A 17-year-old Kalihi boy who died Friday morning on Kalanianaole Highway was not the victim of a hit and run.

Instead, police now believe Boydshiro Maycry may have fallen out of a vehicle. They’re looking to the public and the victim’s friends for help.

Police want the people who were with the victim to come forward with information. But those friends say they don’t have much to share.

“We never heard nothing. We never see nothing until the cop showed up,” Maycry’s cousin Brightley Palss said.

Palss says early Friday morning, he and about 14 others were hanging out at Sandy Beach. He says his cousin wandered off alone, which he often did. About half an hour later, at 2:30 a.m., they noticed a police officer nearby.

“At that time, we were about to leave, but then we started to see the lights and then we were wondering what was going on,” Maycry’s brother Yosiw Maycry said.

That’s when they say they noticed the teenager’s body on the road.

“Autopsies came back this afternoon that showed he wasn’t a victim of a hit and run. That the injuries weren’t consistent,” CrimeStoppers Sgt. Kim Buffet said.

The Medical Examiner said the teen died of head injuries. Police believe he may have fallen out of a car.

While family members say the 17 year old was drinking alcohol, he was not disoriented. They told KHON2 News, no one except the victim left the area, and they didn’t witness anything suspicious.

Still, police are encouraging those who were with Maycry to come forward with more information.

“So we’re asking maybe that the people that were there to come forward and tell us what happened. We’re not looking at criminal charges right now because this may have just been an accident,” Sgt. Buffet said.

Those who were with the teen right before he died are still in shock and say they don’t know what happened.

“Just still hard to believe, hard to say. Can’t swallow the fact that he’s gone,” Palss said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.
