him. He had a new goal. He was going to become a teacher.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Ms. Faletolu told the crowd. Many laughed along with her. ‘Wati, a teacher? After causing his own teachers so much pain?

She was so proud. But Uati had to prove himself to even return to the classroom. Most of the teachers didn’t want him there a second time.

Within three weeks of returning to school, life threw another wrench in the works.

Taylor, Uati’s girlfriend, was pregnant.

“She was so disappointed,” Ms. Faletolu confessed. She was so young. But now I know it was a blessing in disguise.

Charged

A 15-year-old boy arrested at the scene was still being questioned by police and was granted bail. attended the funeral

A 15-year-old boy was charged with fracas and carrying a knife Tuesday, but his charges are not related to the fatal stabbing. He was released on conditional bail and was present at the funeral.

The court heard that the teenager allegedly drew a knife and chased three unknown men after learning that Uati had been stabbed.

NSW Police do not believe he was responsible for the fatal hit and are still searching for those responsible.

While the fight was captured on video, the person who allegedly stabbed Uati has not been identified on available security video.

CCTV footage

The CCTV footage that police have reviewed is too grainy and dark to make a positive identification.

Police have asked for witnesses to come forward and provide more video footage as evidence.

The adult section of the Easter Show was closed to the public while the investigation into Uati’s death was launched.

Uati’s younger brother was allegedly seen in viral footage sitting on the ground in handcuffs after the melee.

Detectives told the Daily Mail Australia that they are aware of mobile phone footage as a “significant number of minors” were seen filming the event.

The head of the homicide squad, Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty, said they may not be cooperating “due to mistaken loyalties or fear of retaliation.”

“From the vision that we have already reviewed, we know that there were a significant number of people filming the incident, many of whom have not yet provided the vision to police,” he said.

“In our experience, it is likely that someone, or many people, have unknowingly captured a clear picture of something relevant to the investigation.”
