Honolulu police detectives are following up on leads in the investigation into the death of a man found at Moanalua Community Park Friday night.
Police believe the man may have been in a fight sometime before 11:30 p.m. on Friday. Investigators are still trying to determine if the fight happened at the park or somewhere else, said Det. Gordon Makishima of the Honolulu Police Department.
Police said the man, 42, was found by a friend who saw him lying on the ground in the parking lot near the basketball courts with head injuries. The victim was taken to Queen’s Medical Center where he died.
Police received tips of the man’s identification over the weekend after a CrimeStoppers news release on the case, but his identiy remains unconfirmed at this time, said Sgt. Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.
An autopsy is being performed to determine his exact cause of death.
