A body found by a fisherman on Hawaii island over the weekend has been identified as 48-year-old Jodi L. Masutomi of Hilo.

She was identified through fingerprints during an autopsy conducted Tuesday.

The autopsy revealed that her injuries were consistent with a fall from a height. The cause of death is being deferred, however, pending a toxicology report.

A fisherman discovered the body along the shoreline off Hawaii Belt Road in the Wainaku area shortly before midnight Saturday.

Police have not been able to locate Masutomi's car, a tan 1997 Toyota Camry four-door sedan, license plate HXP 413.

Police ask anyone with information about the car or anything else about this case to contact Detective Norbert Serrao at 961-2383 or nserrao@co.hawaii.hi.us. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call CrimeStoppers number at 961-8300.
