Police had still not questioned a 31-year-old man described as a “;person of interest”; yesterday in the death of a 25-year-old tourist in Waikiki.

Aaron M. Susa remained in the hospital yesterday after he was taken into custody Monday evening, police spokesman Maj. Clayton Kau said.

Susa complained of feeling ill after he was found in bushes near Lunalilo and Liholiho streets in Makiki on Monday night. Police found Susa after receiving a call about a suspicious man in the area.
