Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a body was found in Hanapepe.

Police say the body of Jon Togioka, 34, was found at around 7 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, by a man walking along the shoreline near Port Allen Airport, also known as Burns Field.

An autopsy confirmed the Kekaha man was murdered and suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

A police investigation led to the arrests of Clayton Kona, 38, and Koma Texeira, 20.

Both are being held in police cellblock in lieu of $500,000 bail and are expected to be charged in court later this week.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Chris Calio at 241-1683 or Police Dispatch at 241-1711.
