Police are investigating the apparent murder of a woman in her 50s by her foster son in Waimanalo.

Samson Kaonohi, who said he is the victim's uncle, said family told him a 16-year-old boy apparently stabbed the woman to death in her home near Sherwoods Beach in Waimanalo on Saturday around 8:15 a.m. He said the boy was the woman's foster child.

Family identified the woman as Jolyn Kipapa, the wife of a caretaker at the park. They said she was a foster mother to many children for years.

Police did not disclose any information at the scene, but police said a suspect has been apprehended.

I went through there this morning with my car video running and I'll send it in. It looked like a car accident as it usually does when police block off a road. I guess it was maybe this case. It may take some time to get it processed and if I can't send it in to HSA, I'll post it on my You Tube account: WhitePersian2011

As I was going toward Waimanalo on Kalanianaole Highway, at about Waimanalo Beach, before the first 7-11, which is adjacent to Waimanalo Beach, a blue and white detoured cars into Waimanalo itself. As I came out and back onto Kalanianaole Highway, a City Ambulance came up behind me, honking their horn wanting to pass, so I pulled over and let the ambulance pass. I did not check to the time stamp on the video taken on my digital camera, however I'm thinking the time was about right that this indeed was what was happening. If I had recorded this video on my iPhone as I sometimes do, it would be easier to get it up to The Internet. As it is, I am not a film editor, just a cinematographer/director/producer/writer/editor in my crusade lol so I can't get it from my digital camera to HSA immediately. I would of course if I was paid for it lol.

I am not bad. Nobody is. Unless one is Adolph Hitler and I think your ancestors came from Japan, which WAS on Hitler's side during World War Two. We hope Obama will not trigger World War a Three, however we never know, with some of the high tension running throughout the Middle East. Personally I am glad that China is in town doing the war games. If anything, the next war will be the one that ends all wars, so we don't want North Korea "get mad at us".

By the way this tragedy was a result of a personal war in that family. My deepest condolences to the deceased. It takes two to fight, especially to the death. So if one of the parties was "street smart" enough to say "let's bygones be bygones", the lady would not be in Heaven.

HonoluluHawaii, it is racist sarcastic HA0LE (the Hawaiian language did no distinguish singular vs. plural, just like the English don't when using words like sheep) like you who are bad just like the majority of Krauts in Germany who went along with Hitler's evil genocide. You HA0LE wonder why your kids get beat up by Hawaiians and other locals? The answer is simple, they mouth off like you do and emulate your racist speech.

Would u believe I am a fourth generation Japanese-American? I can understand half of what tourists from Japan say because I went to Fort Gakuen from Kindergarten to 9th grade, graduated from Japanese School and can write my name in Kanji. I am fluent in hiragana. Not in katakana and kanji though. It's because my grandmother raised me from birth to kindergarten that I can speak Japanese to a reasonable degree. Had I not been tainted by public school Pidgin English at Kalakaua Intermediate School and Farrington High School, I may speak ONLY Japanese, because of my grandmother who passed away in 1996 at age 93.

By the way, maybe my video of it was not the murder at all. However as we all do, we rubber neck whenever we see Police and Fire at a scene. Now, I did not see an ambulance until it pulled up RIGHT BEHIND ME, HONKED ITS HORN AND I HAD TO CROSSOVER TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET TO LET IT PASS. I JUST HAPPENED TO BE AT THE WRONG PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. IF THE HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER DID NOT HAVE A BREAKING NEWS E-MAIL APP THAT IT SENDS OUT TO ALL SUBSCRIBERS I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS. LET US DO THIS: SHUT DOWN ALL NEWSPAPERS SO NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW IF A HURRICANE IS HEADED TO OUR ISLANDS AND WE ALL PERISH FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER !!!!!!!!! SEND AN E-MAIL TO ROB SHIKINA TO ASK HIM WHAT HAPPENED, NOT ME, I NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL WORK FOR ANY PRINT OR OTHER MEDIA !!!!! SINCERELY YOURS, WALTER CRONKITE. P.S. DID YOUR UNCLE BOMB PEARL HARBOR???

It's so sad that when someone shows you the right path in life she gets snubbed and killed by some punk kid. I wonder if the teen had a psychological propensity for violent behavior prior to him being placed in a foster home. Condolence to her and her ohana.

I don't know what happened, just that this woman and her husband opened their home to many children in need of help. May God bless this 'ohana at this awful time.

It is no wonder that the foster parent program has a dearth of volunteers. This is a case that has gotten media spotlight, but this pattern is all too common for people who act as foster parents. I know of another foster parent couple --- the wife is a part Hawaiian who has a master's degree in public administration and the husband is a judge --- who opened up their house and hearts and took in a foster child, only to get stabbed with a knife by the foster child.

Before the public goes on a speculative guessing game as to who is referred to in my comment, I should have said that the husband is a FORMER judge.

The pic taken by Rob does not look familiar to me. So after all maybe it was just a coincidence that the ambulance passed by me this morning. I suppose the city medical examiner would pick up a body if said body was deceased at a scene of a crime. Omg sorry i woke up a few cob webs.
