The Hawaii Police Department has identified the fugitive who drowned while he fled officers on Monday:

“The drowning victim is tentatively identified as 37-year-old Akoni Hoke Napooakaokala Dias, with a last known address in Hawaiian Paradise Park. Dias had been sought on four drug court warrants issued on Jan. 22 for violating the terms of his probation. Total bail for warrants was $200,000.”

Dias apparently drowned when an ocean swell swept him off a ledge and tossed him into the ocean.
