Myles Yotaka Fukunaga
“Your son has been kidnapped for ransom!” Gill Jamieson, 10, son of Frederick W Jamieson, vice president of the Hawaiian Trust Company, was kidnapped and held for ransom of $10,000 under the threat of death. Myles Fukunaga was apprehended a few days later after the serial numbers on the ransom money were traced.
About one hour after picking him up, Fukunaga killed the boy; he later confessed to the murder. Fukunaga was convicted and sentenced to hang despite the fact that the entire trial lasted less than a week, his court-appointed attorneys called no witnesses on his behalf, and concerns about Fukunaga’s sanity were never resolved.
