Dana Ireland

In 1991, a visitor to Hawaii, Dana Ireland, was kidnapped, raped and murdered. The man who left his DNA, bite-mark and T-shirt at the crime has neither been arrested nor identified. He walks the land, free to kill again. The three local men convicted of Dana’s murder are innocent; they had nothing to do with this shocking crime.

On December 24th, 1991, about 5:00 pm, 23 year-old Dana Ireland was riding her bicycle on the Big Island of Hawaii. She was almost to her parents’ rental house where the Ireland family was going to have Christmas Eve dinner. In a split-second everything changed. A motor vehicle approached her from behind and moved into the left on-coming lane as if to give the cyclist plenty of room. Tire tracks left at the scene indicate that when the vehicle was close to her, the driver accelerated and swerved into Dana, crushing her and the bicycle. A local resident, Anna Sherrell, was the first to discover the collision. She called emergency services at 5:25 pm.

The Hawaii state motto is, “The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.” Righteousness includes Justice. Justice for Dana demands that her killer be captured and the three wrongfully convicted men be exonerated.

The video, “Who Killed Dana Ireland? – Part 1 of JUSTICE FOR DANA, a presentation by Judges for Justice, is currently in editing and will be released Q1-Q2 of 2018.
