Kalua Memorial Vandalized

A makeshift memorial made for 7-year-old Isabella “Ariel” Kalua was found vandalized in Waimanalo.

WAIMANALO, Hawaii (KITV4) -- A makeshift memorial made for 7-year-old Isabella “Ariel” Kalua was found vandalized in Waimanalo.

Isabella’s biological family is asking the community to help find the culprit. The vandal or vandals ripped down several mementos and tokens from a fence adorned in memory of the missing girl outside her Waimanalo home.

Isabella's biological aunt, Lana Idao, told KITV4 she was notified about the incident early Monday morning.

“Somebody came down and destroyed the fence line took everything down. Ripped it down,” Idao said.

Isabella's adoptive parents, Isaac and Lehua Kalua, were arrested in November 2021 in connection with her disappearance. They have since been charged with second-degree murder and several other charges in relation to the case. Both pleaded “not guilty.”

Honolulu Police investigators believe Isaac and Lehua murdered Isabella in mid-August, a month before they reported her missing.
