Insane Man Escapes Mental Hospital In Hawaii, Charters Plane To Larger Island, Then Flies To California

NY Times- Around 9 a.m. Sunday, a man who called himself Bill walked out of his home in Kaneohe, Hawaii, and took a cab to the airport. He chartered a flight from Oahu to Maui, then flew from Maui to San Jose, Calif., where he landed at 7:30 p.m. local time. The journey was uneventful.

But there was a problem. “Bill” was actually an alias used by Randall Saito, whom prosecutors described as a pathological predator. Home was the Hawaii State Hospital, a psychiatric facility where Mr. Saito, 59, had been held for more than 35 years after being acquitted of murder by reason of insanity. He should not have been able to leave the hospital grounds unaccompanied, much less book a plane ticket online, clear airport security and fly 2,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean.

“They’ll never find him,” a hospital employee told KHNL, an NBC affiliate in Honolulu.

But they did, three days later, after the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department received a tip “from an alert taxi cab driver,” the department said in a statement. Around 10:30 a.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, sheriff’s deputies arrested Mr. Saito in Stockton, Calif., more than 75 miles by road from the San Jose airport.

It was not clear on Wednesday how he had managed to escape, where he had gotten the money to buy plane tickets, or how he had made it through airport security under a fake name. Ms. Yu said those questions were being investigated.

Terrific. Just what we needed. A serial killer, stuck for the last 35 years in a mental ward, managed to walk right out the doors, charter a plane, and then fly commercial to sunny California. The guy probably went wine tasting and took some surfing lessons before some cab driver miraculously connected the dots. How the fuck does this happen? I can understand prison escapes where guys dig holes and Shawshank their way out. That’s sneaky and determined because prison is hell. But an insane guy, walking out the front door in the middle of the day, and taking 2 flights? It can’t be that easy. Again, how?

Mr. Saito was known within the hospital as a skilled manipulator, according to Hawaii News Now. Documents from 1993, when he requested a conditional release, reveal that he had had sex with at least three hospital employees and obtained contraband, including pornographic materials.

No further questions. Dude has a great dick. Maybe the best dick in the hospital. He’s been hitting homers with the nursing staff for 35 years. Probably has a rotating bed in his room, mirrors on the ceiling, and arm restraints covered in fur. I’m sure his harem bought him his flights and seduced the guards while he sauntered into the sunlight in a fresh new suit. Sorta makes you wonder why he left Hawaii, since it seems he’d built up quite a nice team of sexual partners. Sure, the ladies in California are lovelier than Christmas morning, but he should have stayed on the islands, hopping from one beach pipe to the next. I suppose the grass is always greener, especially for a committed murderer.
