A body found in Hilo over the weekend has been identified as 48-year-old Jodi L. Masutomi of Hilo, according to Big Island police.
She was identified through fingerprints during an autopsy conducted Tuesday.
The autopsy revealed that her injuries were consistent with a fall from a height. The cause of death is being deferred, however, pending a toxicology report.
A fisherman discovered the body along the shoreline off Hawai'i Belt Road in the Wainaku area shortly before midnight Saturday.
After midnight on April 30, Masutomi's tan 1997 4-door Toyota Camry sedan was found in Honomu.
Police ask anyone with information about the car or anything else about this case to contact Detective Norbert Serrao at 961-2383 or email@example.com.
