Hilo man died of fall injuries, medical examiner says

Big Island police say a 57-year-old Hilo man found dead in a parking lot yesterday apparently died of a fall and that foul play was not involved.

A medical examiner determined today that Roy Lemon died of “blunt force injury” consistent with a fall, police said.

Detectives were awaiting results of a toxicology analysis.

Police said Lemon was found unresponsive with a head injury in a private parking lot off Kalakaua Street about 7:23 a.m. Thursday.

He was taken to Hilo Medical Center where he died at 8:27 a.m. Detectives are still investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers in Hilo at 961-8300 or in Kona at 329-8181.
