Police recover body at Lumaha‘i

LUMAHA‘I — Police recovered the body of a man found dead Wednesday morning in a remote area of Lumaha‘i Beach on the North Shore.

The cause of death remains undetermined, but police do not suspect foul play, according to a press release issued Thursday by the Kauai Police Department.

Police said the man has been preliminary identified as someone with no permanent address who was known to live along the beach at Lumaha‘i.

According to the press release, community members told police they had not seen the man in a while and went to check on him Wednesday at his known campsite along Lumaha‘i Beach, where he was discovered dead at about 8:30 a.m.

The man’s name is being withheld pending an autopsy to confirm his identity, along with the cause of his death, and police are continuing to investigate.

    Odd that in the last week there have been two regular Kauai beach living persons found dead.

    Has someone found an effective way to rid the island of homeless?

      That’s rather harsh. Effective doesn’t mean legal. I’m not sure such crass statements add to the conversation, either.

    Uhhhh, two homeless people found dead within days of each other…? No foul play involved…? You sure KPD…?
