Federal agents from the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service reviewed security video from Mineta San Jose International Airport on Tuesday afternoon looking for footage of a dangerous man who escaped a mental health facility in Hawaii and flew to California, airport officials said Wednesday.

Randall Toshio Saito, 59, escaped from the Hawaii State Hospital on Oahu around 9 a.m. Sunday, caught a flight to Maui and then flew to California, according to Maui police.

Wayne Tashima, a Honolulu prosecutor, called Saito a “dangerous” man who committed a gruesome homicide in 1979, killing a woman and leaving her body in the trunk of a vehicle.

The crime scene was discovered because of blood dripping out of the trunk, Tashima said.
