By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:40 p.m. HST, Feb 26, 2014

A man found a badly decomposed body of a man Wednesday morning on a hillside near the top of Wilhelmina Rise.

Fire Capt. Terry Seelig said the man was flying a radio-controlled helicopter in his back yard at Kawelolani Place.

When he went to retrieve it, he smelled an odor, and discovered the badly decomposed body and called 911 about 10:45 a.m.

The Fire Department waited for police, then recovered the body and handed the remains over to police and the Medical Examiner's Office.

Police said the body was that of a 48-year-old man.

If so, he's gotten 22 years younger just in the short time he's been deceased.

Well it smells so bad anyway near our homes that it would be hard to detect! Geez!

Don't think so, but the article stated the finder was retrieving his downed remote controlled helicopter and then smelled something, so my guess it wasn't hear his home but down a slope or something.

Have you tried to reconcile the smell, because you and yours could be breathing toxic fumes for years before you realize you have protected yourself against preventable Cancer? I am not an expert, however for example if we consume charcoal laden chicken, pork and/or beef, sooner or later would expect to at least develop Colon Cancer. Look for blood in your excretions as a major warning sign to have both or one of your bladder and colon checked.

I grew up a block from Kawelolani and remember at age three, watching a solar eclipse in the late afternoon from the end of the street looking 'Ewa. Much nicer way to remember that tiny street.

If it was in Kaka'ako nobody would have noticed the odor.

Did this radio controlled helicopter have four rotors and a camera?
