Details of Disappearance
Suzuki was last seen at 5:00 p.m. on July 6, 1985, outside of the Rosalie Woodson Institute of Dance in Aiea, Hawaii, where she was employed as a part-time children's dance instructor. She was a student at the University of Hawaii at the time of her disappearance. Foul play is suspected in Suzuki's disappearance. Some blood evidence was found in the bathroom of the dance school and police suspect that an acquaintance of Suzuki's, a fellow dance instructor, was involved in her case. He failed a polygraph test shortly after her disappearance but was never charged for lack of evidence. A prosecutor attempted to reopen Suzuki's case in 1993, but it remains unsolved. Her family held a memorial service for her in 1997, on the 12th anniversary of her disappearance.

His name is on the internet but not in mainstream media that I can find so I won't name him here. (I can't describe how small this Island is and how so many people know each other...)Police suspected a photographer who worked at the dance studio and searched the area near his home, but without a body and no substantial evidence the investigation went cold.
Video with interview of family member at link. Her Mother has passed on and her Father is now 89. What touched me was that for years they left the porch light on at night in case "their baby" came home.
Bumping for Diane and wondering if any potential poi, might have moved to another state or country?
Wow, what a tragic story. Couldn't Hawaii have called a Grand Jury, since they had a POI, blood evidence, & the failed poly? It seems like more evidence than some cases have.
Her poor family, waiting all these years & still no answers...

There's a reddit post on Diane Suzuki. It mentions the POI and a search done on the POIs' father's property about five years after her disappearance. Given what was researched and written in that post, the POI must have been involved.
