Police plan to cremate five bodies being held at the Maui County morgue unless relatives or friends step forward to claim the remains.
Police said the remains are of people who died in unattended deaths, including:
* Patricia Bruce, about 45 years old, a Caucasian woman described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 232 pounds. She has a black tattoo on her left fourth finger, a rose tattoo on her right ankle and a black tattoo on her left lower leg. She died in May.

He has a green and black tattoo of a four-leaf clover on his upper left chest, a multicolored tattoo of a ram and mountain on his upper left arm and a Tazmanian devil tattoo on his left forearm.

If the remains aren’t claimed by relatives, friends, representatives of a fraternal society that the dead person belonged to or any other legal party, the bodies will be cremated within 90 days or shortly afterward, police said.
Anyone wishing to claim any of the remains may call police Capt. John Kaupalolo at 244-6435.
