Maui Police say a visitor suffered massive head injuries from a fall from a 10 story balcony yesterday. The woman was found unresponsive near the poolside area of the Westin Kaanapali Hotel in Lahaina. Authoritites have since identified the woman as 52-year-old Laurie J. Brunner-Chapple of Sunnyville, California. Lt. Chad Viela of the Maui Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Divison said although foul play has been ruled out, the incident remains under investigation to determine exact circumstances. An autopsy was conducted this morning, with results pending release.
