Police spent the night searching for clues in Manoa after a body was found near the University of Hawaii. KITV 4's Ashley Moser is live from the scene with more. Ashley? Lara -- police say a hiker found the man along this wooded area at around 6 last night. I'm about ... yards from the East West Center on ... Street just across from faculty housing. University of Hawaii students say this area leads to an unmarked hiking trail ...behind me. At this time investigators have not released information about the identification of the man found or even if they think he was a hiker on the trail. I spoke to investigators this morning who tell me that this case is being ruled as an unattended death. Investigators still are unsure if foul play was involved. Police found another body yesterday -- this one in Waipahu. This happened out near Ko-ale'o street just up the road from the Hawaii Plantation Village. In that case police were on the scene around noon yesterday after getting a tip that a body was in the Waikele Stream. We're told there are homeless that live in that area and one person who didn't want to go on camera said she's seen the man who died around there before but police -- are still unsure if foul play is a factor. Police say the body was removed and was placed in a morgue. Cause of death -- still under investigation. So two cases of bodied found under investigation.
