6'2" and 140 pounds means methamphetamine use. A devil drug that, I have been told, is regaining popularity in Puna. I live in the same subdivision as the victim. Several acquaintances of ours have recently been raided for marijuana growing. Plenty of money for marijuana helicopters while meth surges. Real screwed up priorities.
