Maui police withhold ID of victim of suspected homicide



WAILUKU >> Maui police are waiting for the family of the victim of a suspected homicide to arrive from California before releasing her identity.

Lt. Wayne Ibarra says the family is expected to arrive on Maui this week to positively identify the woman who was found dead Thursday near Nakalele Point. Ibarra says an autopsy was conducted Monday. A cause of death won’t be released until after she’s identified.

She had been seen arguing with a man, who jumped into the water when police arrived. Police found the woman’s body in a rocky area below the roadway.

Ibarra says the 38-year-old man from Santa Cruz, Calif., remains hospitalized since Friday, when he was rescued from a reef in the water. Police have yet to release the man’s name, who has not yet been arrested.
