LIHUE, Hawaii -

Officers recovered the body of a 37-year-old man Tuesday morning in a vacant lot along Ahukini Road in Lihue, according to Kauai police.

The man has been identified as Lancelot Johnson.

Johnson is believed to have been homeless and living in the grassy area where his body was located, near the cane haul road next to Wal-Mart. His body was located by a field worker of the company that leases the property.

The man’s death remains under police investigation, but police do not suspect foul play.

An autopsy of the man’s body is scheduled for early next week.
