The Hawai‘i Police Department has launched a new section of its website dedicated to unsolved homicides.

The webpage currently features five cases dating from the 1980s to the early 2000s. Additional cases will added as more information becomes available. People with information pertaining to unsolved homicides may submit tips anonymously on the website by clicking on the “Submit a Tip” button on the front page of the Department’s website.

“Hawai‘i Police would like to remind the public that there is no statute of limitations on murder,” said Police Chief Paul K. Ferreira. “We have staff dedicated solely to working all leads and evidence on these older homicide cases. Our detectives are deeply committed to solving these murders and see it as their solemn duty to bring these killers to justice.”

HPD said its greatest resource in solving homicide cases is information from witnesses, family, friends, and the community. The department invites the public to review the unsolved homicides summaries. Anyone with any information pertaining to any of these cases should email the Unsolved Homicides Division at [email protected] or call Detective Morimoto at (808) 961-2380.

Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at (808) 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Crime Stoppers is a volunteer program run by ordinary citizens who want to keep their community safe. Crime Stoppers does not record calls or subscribe to any Caller ID service. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
