It was confirmed on Monday that the body found on Thursday, April 17 was that of Daniel Foster (31) from Frisco, Texas. An autopsy performed by authorities determined that he died of injuries consistent with a fall.
The man who had been camping with friends at Kalalau Beach wandered into the valley with a friend from Kirkland, Washington on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. The friend headed back to the beach when the terrain became dangerous while Daniel continued hiking alone. His friend became concerned when he never returned to camp and notified authorities. Rescuers found the body deep in the Kalalau Valley and the police were notified on Thursday.
No foul play is suspected.
