Wordless Wednesday – Mysterious Facebook Comment Leaves Me Wondering About Body Found Hanging in Puna Last Week

1/28/14 UPDATE: Hawaiʻi Island police have identified human remains as that of a 47-year-old man reported missing in 2012.

Robert Allen Park of Mountain View was reported missing on October 22, 2012.

On January 6 of this year, human remains were found in an abandoned house on Pikake Street in the Fern Acres subdivision.

The body was identified as Park on Monday (January 27) through dental records.

An autopsy was conducted January 7 but the cause of death is still pending. Police do not suspect foul play.

So last week I received a  private message on my public “Facebook Page” from someone who obviously follows this website.  They informed me that there was a body found hanging in an old shack last on Pikake near Rose St.

Facebook message I received last week.

I haven’t heard anything from local authorities however, the person swears to the event happening and an officer allegedly came by their house to ask them if they had heard of anything.

UPDATE:

The body found on Pikake was a suicide. His name was Robert Park. …..There were several signs posted in the Fern Acres area “Looking for Rob”.
