Body found

Big-Island-police-badge-jpgHILO, Hawaii —An autopsy conducted Tuesday on the body of a man found floating in Hilo Bay last week has ruled out foul play in his death, according to police.

The medical examiner determined that the unidentified man died from asphyxia due to drowning. Detectives are still attempting to confirm his identity so they can notify his family.

Shortly after 8 p.m. on Sept. 24, the unresponsive man was found floating face down about 15 feet from shore at the 100 block of Banyan Drive.

Police ask anyone with information about this case to call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or contact Detective Todd Pataray at 961-2382 or todd.pataray@hawaiicounty.gov.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the islandwide Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
