    Kauai is no longer safe. How awful that women are disappearing Kauai makes San Francisco and New York look like the safest place in the world.

    If you don’t think Kauai is safe you haven’t lived in most places on the mainland. Kauai is a walk in the park compared to most places on the mainland these days.

    It would be great if KPD could release the cause of death for the last found/missing woman Joddielyn Taylor. If it was a homicide, I think Kauai’s residents have a right to know, especially Kauai’s Female residents!
