Big Island police identify man found dead in water

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Hawaii County Police have identified a man found dead Monday off North Kohala.

West Hawaii Today reports the man was 71-year-old Alfredo Orita.

He was spotted shortly before 11:30 a.m. face down in waters off Old Kohala Mill Road,

Police say a companion of Orita, a 71-year-old woman, told officers that Orita was using a throw net along the coastline near Old Halaula Lighthouse.

The woman lost sight of Orita for several minutes and then saw him in the water.

A Hawaii County Fire Department helicopter found Orita's body 200 yards offshore.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine cause of death.
