Hannon, however, was released on March 10, online records show. According to KITV, he was released because of "insufficient ground to file a complaint." Baron remains in jail with no bail set, according to online records.

The men were wanted in connection to a homicide case in Hawaii Loa Ridge, where a 73-year-old man was found decomposing in a bathbut and encased in a mixture of cement and coffee, according to KITV.

Honolulu police found the body March 8. LAPD investigators say Baron and Hannon were living in the home for an unknown amount of time after committing the murder, KITV reports.

Investigators say the two men lived in the home and spent the man's money until neighbors began complaining about a decaying smell. Police believe the suspects covered the man in concrete and coffee to cover up the smell, according to KITV.
