before they even i.d. the body. which means they're not even sure yet who it is but they know foul play is not involved.

Before you conspiracy theorists go calling 5-0, the X-Files, or Indiana Jones, there's probably a simple, legit reason the police have taken their time to ID both the car and body. Maybe something to do with notifying the family, or possibly things happened to the body that made it difficult to identify. Lots of maybes, most are not worth making a movie out of.

Million, agree. Let Maui police do their job. With DNA testing and dental records, it's not rocket science.

Confusing lead. "Maui police have identified the owner of a vehicle found at the bottom of a ravine with the body of a woman inside." Makes it sound like they matched the owner with the body already. Then at the bottom they say no ID yet, but foul play has been ruled out. I agree with the previous commenters, how did they rule out foul play? No obvious gunshot wounds maybe, but perhaps somebody ran her off the cliff.
