Police: Body found off Hilo highway is Gilman's

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) Big Island police say a body they found off a Hilo highway last week is that of a 44-year-old man whose killing was captured on home surveillance camera.

Police said in a statement Monday they identified Dante Peter Gilman using dental records.

Police say they need to do more analysis to determine a cause of death. Officers are working with an anthropologist from the military's Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command to learn more.

Officials began searching for Gilman's body off Stainback Highway after receiving an anonymous tip.

They found another body in the area they later determined belonged to a 38-year-old man missing since December.

Two Kurtistown men have been charged in Gilman's killing. Both men have pleaded not guilty and are being held without bail.
