Police hope to crack cold-case homicide

Police are seeking the public’s assistance with identifying a subject who might have information regarding an unsolved homicide from almost 22 years ago.

Detectives continue to follow up on newly developed leads in the murder of 27-year-old Sean Burgado, whose body was found May 21, 1997, in his home on Malaai Road in upper Waiakea Uka.

Detectives recently received information about a male who might have been seen near a residence on Malaai Road sometime in the latter part of May 1997 and who might have been accompanied by two other unidentified individuals.

A drawing was prepared by a forensic artist and reportedly depicts the likeness of the individual as he appeared in 1997.

Police are asking anyone who might recognize the male in the composite sketch to contact Detective Derek Morimoto at 961-2380 or Derek.Morimoto@hawaiicounty.gov. Those who prefer anonymity can call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
