It is believed that on the evening of Monday, May 19, 1997 Mr. Sean A. Burgado was murdered shortly after he arrived home at around 9 PM. He had been beaten and shot through the chest. Sean was 27 years old when he died.
Apparently Sean had been dead two days before his body was found. When Sean did not report to work at the Hilo Anuenue Restoration Elderly Care Center in Hilo, Hawaii, his employer called a neighbor to see why he had not shown up for work. The neighbor went to check on Sean and upon getting no response, opened the door and found Sean dead with his work uniform on. Sean lived alone in his studio apartment located at 260 B Malaai Street in Hilo.
Since Sean was one to lock his doors, and it appeared that the assailant(s) did not use forced entry. It is believed that shortly after he arrived home suspect(s) came to the door.
Sean had been employed at the Hilo Anuenue Restoration Elderly Care Center in their cafeteria as a baker. He was just a few weeks short of his one year anniversary at the time of his death. Previously he had worked at Lanky's Pastry baking cakes and breads for many years.
