Medical Examiner: Officer died from blunt force injuries
A roadside memorial at Mililani District Park for Honolulu police officer Chad Morimoto displays a photo taken on his last day of HPD motorcycle class. The eight-year veteran was fatally injured Monday in a crash during a training exercise. The city Medical Examiner’s office said Tuesday that Morimoto died of blunt force injuries to his torso. Morimoto is standing second from left. Edward Tabanera, kneeling below him, calls the photo a graduation picture of the new motorcycle officers. Tabanera and officer Kepi Visoria, second from right, were at the Lanikuhana Avenue site to pay their respects.
