Homicide detectives are at the Waipio crime scene today. Crimestoppers describes the victim as a large-build man with tattoos, including: a cross on a calf; "evil," "pain" and "hatered" written in an band around a wrist; and a design on an upper arm.

The 'competition' has a picture of the 'cross,' too. Dude was beheaded & police call this a 'possible' homicide. Wonder what evidence it takes to make it a 'real' homicide?

Competition news sites showed pix of the cross, too. Funny how the police call it 'potential homicide' when the guy was decapitated. Wonder what other evidence it would take to be considered a 'real homicide'?
