Hawaii : serial killers paradise
The USA's 50th state is beautiful and majestic.Tourists flock to the gorgeous beaches daily. Helicopter tours proudly fly over the lush greenery and fascinating volcanoes. Honeymooners could not ask for a more ideal setting on the ocean.
Over the last 27 years, at least 10 homicides have been documented as the crime of a serial killer. Many other murders that remain unsolved could also fall into this catagory. Police believe there is more than one serial killer lurking about the islands. They are very tight-lipped about these cases because they have never made an arrest or held any suspects. The killers are free and will continue to slaughter innocent people.
Valentines Day, 2007 on the island of Oahu, 22-year-old school teacher Danielle DeMatta went missing on her way to work and was found dead in the waters near a light house close to her home. Her head had been crushed by a deadly blow. Her purse and shoes were found in a plastic bag. The car she was driving mysteriously turned up at her home later. Her boyfriend was reported sleeping the whole day and did not report her missing until later that night. He was not investigated and police said they don't have a clue.
Exactly 2 weeks later, Linda Hannon was found partially clothed laying dead in some shallow water at Kahana Bay. Her head had been split open by vicious blows.
April 7, 2000, Lisa Bissell,38, was found dead in a ditch on Kauai's west side. She had been raped, beaten and her throat cut open. On May 22, a woman who was out in the yard of a house she was taking care of, was attacked. She was raped, her arm broken and stabbed in the chest. She survived because the knife bent after hitting bones in her chest. The attack left her eyes damaged, she could not idenify anyone. And on August 30, Daren Singer was found dead in Paia, Maui. She was beaten beyond recognition, raped, and throat slashed
Over 20 years ago, in 1985 and 1986, five young women were raped and strangled to death. None of these murders were ever solved. Police in most Hawaiian islands have no training for dealing with rape and murder.
