Police investigating Ewa Beach murder


Attacked in her own home and unable to speak. That’s how 21-year-old Ricky Agno found his grandmother, 63-year-old Gloria Agno, on Jan. 30.

Ricky lives in another home, but on the same property on Ahona Street in Ewa Beach. He says he didn’t hear any commotion last week.

“Noticed never seen my grandma one whole day. So went to the window by the room, called my grandma’s phone, thought I heard it vibrate on the wall. Called her and she didn’t answer, so I opened the window and saw my grandma on the ground. So I hopped through and called 911,” said Ricky.

According to Ricky, a bloody hammer was found inside his grandmother’s room — a weapon that may have been used against Gloria.

“She had a hole. You could see her skull and a pool of blood,” said Ricky.

Ricky says what’s strange is that the suspect didn’t take anything from his grandmother’s room.

“Is that suspicious?” KHON2 asked.

“Yeah. If you were to do that, you’d at least take something. But nothing was taken,” said Ricky.

On Feb. 6, Gloria was pronounced dead at the hospital. Ricky says he doesn’t know why anyone would do this.

“She gets along with everybody here. Even the neighbors. I don’t know anybody that would do that,” said Ricky.

One man KHON2 spoke to says Gloria was a good neighbor who always thought of others.

“She was a very nice person,” said neighbor Jose Luna. “And she cooks something, give us too. And in return, I have to cook something. I have to give them, too, in return.”

Luna has lived on Ahona Street for years and visited the family on Friday.

“It’s a shock to all our neighbors and to all of the community of Ewa Beach,” said Luna.

As for Ricky and his family, they’re still searching for answers.

“I hope they catch the guy,” said Ricky.

Honolulu police have opened a murder investigation. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call police.
