Hawaiʻi Police Department is renewing its request for information about an unsolved murder from 2001.

On Jan. 31, 2001, the body of 19-year-old Kallen James Agliam was discovered in the Pepeʻekeo area in South Hilo.

South Hilo Patrol officers responded to a 5:17 p.m. call from a passerby that a body of a male was laying on the shoulder of the roadway of the old Hilo Coast Processing Plant Road. Officers located Agliam’s body and an autopsy later determined that Agliam died from a gunshot wound.

Police are asking that anyone with information regarding this case contact Detective Derek Morimoto of the Area I Criminal Investigation Section at 808-961-2380, or by email at [email protected]
