Ewa Beach grandmother dies after brutal attack

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It was vicious attack. 63-year old Gloria Agno was beaten with a hammer and stabbed in the head in her Ewa Beach home.

"I thought maybe she fell or maybe she had (an) illness or something. I didn't think that … somebody attacked her," says her daughter-in-law Sharyl Agno.

Her family lives in a house in the front of the property on Ahona Street. Agno lived in a separate house in the back of the property. They suspect, she was killed sometime during the day on Thursday, January 29. When everyone was at work, and the grandkids were at school.

"We were wondering where she is," says Sharyl, "She's usually around here and walking around doing stuff."

Worried, they sent her 21-year old grandson to check on her.

"(He) knocked on the door, no answer, so he called," says Sharyl, "She still wasn't responding, so he opened the window and went through the window and found her on the ground."

The Ewa Beach grandma lay in a pool of blood for more than a day. She was conscious, but unable to talk or move. She was in the Intensive Care Unit at the Queen's Medical Center for almost a week. Early Friday morning... she died.

Family members say she must have known her attacker, because there were no signs of break-in but there are signs that the 63-year old tried to fight back.

Honolulu police homicide detectives now have the case. So far, there have been no arrests.
