Media Release

The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted” highlights a 23-year-old man still wanted in a murder investigation, a man wanted for questioning about two thefts and a burglary, and an indentified man wanted in a Hilo robbery.

The new episode begins airing Friday (December 20).

In it, police again 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, whose 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 man wanted for questioning about two thefts and a burglary in Puna. Thomas J. Desimone is 43 years old and has no permanent address. He is described as 5-foot-8, 170 pounds with blue eyes, brown hair, a mustache and goatee.

In this latest edition of “Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted,” Officer Patrick Menino also asks for help in identifying a suspect in a Hilo robbery. A 43-year-old Hilo woman reported that between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on November 4, she was walking with a bicycle on Mililani Street between Piʻilani Street and Hualani Street when she was approached by a man who demanded money, threatened her and fled with cash. The victim was not injured in the encounter. The suspect is described as a local male between 5-foot-10 and 5-foot-11 with a muscular build, dark brown eyes, very short black hair and a tan complexion. He was wearing surf shorts and a dirty blue tank top.

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.
