New episode of ‘Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted’ is on air
The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted” highlights a 23-year-old man still wanted in a murder investigation, a man wanted for questioning in connection with sexual assaults and a man wanted on bench warrants and for questioning in other cases.
The new episode began airing Friday. In it, police again ask for help in locating 23-year-old Boaz David Johnson, who is still at large and wanted for the strangulation death of his girlfriend, Brittany-Jane Royal, whose body was found in the ocean off Kalapana on May 28.
Johnson is described as Caucasian, about 5-foot-7, about 150 pounds with a slim build and a fair complexion. He was last seen unshaven and with medium-length brown hair. He has a tattoo of the upper body of a horse near the right side of his abdomen. He is considered dangerous.
The television program also asks for help in locating 45-year-old Rudolfo Gomoban Rios Jr. — also known as Rudy Rios — who has no permanent address. He is wanted for questioning in an investigation into multiple sexual assaults involving minors. Rios is described as 5-foot-6, 145 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.
Police ask that anyone with information about any of these men call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential. Crime Stoppers does not tape record phone calls, nor subscribe to caller ID.
