3 bodies discovered in separate incidents around Oahu

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:31 p.m. HST, Sep 16, 2013

Police and fire crews responded to three separate incidents Sunday in which bodies were discovered on Oahu.

Around 12:30 p.m., a party of four hikers descending from the Makapuu Lighthouse trail toward a set on tidepools on the shoreline discovered a body near a cave along the cliff.

Police and fire crews worked together to retrieve the body and airlift it to a landing zone at Sandy Beach Park. 

Police officials could not confirm the sex or approximate age of the body and the cause of death has yet to be determined. Police also said that it was not clear how long the body had been there.

About an hour after the body at Makapuu was discovered, Honolulu Fire Department personnel and Ocean Safety personnel were called to an area near the Pearl City peninsula, where a body was seen floating in the water.

Firefighters retrieved the body of a 60-year-old man who witnesses said had been seen fishing in the area earlier in the day, according to HFD spokesman Capt. Tyler Chan.

Around 4:30 p.m., police were called to an area near Waiawa Correctional Facility, where a body was discovered off to the side of Mililani Cemetery Road.

IRT Honolulu, yes. There are over 900,000 people living on Oahu. Way more than three people die each day here, from natural causes and from accidents and murder.

The zombies ARE the C&C workers. State employees are a different type of zombie. Both have employees that are the walking dead, or brain dead or actually both!

That's how another media reported about the body down on steep slope, hidden by shrubbery. The male indicated the odor of rotting flesh and the female finally was able to see the limbs. The deaths are not related as one was seen snorkeling, the other on the cliff side and the 3rd, stinking and rotting body in a gully.

Great state of mind you have Kainalu. HPD would still catch you but the courts would release you no doubt.

Kainalu, you do have an original point of view. Now the problem is too thorough of an investigation? Find somethying better to whine about. How Obamacare? Everyone blames Obamacare.
