Police want to ask man about victim found bound, strangled
Police are looking for a 27-year-old man to question him about the slaying of a 58-year-old man who was bound and strangled last month in his Kapiolani Boulevard apartment.
Sistine Rangamar was seen driving a black Mercury Mountaineer and frequents the Kapiolani, Date Street and McCully areas, police said.
Ted Hiroshi Arifuku was found dead Jan. 15, lying face down with his hands tied behind his back. The Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death a homicide.
A detective handling the case said Rangamar might be able to provide information concerning the murder.
Rangamar, also known as Paco, is also wanted on a traffic warrant.
He is described as having brown eyes, short black hair, and a cut on the left side of his upper lip that causes it to curl. He also has a tattoo on his upper left arm that says "Tarzan" and a tribal band on his right arm.
Police had arrested a 32-year-old transient in connection with Arifuku's death, but he was never charged with the killing and was excluded as a possible suspect in the case. He has been charged for unrelated crimes.
Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cell phone.
