HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu police are renewing their investigation of the death of a 42-year-old Alaska man killed six months ago in a hit-and-run.
The body of Marc Bucho of Homer was found at about 8 p.m. April 19 on Kalanianaole Highway near Hilu Street in Waimanalo.
His ex-wife, Emily Bucho, suspects foul play.
She says that months before his death, Bucho told her that if he died in Hawaii, it would not be an accident.
Emily Bucho says she suspects he owed money to a drug dealer.
She tells the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that Bucho could no longer work in construction because of extreme stomach pain and took oxycodone or hydrocodone for relief.
She says he often was short of money because he could not work.
