Media Release (update No. 3)
Hawai’i Police Department detectives have identified one potential witness captured on a surveillance video but are still seeking the occupants of a vehicle who may be witnesses to events surrounding the death of 5-year-old Javieanne Win.
In reviewing surveillance videos, detectives observed a small sports-utility vehicle turning right from Shipman Street onto Kamehameha Avenue. Detectives believe the occupants of the SUV may have seen little Javieanne Win near the building on the Hāmākua side of Shipman Street. Detectives believe the SUV is a Toyota RAV 4 with surf racks. It appears to be red or maroon.
The surveillance videos of Kamehameha Avenue between Shipman Street and Waiānuenue Avenue were taken at 2:13 p.m. on September 6.
On Monday (September 14) police also asked for help in identifying a pedestrian seen in the video. He has since been identified.
Police ask that anyone with information about this case call Lieutenant Mitchell Kanehailua at 961-2252. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
