Bad weather appears to have caused the death of a 74-year-old Holauloa man this week, Hawaii island police said.
William Ryder, a seasonal coffee farm worker, was found dead about 6:30 a.m. Monday in Holualoa, police said.
He had been living in a shack-like structure with no walls, which apparently was blown about 150 feet from its foundation.
Ryder appeared to have been within the 384-square-foot, iron-roofed structure when it toppled, causing his death, police said.
Police Maj. Rob Wagner said Ryder had been seen alive the day before.
An autopsy was conducted and final results are pending the outcome toxicology tests. No foul play is suspected.
Police asked anyone with information on the incident to call Lt. William Gary Souther at 808-326-4646 ext. 253.
