Search on for escaped psychiatric patient who flew to Maui


HONOLULU — Hawaii authorities were searching Tuesday for a man described by a prosecutor as fitting the profile of a serial killer who escaped from the state’s psychiatric hospital outside Honolulu and flew to Maui. Randall Saito, who was found not guilty of a 1979 murder by reason of insanity, left Hawaii State Hospital Sunday. Maui County police said the 59-year-old Saito flew to Maui, but they didn’t know where he was. Tashima warned people not to approach Saito, saying there’s a concern he could commit the same “very heinous and violent offence” again. Saito was committed to the hospital in 1981 after being acquitted by reason of insanity of the murder of Sandra Yamashiro.
