HONOLULU (AP) - Police say a Honolulu teen whose body was found in front of Sandy Beach may have been riding on the hood of a moving car.
Lt. Robert Towne told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the 17-year-old boy's head injuries and evidence at the scene suggest he was engaged in a stunt known as "hood surfing" or "ghost riding."
A patrol officer found the boy unresponsive Friday on Kalanianaole Highway.
Investigators found no evidence at the scene of a vehicle hitting the boy, and autopsy showed that his injuries were not consistent with a hit-and-run accident.
The Medical Examiner's office identified him as Boydshiro A. Maycry.
Maycry's family said he had been cruising with his brother, relatives and friends at Sandy Beach.
