KALALAU — A team of detectives from the Kaua‘i Police Department along with personnel from the state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry and Wildlife flew in to Kalalau Valley Monday morning to investigate a report of bones that were found there, a county news release states.

Police have determined the remains to be that of a human.

The bones were old and weathered with no articles of clothing attached, according to police.

The bones were brought to police headquarters in Lihu‘e for processing and documentation.

Arrangements are being made to send the remains to a lab on O‘ahu today for possible identification.

    Only aerial footage was shot on Kauai for "A Perfect Getaway". The rest was filmed in Puerto Rico so no props in Kalalau

    Remember the movie filmed there in 2009, "The perfect getaway.?

    It was based on the novel, "Murder on the Kalalau."

    Maybe Hollywood forgot to clean-up and this is just a missing prop. Aloha, Kimobama

    We may be jumping to conclusions here. I'd say they already determined that the bones are not of ancient origin, but are contemporary. Too bad the article didn't go into that. The police have way too may things to do than to waste their limited time and resources examining ancient bones.

    Why isn't the Burial Council mentioned here? Aren't they supposed to be involved from the start also? Seems like the Hawaiian protocol part always gets looked over.
