Police Seek Help Identifying Remains in Kona Park
Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a person whose partially decomposed body was found last Thursday at Higashihara Park in Kona.
Police said the decedent may have been a middle-aged homeless man who frequented the Kainaliu, Kealakekua and Honalo areas.
He was described as Caucasian and between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11 in height. He was wearing blue jeans, no shoes and a blue T-shirt depicting a SpongeBob character and the words “It’s Hip to Be Square.”
Anyone with information as to his identity is asked to call Det. Walter Ah Mow at 326-4646, Ext. 238.
An autopsy has been scheduled for today to determine the cause of death and to help identify the remains.
