Man killed in fall from tree is ID'd

A 46-year-old man who fell while working on a tree Saturday has died.

The Medical Examiner's Office has identified the man as Victorio T. Ulep of Honolulu.

Sex offender held for not registering

Glenn W. Botelho Jr.

U.S. marshal deputies apprehended a man in Wahiawa yesterday on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender.

Glenn W. Botelho Jr. agreed to meet authorities at the Wahiawa police substation at 10:20 a.m. and was arrested.

Botelho was convicted in April 2000 in U.S. District Court in Hawaii of one count of abusive sexual contact with a person under the age of 12. After serving six years, Botelho was released on probation. One condition of his release was to register for life as a convicted sex offender, which he has failed to do since 2008, the U.S. Marshals Service said. Marshals investigated him after learning of his noncompliance and pursued a federal grand jury arrest warrant on Thursday. He is now at the federal detention center.


17-year-old crash victim is identified

Police identified the 17-year-old driver who died in a fatal car crash in Kauai on Sunday as Corbin Reynolds.

At about 1 a.m., Reynolds, of Kekaha, was driving westbound in a Toyota pickup truck on Kaumualii Highway near Manu Road when he crossed the center line and struck a guardrail. Police said he was thrown from the truck and died at the scene.

His 17-year-old passenger was transported to Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital in serious condition. He has since been discharged.
