Media Release (update No. 2)

Hawaiʻi Island police have located the car of a woman whose body was found in Hilo over the weekend.

The tan 1997 Toyota Camry four-door sedan was found in Honomū just after midnight Wednesday (April 30). Police thank the public for their assistance.

A fisherman discovered the body along the shoreline off Hawaiʻi Belt Road in the Wainaku area shortly before midnight Saturday (April 26). She was identified through fingerprints as 48-year-old Jodi L. Masutomi of Hilo.

An autopsy conducted Tuesday (April 29) revealed that her injuries were consistent with a fall from a height. The cause of death is being deferred, however, pending a toxicology report.

Police ask anyone with information about this case to contact Detective Norbert Serrao at 961-2383 or nserrao@co.hawaii.hi.us.
