Police search for suspect in fatal Kailua stabbing

By Gregg K. Kakesako

LAST UPDATED: 07:30 p.m. HST, Jan 14, 2014

Honolulu homicide detectives are investigating the second murder case this week with the death of a homeless man found outside of a Kailua restaurant late last night with multiple stab wounds.

Emergency Medical Services said paramedics treated and transported a man in his 50s from Uluniu Street near Cinnamon's Restaurant in extremely critical condition to the hospital around 11:45 p.m. He died at the hospital.

No suspects have been arrested.

However, police are looking for a white male, described as having a slim build and wearing "dark clothing."

The victim was believed to have been sleeping in an area near the Kailua restaurant.

The police department Specialized Services Division used its dogs to sweep the Kailua neighborhood early this morning to try to find a suspect.

In Oahu's first murder investigation of the year, police are seeking two suspects in the stabbing death of Marlo Basuel, 42, Sunday night in a Waipahu home.

Paramedics took Basuel from a Kahuanani Street home at 9:48 p.m. Sunday to a hospital in "extremely critical condition." Basuel died at the hospital.

The Medical Examiner's Office said the cause of his death was described as "(loss of blood) due to stab wounds of the torso."

Several people were attending a party at the Waipahu home when the incident occurred.

I lived almost all my life in Kailua. Can't recall stabbings. When my wife and I became interested in Puna on the island of Hawaii as a home we were repeatedly warned about "the wild west." My advice to all Oahuans is to stay right where you are. Mo bettah dat way.

Morning news had the stabbing by the tailor shop. Cinnamon's is in the adjacent building but on the parking lot side, not street side, no where near the tailor shop. Too bad the SA and local news media are too much in a rush to get their information straight.

Gun or knife, this is a violent world we live in. Hopefully your time never comes but defend yourself if you have to.

Granted the world is not as safe as we all would like, but, you can limit the chance of risk by not being out late at night-Nothing good happens after midnight.

Our streets in Kailua get taken over late at night by homeless males. I personally don't feel comfortable walking around after 10pm in downtown Kailua, and yet, we are one block from the police station.

Knives are weapons too. Maybe we should require citizens to register their knives.

Auwe... what a shame. Lived in Kailua in the 80's and 90's and never any problems like this. It was always safe to be out after dark....

Statistically speaking, especially regarding violent crime, the 80s especially and 90s too were a lot more dangerous than today. This goes for Hawaii as well as the US as a whole. So unless Kailua is an statistical anomaly, your perception doesn't match reality.
