Authorities with the Hawaii Police Department have scheduled a press conference this afternoon to update the public on the Brittany Jane Royal murder.
Brittany’s body was found in the ocean fronting the then-lava entry, the day after Memorial Day. In the early stages of pregnancy, Brittany was strangled, authorities have said.
Brittany had been camping on the lava with her boyfriend Boaz Johnson. The Alaska native has not been seen since. Police have previously named him a suspect in Brittany’s murder.
