MAKAPUU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Medical Examiner confirmed Friday it was a father and daughter, 51 year old Charles Casados and 11 year old Stephanie Casados, who were somehow, killed near the tide pools at Makapuu Thursday.

Police say there is still no evidence of foul play, but how they died is still a mystery. Police are still waiting for the medical examiner to complete autopsies.  Charles Casados was found floating in the ocean just beyond the tide pools.  Stephanie's body was found on the rocks near the water.

Stephanie was a sixth grader at Kaimuki Middle School. The principal there tells Hawaii News Now she was a strong, friendly student. Educators at the school told her classmates what happened and made psychologists available to offer guidance.

According to Charles Casados' website his youngest daughter studied ballet, and Japanese language. She loved fishing, tennis and golf. Charles lived in Hawaii for 25 years and was a real estate expert who ran several Waikiki vacation rentals.

The tide pools at Makapuu are a popular spot for hikers and snorkelers. But the ocean just beyond the pools is treacherous.

"It's one of those things, once you get in the water, unless it's a completely flat day, it's going to be hard for you to get out of the water for sure. I mean the rocks are jagged," said Steve Robb, a Manoa resident who spent part of Friday at the pools with a friend.
