Hawai’i Island police are investigating the discovery of a body found off of the Daniel K. Inouye Highway on Thursday morning.

The incident was reported at 6:35 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2019. Patrol officers responded to the area of the Mauna Kea access road and the Daniel K. Inouye Highway intersection, after receiving a report of an unresponsive male lying next to a white, late model Ford hatchback parked just off of the roadway.

Police say foul play is not suspected and have classified the case as a Coroner’s Inquest.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday morning to determine the exact cause of death. The victim’s name is being withheld pending positive identification and notification of the next of kin.

Anyone who may have seen the white hatchback parked in the area earlier in the morning or have any other information about this incident is asked to call Detective Kayne Kelli at (808) 961-2378 or email [email protected]
