UMAUMA, Hawaii – Police have identified the body of the woman found Monday (June 1) in Umauma Stream as 62-year-old Bobbie Jackie Carnathan of Kailua-Kona.
Carnathan was reported missing on Saturday (May 30). An missing person flyer was posted on our Facebook page, with a message that “her last verified contact was Wednesday, May 27th at 11a.m. She went zip lining at Botanical World Adventures in Hakalau, HI.” The message was shared on the same day her body was found in Umauma Stream.
Police did not immediately identify the body, but eventually confirmed it was Carnathan through fingerprints.
An autopsy conducted Wednesday (June 3) determined that she died from traumatic injuries consistent with a fall from a height. Police do not suspect foul play. Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue to investigate this incident, which is classified as a coroner’s inquest. They ask witnesses who may have seen Carnathan on a “Hele On” bus or who had any contact with her at the World Botanical Gardens and Waterfalls park in Hakalau to contact Detective Dean Uyetake at 961-2379 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Hawaii County Police Dept.
