NTSB: Fuddy's cause of death not immediately known

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The lead investigator for the Molokai plane crash says it could take some time before officials determine exactly how Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy died.

Hawaii-based National Transportation Safety Board investigator Jim Struhsaker (stroo-SAY'-kur) said Friday it is generally common that a cause of death isn't immediately known in these types of investigations.

Fuddy was the sole fatality out of nine people aboard the Makani Kai Air flight that crashed in the water soon after taking off from Kalaupapa last week.

Maui police say the cause of death isn't yet known, even though an autopsy was conducted one week ago. Fuddy's funeral is scheduled for Saturday in Honolulu.

Struhsaker says the investigation involves interviewing those who were near her in the water.
