    Shane Dilwith, 24, is wanted in connection with a murder in Mililani earlier this month.

Police and CrimeStoppers are asking for the public’s help in finding a 24-year-old man wanted in connection with the murder of a 51-year-old man who died last week – a week after being assaulted in a Mililani store.

Police identified the suspect as Shane Dilwith, who is known to frequent the Mililani area.

Police said Dilwith assaulted the victim without provocation at Jungle Juice Market, 95-020 Waihau St., at about 7:35 p.m. on Dec. 8. The man was taken in critical condition to a hospital where he died Friday.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office identified him as Thomas Morikawa, Jr., of Mililani. He died of head injuries, the office said.

Police opened a second-degree murder investigation.

Dilwith is 5 feet 8 inches with a medium build, black hair, and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME from a cell phone. Anonymous web tips can also be sent to the CrimeStoppers website or by downloading the free app P3 Tips.
