Skeletal remains found near Makapuu are identified


The Medical Examiner’s office said the skeletal human remains found between the Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and the shoreline two months ago were those of a man reported missing in January.

Edward Ghang Jr. was last heard from on Jan. 16, when he spoke to a friend on the phone.

A CrimeStoppers bulletin issued in January said Ghang was emotionally distraught and may have been in the Kapahulu area.

The cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head. The death was classified as a suicide.

Four hikers descending from the Makapuu Lighthouse trail discovered the skeletal remains near a cave along the cliff Sept. 15.
