Honolulu police have detained two people in connection with a murder investigation after a body was found in a North Shore home Thursday.
Police were called just after 3 p.m. to a home on Ke Iki Road. The address, near Shark’s Cove, is listed as a vacation rental.
Emergency Medical Services pronounced the female victim dead at the scene. She was identified as Telma Boinville.
We’re told tourists who rented the home went inside and found the body. Police say the woman “may have been working at the home” when she was killed.
“The scene is so bad inside the house right now. I’ve been here for almost three hours, and they won’t even let me in the house because it’s so bad,” said Kevin Emery, the victim’s husband.
Officers also found a young girl on the second floor of the home. According to the victim’s family, the 8-year-old had been tied up by the suspects.
“If you guys are one local boy, then you know what it is to be one true local of one community. Somebody just came to my community and tied up my little niece with duct tape and murdered her mother,” said Brian Emery, Kevin Emery’s twin brother. “If you guys want to help me, help find this guy. Not only help find this guy but hold down your community, boys. There’s evil out there. Us soldiers of light need to do what’s right to keep our keiki safe and not let this happen to anybody out there.”
“According to the eyes of my niece… is that she’d seen a couple, a guy and a girl. They fled the scene in her mother’s truck,” Brian Emery said.
Police later located the victim’s vehicle, a gold pickup truck, unoccupied in the Town Center of Mililani parking lot near Walmart.
A male and female were detained nearby, surrounded by dozens of officers.
They were identified as Stephen Brown, 23, and Hailey Dandurand, 20. They were both charged with several counts over the weekend including second degree murder, burglary, and kidnapping. Brown’s bail is set at one million dollars, Dandurand at half-a-million.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
“We’re looking for any witnesses that may have seen anything out of the ordinary, anything involved in the area at the time,” said Deputy Chief John McCarthy.
