Man's body found in SUV; foul play suspected

KONA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A man's body was discovered in a car along a Big Island highway early Tuesday, and police believe foul play was involved in his death.

The body was found about 5 a.m. in a Honda SUV parked against the flow of traffic on the Daniel K. Inouye Highway.

Police said a reported shooting Monday night appears to be linked to the case.

About 11:56 p.m. Monday, police responded to a reported shooting in Waiakea Uka, but were unable to find a shooting victim.

Police did not say whether the man found in the SUV had a gunshot wound.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Police are asking for the public's help in the case. Specifically, they're asking anyone who may have seen the silver Honda SUV parked along the highway, or may have seen a man hitchhiking to Kona.
