Victim in drug-related explosion dies

By 67AM KPUA News

A 30-year old Kea`au man who was seriously injured last month in a butane honey oil lab explosion has died from his injuries. The man, whose name is being withheld pending notification of relatives, was pronounced dead shortly before 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Straub Medical Center in Honolulu.

The December 28 blast on 17th Avenue in Hawaiian Paradise Park knocked out windows, melted plumbing fixtures and blew the doors off cabinets. Police say they found evidence of a lab used to manufacture the marijuana byproduct butane honey oil.
