COURTESY CRIMESTOPPERS HONOLULU

Brae Sales was arrested at Halawa Correctional Facility, where he is being held for a separate case.

Honolulu police on Thursday arrested a 32-year-old man in connection with the death of a 29-year-old man whose body was found in Kahaluu in March.

Police arrested Brae Sales on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of Keith Zalonka.

Zalonka’s body was found in a vehicle in Kahaluu on March 15. Police said he died of “non-accidental traumatic injuries caused by another person.”

Through an investigation, Sales was identified as a suspect and arrested Thursday at the Halawa Correctional Facility, where he is being held on a separate case for a felony terroristic threatening charge.

Sales was released back to the correctional facility pending further investigation.

The investigation is ongoing.
