Police find car belonging to dead Hilo woman

Hawaii County police have found the car belonging to a 48-year-old Hilo woman whose body was found in Hilo on Saturday night.

The body of Jodi Masutomi was found  by a fisherman along the shoreline of Hawaii Belt Road in Wainaku. She was identified through fingerprints, police said.

Her tan 1997 four-door Toyota Camry was found in Honomu early Wednesday morning. Police thanked the public for their help.

An autopsy conducted Tuesday showed Masutomi’s injuries were consistent with a fall from a height, police said. The cause of death, however, is being deferred until a toxicology report is done.
