Media Release

The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted” highlights a 23-year-old man wanted in a murder investigation, a 40-year-old woman wanted for a domestic incident and a 30-year-old man wanted for a stabbing.

The new episode begins airing Friday (September 6).

In it, police ask for help in locating 23-year-old Boaz David Johnson, who is still at large and wanted for the strangulation death of his girlfriend, Brittany-Jane Royal. Her body was found in the ocean off Kalapana on May 28. Johnson is described as Caucasian, about 5-foot-7, about 150 pounds with a slim build and a fair complexion. He was last seen unshaven and with medium-length brown hair. He has a tattoo of the upper body of a horse near the right side of his abdomen. He is considered dangerous.

The television program also asks for help in locating a 40-year-old Puna woman wanted in connection with a reported burglary and domestic incident in Kurtistown on August 16. Mary Lolita Santos of Mountain View is also wanted on a $5,000 bench warrant for a felony theft case. She is described as 5-foot-2, 147 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

In this latest edition of “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted,” Officer Patrick Menino also asks for help in locating a Kona man wanted for a stabbing at White Sands Beach in Kona on May 22, 2012. The assault sent a 39-year-old Mountain View man to the hospital with a stab wound to the neck. Thirty-year-old Tommy Eugan Howard also goes by the names Casino, Tommy Washington and Cesar Waltz. He is described as African-American, 5-foot-7, 145 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes—but he might wear contact lenses that alter his eye color. He has a tattoo of a chain of musical notes that runs from his left shoulder down along his left arm. He may be in Kailua-Kona or Pāpaikou. He is also wanted by the Washington State Department of Corrections for failure to register as a sex offender.

Police ask that anyone with information about any of these men call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential. Crime Stoppers does not tape record phone calls or subscribe to caller ID.
