    When Kapaa resident Amber Jackson, 57, didn’t show up for dinner with friends on a June evening in 2010, they knew right away that something was wrong. Her body was found a week later in a remote area of Kealia by a pig farmer, badly decomposed. The case remains open and unsolved.

LIHU‘E — A decade ago today, a pig farmer uncovered Amber Jackson’s remains in a remote wooded area of Kealia, and hope to close this cold case is being aided by advancements in technology.
