I'm posting this because I once met the victim. She and her young daughter would hitchhike all over the island. Every time I pass the place where she was killed, I wonder who did it, and if they are still out there somewhere. It was such a senseless horrible crime, and she was a gentle soul.
KIHEI, Maui » Dressed almost always in white, Myrna Siegel traveled on religious adventures to dozens of countries from Central America to the Middle East, despite obstacles and dangers.
"If she wasn't supposed to go somewhere, that's where she went," said her daughter, Aurora Siegel, who traveled with her as a child.
Aurora Siegel said the irony is that her mother, known as "Sky Blue," was killed on the low-crime island of Maui.
On the morning of Sept. 16, 1987, the body of 51-year-old Myrna Siegel was found by two fishermen in a beach gully on a vacant lot near the Koa Lagoon condominium in south Maui.
Sheets of gospel music she composed were found near the body.
Police detectives said she had been brutally raped and beaten.
