Manoa murder mystery

October 5, 2010 By Alice

While renovating a home at 3156 Oahu Avenue, Manoa, Hawaii, construction workers found human remains buried in dirt under a concrete slab. Renovation can indeed lead to surprises. This is the same way that ultimately Elizabeth Heath was found.

Police told Hawaii News Now that the remains belonged to a man who had been shot in the head several times. They believe that the remains have been there since the 1970s.

The preliminary investigation results:

the man was Caucasian
between 30 and 55 years old when he was killed
medium build
between 54″ and 56″
dressed in Levis panatela brand pants, a dark colored shirt, and was wearing white tube socks with blue trim.
There are two structures on the property. The home in front is divided into three rental units. There is a cottage in back. The remains were found under a slab near that cottage. Tenants in the front house said that the owner bought the property just a few years ago. Police are searching records to find out who lived in the home when the body was buried.

Police are asking anyone who may know something about the case, or who remembers a missing person in the 70s fitting the description of the deceased, to please call them. Their contact information is here. The article is here.

Construction crew unearths Manoa murder mystery

MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) Construction workers have unearthed a murder mystery in Manoa.

There were renovating a home at 3156 Oahu Avenue when they found human remains buried in dirt under a concrete slab.

Police tell Hawaii News Now the remains belonged to a man who had been shot in the head several times. They believe the remains have been there since the 1970s.

The preliminary investigation indicates the man was Caucasian and between 30 and 55 years old when he was killed. He had a medium build and was between 5'4" and 5'6".

The deceased was clad in Levis panatela brand pants, a dark colored shirt, and was wearing white tube socks with blue trim.

There are two structures on the property. The home in front is divided into three rental units. There is a cottage in back. The remains were found under a slab near the cottage.

Tenants in the front house tell us the owner bought the property just a few years ago. Police are searching records to find out who lived in the home when the body was buried.

"There's no statute of limitations on murder. And so yes, something that happened 30 years ago, if this is a homicide, definitely, if we have information, we can prosecute," said Kim Buffett of Crimestoppers.

"I just hope that whoever's family member that is that family gets notified and maybe (it will bring) some peace to the family," said Stephanie Melchi, a tenant in the front house.

Police are asking anyone who may know something about the case, or who remembers a missing person in the 70's fitting the description of the deceased, to please call them.
