Police arrest suspect in death of Oregon woman

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:41 p.m. HST, Jun 05, 2013

Honolulu police say they have arrested a suspect on suspicion of murder in the death of an Oregon woman whose body was found along a cliff on the Makaha side of Yokohama Bay last month.

Ivanice “Ivy” Harris was last seen outside a pub on Lewers Street and Kalakaua Avenue at about 2 a.m. on May 16th. Her body was discovered a few days later.

She arrived in Hawaii on May 7 and had been planning to celebrate her 29th birthday with friends on May 18th.

Police arrested 38-year-old Nathaniel L. Cosby this morning at the Honolulu Airport on suspicion of second-degree murder, according to the police arrest records.

A newsletter from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Japan, shows Cosby was promoted to the rank of master sergeant in November.

Harris, who was from Portland, Ore., lived in Las Vegas, according to her Facebook page, which shows a picture of her smiling as she stood on a beach, posted May 15.

Friends said Harris worked as a prostitute.

"It does not matter what she did for a living or anything else, whether she was a working girl or not," said friend Jillian Gibi­des in an interview last month. "All that matters is to find out who killed my girlfriend."

Thanks Steve. This "Yokohama Bay" is really annoying. And it's more annoying when even some Hawaiian kids call it that. It could be that when locals call it "Yokohama Bay"... it's easier to say that ... than Keawaula.

Wow, your ignorance is astounding. One of Christ's closest disciples, Mary Magdalan, was said to be a prostitute was she not? He also spoke out on behalf of prostitutes. Not once did he speak from a point of view of those who condemn them.

Not very compassionate Aieagirl and very judgmental. Maybe it is the only choice she thought she had, It is the worlds oldest profession. So, funny is not a word you should be using when something is so sad.

Her friends are right, it does not matter what she did for a living. What matters is the courts need to stop handing out light sentences. Why can't the state expand or build a bigger prisons? Is paying for a rail system more important than public safety? Until the state system improves, justified homicide would work for me.

You can find her Facebook page very easy. Her friend and her were working Waikiki with backpagedotcom ads every year at that time. The two women were living and traveling with their 'man', who hides his 'profession' by pretending to be a rapper. The women financed his cars and lifestyle. Kept me busy for a couple of hours to pilfer through these lowlifes FB photo albums. Too dumb to switch them to private.

it didn't sound like a local crime to me but i think you may be on to something. which could explain why she ended up where she did. i personally thought it was someone else other than a local when i first heard about this and that they left her body there because they where attempting to cover their tracks to make it look like a "local". it also sounded premeditated to me as if "that" person she was talking to was attempting to take advantage of her. i immediately thought of another person not local but temporary to the islands. her friends up front said she was a call girl in vegas - you don't put that out with out knowing your friend is/was on the up-and-up. and to HD36 if what you say she possibly attempted to do in your post, she would have done it and at most would have been reported as a mugging buy some "local" who escaped on a scooter or who ran off under a darkly lighted coconut trail. she should have just kept to being on vacation but who know what the murderer offered her on her birthday vacation. hopefully they can find matching dna to lock who ever did this solid. hey maybe that's "allie" which is why s-he hasn't posted yet. scary. rip Ivy.
