Big Island police are asking for the public’s help in identifying human remains that were found in Kona last week.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m. Friday, Kona patrol officers responded to a report of human remains found in a vacant lot on the south side of Ololi Street in Kailua-Kona.
Officers found the decomposed body of a man believed to be a Caucasian, between 50 and 60 years old, about 5-foot-3, and 150 pounds.
Police say all of the man’s upper teeth were capped. He was also wearing shorts made of sweatshirt material, water socks, and a jade crucifix hanging from a string around his neck. Found near the body was a dark backpack. The man may have been living on the empty lot.
An autopsy performed Friday determined that he died of natural causes.
Anyone who may know the man’s identity is asked to contact Detective Joshua Lewis at 326-4646, extension 228, or email email@example.com.
