Media Release (update)

An autopsy has determined that 26-year-old Christopher S. Bortz of Kurtistown died May 13 from a medical condition and not from injuries he sustained that day in a one-vehicle crash in the Hawaiian Acres subdivision.

Because the death was not the result of a traffic crash, police have reduced the number of traffic fatalities to date this year from 14 to 13.
