WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Police sources say Alex Gonzales and Bryan Suitt may have been romantically involved when Suitt allegedly stabbed Gonzales multiple times, killing him. His body was then dismembered and dumped near Mililani Cemetery.
According to the sources, neighbors saw the two men on several occasions 'talking story' on the balcony of a condo above the Wailana Coffee House in Waikiki. Suitt was renting the condo for six months.
On August 23rd, neighbors complained about a foul odor coming from the unit. The next day, the same neighbors smelled chlorine.
Shortly after that report was made, Suitt was seen on Walmart surveillance video purchasing a saw. According to court records that are still sealed, a saw was used to dismember Gonzales' body.
Suitt was also seen on Walmart surveillance video purchasing a suitcase. A similar suitcase was found with flesh in it. Sources say, DNA linked the flesh to Alex Gonzales.
"You never expect that," says a neighbor who only wanted to be called, 'Mark', "Murder, wow, right in the building."
On October 26th, Honolulu Police detectives executed a search warrant on the condo. Blood was reportedly found in various areas, including the refrigerator.
The Wailana at Waikiki complex left notes for all the residents Tuesday. The note said HPD asked the managers to withhold information on the police activity in the building until after an arrest was made. The note also said the crime was isolated and that the complex is a safe place to live.
Suitt was arrested by U.S. Marshals at his mother's home in California Monday afternoon. He is charged with Murder.
It's unclear when he will be returning to Hawaii. His first extradition hearing was Wednesday morning, but no ruling was made. A judge is prohibiting the media from showing the suspect's face.
His next extradition hearing set for Thursday afternoon.
