Just had a very amusing phone conversation with Edward Elarth a.k.a. Kalapana Ed and who police say was the last person to speak with Boaz Johnson on the telephone before Boaz disappeared and after Brittany Jane Royal’s body was recovered from the ocean May 29. Kalapana Ed refuses to speak with Big Island Chronicle until I connect him with my “money man.” He seems to think that the story he has to tell is worth of some sort of price. He has no idea what the Big Island Chronicle is about and has no clue that I do not have a money man or any desire to pay a dime to him for his story.
If he chooses to tell his story and sell it somewhere, I wish him luck with that. Obviously he has no philanthropic desire to get the story out for the sake of the story. Just want to let readers know I tried, and what kind of character we are dealing with here. — Tiffany Edwards Hunt
