In a stunning revelation that has sent shockwaves through Hawaii, a recent report alleges that Hawaiian Electric removed evidence from the scene of a devastating blaze. Here’s an in-depth look at the circumstances surrounding the incident and its implications.
Hawaiian Electric Accused of Tampering with Evidence
Hawaiian Electric, one of the largest utility providers in the state, is now under scrutiny following allegations that the company removed evidence from the site of the Lahaina fire. The details were unveiled in documents obtained by the Washington Post, raising serious questions about the company’s role and its handling of the aftermath.

The raging inferno killed at least 115 people, with hundreds more still unaccounted for, according to official sources. Many locals and other investigative journalists believe that they aren’t being honest about the true death toll.

Removal of Evidence
According to the documents, Hawaiian Electric representatives allegedly removed vital evidence from the scene, hindering the ongoing investigation. This evidence could have been crucial in determining the cause of the fire and understanding if any negligence or misconduct had occurred.
The evidence removed included power lines, fallen poles, transformers, and conductors. The act of tampering with a crime or accident scene is taken very seriously, and the allegations may have severe legal implications for the company. Hawaiian Electric is already facing at least eight lawsuits related to the fire.
The allegations against Hawaiian Electric are a major cause for concern and reflect a broader issue of corporate responsibility and accountability. The incident serves as a stark reminder that even prominent and established organizations must adhere to the rule of law and act with integrity.
