HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Police Department is renewing their call for tips in a 1986 cold case.
It’s been more than 35 years since 21-year-old Gregory M. Yamada was found dead on what was once “Canehaul Road” beneath the H-1 Freeway and Waikele Overpass.
He was found on Sept. 8, 1986. Police investigators at the time determined Yamada was beaten and thrown over the side of the freeway.
Hours later around 6 p.m. that same day, an unidentified man was seen on surveillance camera using Yamada’s ATM card at the Waianae branch of Honolulu Federal Savings and Loan.
Police recently published the images hoping it will lead to breakthrough tips in the case.
