Stepson questioned but not arrested
The stepson of an Ewa Beach man found dead inside his burned home called police Friday to answer questions, but he was not arrested, police said yesterday.
Police had been searching for Timothy Adarna since Thursday's fire, saying he may be the last person to have seen his stepfather, Robert Ramos, alive.
Witnesses told police they saw Adarna leave Ramos' home on a bicycle shortly after they heard an argument and noticed the fire.
An autopsy showed Ramos died from stab wounds to the neck and fire officials concluded that the fire was intentionally set.
Adarna, who police said is not considered a suspect, called police at 6 p.m. Friday to answer questions, said Sgt. Kim Buffet of CrimeStoppers. She declined to give any more information, saying only that Adarna was not arrested and that the case remains under investigation.
