Newlywed on Hawaii Honeymoon Found Dead

Newser — Josh Gardner

A newlywed on his honeymoon in Hawaii was found dead at the tragic end of a 4-day search that began after he failed to return from a hiking trail.

Per WUSA, Stephen Kramar of Gaithersburg, Maryland was at the Wavecrest Resort in Kaunakakai, Molokai when he told his new wife he was going to check out a trail the morning of Sept. 17 before she joined him in order to ensure it was safe.

The 27-year-old texted that he was on his way back that afternoon but never returned.

Per Maui Now, the days of searching, with the help of volunteers, ended Friday morning when remains were found on a hillside in an area called Pia Gulch, just a half-mile from the resort.

Family members have since positively identified the body as Kramar's. An autopsy has been scheduled and no official cause of death has yet been determined. A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise money that will benefit Kramar's family by offsetting transportation costs and other fees.

As of Sunday afternoon, nearly $20,000 had been raised.
