Police identify 1 of 2 bodies found in Hilo

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) Big Island police have identified one of two badly decomposed bodies found in Hilo.

The body found Jan. 18 off Stainback Highway is not that of 44-year-old Dante Peter Gilman. It has been identified as 38-year-old Shane Yoshi Kalani Kobayashi of Pahoa.

Police found the body while searching for Gilman, who police say was murdered at his home on Dec. 28. Two men have been charged with murder in that killing.

Kobayashi was last seen at his home on Dec. 11. Police suspect foul play in his death. He has a long criminal history and 23 convictions, and went missing while there was a motion to revoke his probation because of positive drug tests.

Another badly decomposed body was found earlier this week off Stainback highway.
