Big Island Police Initiate Coroner’s Inquest in Connection with Body Found in Hilo

Hawaiʻi Island police have initiated a coroner’s inquest case in connection with a body found in Hilo over the weekend.

HPDBadgeSouth Hilo patrol officers responded to an 11:42 p.m. call Saturday (April 26) and received information that a fisherman had discovered a body along the shoreline off Hawaiʻi Belt Road in the Wainaku area.

The body, believed to be that of a female Caucasian, has not been identified.

Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section, who are reviewing missing person cases, have not ruled out foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday (April 29), to determine the cause of death and to attempt identification of the victim.

  1. this might of been my cousin Jessica Urbina.

  2. For those of us who have family, I think detailed descriptions of these bodies being found would be benificial to the victims, the possible family members of the victims and also the victims family. People somunfairly etimes experience difficulty that prevents them from staying in contact with their family members but I am certain anyone with family would agree that you wouldn’t want someone to fall off the face of the earth unknown! Also these missing persons are becoming far to frequent and conclusions seem unfairly unknown. :'(

    • (and also the investigators). People sometimes experience difficulty that prevents them from having contact. :'( (sorry for typos my phone seemed to be stuck!).
