Man found in Kihei 'bound with duct tape' in critical condition

KIHEI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Investigators on Maui have opened an attempted murder case after the resident manager of a condominium in Kihei was found unconscious with serious injuries to his head and face.

Officers were called to the Koa Lagoon Rentals at 800 South Kihei Road around 9:30 a.m. on Friday morning, when sources say a co-worker found 59-year-old Alan Gaspar bound with duct tape.

He was taken to the Maui Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition with bleeding & swelling of the brain.

Police say no arrests have been made, and don't yet have any leads into the case.

"It's difficult because of the fact, even though there were neighbors next door, the building is made out of cement and there's no sounds," said Lt. Jayson Rego of the Maui County Police Department. "Even though the neighbors were home, nobody heard anything."

Anyone with information regarding this is asked to come forward and contact the Maui Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division 808-244-6425, or Maui Crime Stoppers 808-242-6966.
