Search after killer's escape from Hawaii hospital spurs call for security review

December 1, 2017

During a search of rooms at Hawaii State Hospital prompted by the recent escape of a killer, a patient was caught with a fake driver's license, according to an article on the Hawaii News Now website.

Randall Saito slipped away from the hospital on Nov. 12, got a taxi to the airport and took a charter plane to Maui. From there, he caught a flight to California, where he landed before State Hospital officials had reported him missing, the article said.

The fake ID found during a recent search apparently belonged to a man who was committed to the State Hospital after being acquitted of murder.

The Health Department met with officials from the Department of Public Safety and are planning a tour of OCCC to evaluate internal and safety protocols.
