HANAPEPE — An autopsy conducted on Thursday revealed that foul play is not suspected in the death of a woman whose body was found after firefighters responded to a brush fire in Hanapepe on Dec. 31.

The case has been classified as an unattended death.

Police have preliminarily identified the woman. However, DNA testing will be done to confirm her identity. Her name has not been released at this time, according to a press release.

“KPD would like to thank the public for their assistance in this investigation,” said Kauai Police Department Assistant Chief Bryson Ponce of the Investigative Services Bureau. “As a result of all the information gathered at this point, no foul play is suspected.”

A toxicology report is pending in this ongoing investigation.
