    HI -The Honolulu Strangler (1985-86)*UNSOLVED*

    "Following the discovery of Pesce’s body police arrested the informant on May 9 as the primary suspect. The suspect’s ex-wife and girlfriend described him as a smooth talker. They also provided a potentially incriminating fetish clue, as both recalled engaging in bondage activity, allowing him to tie them up and have sex with their hands bound behind their back. His girlfriend related that on nights after they had fought, he would leave the house, and that these were the same nights as the murders. The suspect lived in Ewa Beach and worked as a mechanic at one of the air freight along Lagoon Drive. Between 8:00p.m. and 3:00a.m. the suspect was interrogated, failed a polygraph test and eventually released.
    In 2005 the suspect died in California or Tennessee."

    I lived in Hawaii during that time- It was a dark time in Paradise.

    There was also a severed Head found in the trash shoot of one of the Downtown Apt buildings around that same time- don't think I ever heard anything about the out come of that.

    I lived there from April 85 to April 88 and I never heard of this one. I did hear of one they thought was maybe a cop in California at the time but never this one. I lived up at Wheeler AFB

    They should at least release the suspects name that died. Heck we might be able to connect some dots if he is guilty. I sure hope also that Tenn police were aware of him!

    While researching information about this forum, I've noticed that it's commonplace to list suspects for SK cases that are unsolved. Because this person who was interviewed was not ever named, perhaps LE ruled him out completely.

    There is a marine base over there, right? I wonder if the perp was not a local and later hit closer to home. It would be interesting to compare "cooling off periods" of other cases and see if it fits for this time frame in Hawaii.

    Murder victim’s brother says revisiting cold case could finally lead to closure

    http://khon2.com/2016/11/15/murder-v...ad-to-closure/

    It’s a dark part of Hawaii’s history that’s hardly talked about.

    Five females murdered on Oahu in the mid-1980s, and police believe it was the work of a serial killer.

    The suspect was never caught, and the case remains open.

    Regina Sakamoto was one of the victims. She was only 17 years old when she disappeared in January 1986.

    “She was late for school that day,” recalled her brother, Omar Sakamoto. “It was in Waipahu. She was sitting at the bus stop in front of Diners in Waipahu.”

    That was the last time anyone saw Regina Sakamoto alive. She was abducted, raped, strangled, and bound. Her body was found floating off Keehi Lagoon.
