Bodies of two women discovered in harbor

By Curtis Lum
Advertiser Staff Writer

The bodies of two women were recovered from Honolulu Harbor within a half hour of each other yesterday in what police believe are unrelated cases.

Police do not believe foul play was involved in either death. The identities of the women and the cause of their deaths are pending autopsies, police said.

At about 7:15 a.m., a woman was found floating in the water near the Aloha Tower. The woman was retrieved and brought to shore, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said the woman appears to be of Asian ancestry and in her 20s.

Then at about 7:40 a.m., the body of an elderly woman was found floating about 300 yards off Pier 8 in Honolulu Harbor. The body, which police said had no visible injuries, was recovered and brought to shore.

Police said the woman appears to be in her 70s.

The women did not match the description of any person who has been reported missing, police said.
