HONOLULU (KHNL) - There's still no arrest in the murder of a young woman whose nude body was discovered in a Kalihi alley this week.  But sources say homicide investigators have questioned a person of interest, who was later arrested on an unrelated warrant.
An autopsy showed Iris Kaikana-Rodrigues, 18, died from strangulation.  A Winant Street resident found the body in an alley along the Kamehameha Homes housing project Monday morning.
Police say the victim was at a party with friends the previous night.
Devastated family members and friends created a memorial near the site Tuesday.
If you have any information about this case, call police.
