HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A deadly North Shore crash, a double-shooting in Halawa and a controversial exhibit, top this week's most viewed stories, on KHNL.com.


Counting down number 3: Body Exhibit 

"There's a lot of interesting things and I was really surprised to see what a human body really looks like," said a young visitor.

An exhibition showcasing preserved human bodies heads to Hawaii next month. It's an eye-catching, heart-pumping show that has dazzled audiences around the world. Organizers say this is an opportunity for people to learn about themselves. But these models are not without controversy. They're unclaimed bodies from China. It could be a sensitive topic in Hawaii, where respect for dead ancestors is important.


Number 2: Murder-Suicide

"They're a pretty quiet family, yeah, so when we found out what happened, it was a pretty shocking ordeal," said a neighbor.

Honolulu police police rushed to an apartment in Halawa heights, after receiving a dropped 911 call. They found the bodies of a man in his 60s and a woman in her 40s. According to police, both had gunshot wounds to the body. They also found a gun at the scene. Autopsies confirmed the woman's husband shot her and then turned the gun on himself. It's the second murder-suicide on Oahu in two months.


And the number one story: Deadly Crash

Traffic investigators are trying to determine whether drugs played a role in a deadly crash on Oahu's North Shore. Police say a car was traveling on Kamehameha Highway at a high speed, when the driver lost control and slammed into a concrete barrier. The 30-year-old driver died at the scene. Sources say the Honolulu Medical Examiner's office found a glass pipe containing a leafy substance, resembling marijuana on the driver.
