Man suffers gunshot to back of neck off Kapaa Quarry Road

By Rob Shikina


A 29-year-old man whose body was found in a park off Kapaa Quarry Road on Thursday died of a gunshot wound to the back of the neck, the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office said Friday.

The office identified the man as William Fallau, of Kaneohe, and ruled his death a homicide. Neighbors said Fallau has a young daughter.

Police said they were investigating Friday night and will reclassify the case as a murder. Detectives did not have any suspects.

Police said hikers reported a man with no signs of life and suspicious injuries at Kawainui State Park Reserve at 5:37 p.m. Authorities pronounced Fallau dead at 5:50 p.m.

Honolulu police Capt. Lester Hite said on Thursday night that there appeared to be signs of trauma to the man’s cheek and eyes.

“There was a loss of blood,” he said.

He said the body was found in an open area between the second and third row of a set of wooden benches that are about 30 yards behind a hill facing the road. No weapons were found.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.

So what? If got no real information you just print everything twice to make it look like a bigger article? The SA is rapidly heading downhill...

Very sad...if this is the place I'm thinking of, volunteers have spent countless hours restoring this area with trails and foliage that opens up to the back of Kawainui Marsh. This young man could have just been out there enjoying nature when this incident occurred. A group of us were just there on Wednesday, with children, learning about the history of this place. We saw several people enjoying this trail as well. The creepy thing is we met at 8:30 in the morning and two police cars came up to us and said someone had driven past and called to report that there were people on the side of the road smoking ice. My friend said there was a truck parked across the street from this area that had left just before the police arrived. I don't use this back road very often and with LeJardin campus nearby, I would encourage drivers who see suspicious activity to continue to call the police - they do respond.

Thanks for the information. I believe the public MUST be involved in curtailing crime. We need to lose the AINOKEA attitude and get involved. I've had occasion to call 911 and was very impressed at how quickly HPD responded.

Does AINOKEA apply to the recent massacre in Colorado too?

I've often called the police for such activity, and they NEVER CAME! I'm currently in possession of 2 seperate "letters of apology" from 2 seperate Mayors related to that issue. I got the standard "It was a busy night" response. It is was it is, but if you call 911 with a non-emergency, such as reporting "suspicious activity", there's a chance that HPD doesn't come. Simply put, I don't call the police for such matters anymore. You can engage in all the "suspicious activity" you want, I'm not wasting my time making the call.
