Farmer found dead in Cape Kyan waters

Date Posted: 2011-05-26

The call to Itoman City Police came from Shigenobu Yamashiro’s family, telling them “our father went shell collecting to the Cape Kyan seashore, and he has not returned.”

Hours later, Itoman City Police, the 11th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters and a firefighters rescue team searching the Cape Kyan area found the 61-year-old farmer laying on his stomach on a reef. The body was in about two meters deep water about 300 meters west of Cape Kyan.

Yamashiro, a farmer living in Itoman City’s Itosu district, was confirmed dead at the scene. Yamashiro, says 11th Regional Coast Guard headquarters, was last seen by a friend as he was collecting shells on the reef. Itoman City Police say they’re investigating the cause of Yamashiro’s death with a judicial autopsy.
