Catherine Walker, an Army wife, was found dead in her Hawaii home, according to a news report by MS News Now. Authorities say Catherine Walker, 38, was stabbed to death on Saturday, November 22, 2014.
The woman’s body was discovered by her 36-year-old husband, Michael Walker, a soldier who lives on the military base. Police responded to the crime scene on Morishige Lane at around 6:30 a.m., at the Aliamanu Military Reservation in Honolulu, where they found the body of a white middle-aged female with stab wounds to the neck and torso area of the body. The woman, who was identified as Catherine Walker, was already deceased.
Catherine Walker’s body was transported to the coroner’s office, where they made the determination that she died from stab wounds to the body.
The police report indicates that the victim’s car had been broken into five days earlier, and her husband’s wallet was missing. Police in Hawaii stated that the crime was not a random act, and is classified as a homicide. Law enforcement officials have a person of interest in the case, according to the Daily Mail. Spokesperson Chris Grey of the Army Criminal Investigation Command released the following statement to the media.
“We are aggressively pursuing all information and leads involving this tragic death. I can confirm that we have a person of interest in this case who our agents are taking a very hard look at, but it’s important to point out that we continue to look at all possibilities and evidence in order to conduct a complete and thorough investigation.”
Her distraught friends and family say that she was a wonderful and loving person who will truly be missed. Catherine and Michael Walker did not have children together. Her husband is listed as an Army medic, according to his social media page.
Most military bases advertise that their communities are gated and safe for military families to live without fear. However, this is not always the case. One highly-publicized murder took place in the 1980s, where military soldier Chris Brown was stabbed to death in a housing unit in Hawaii. The killer was identified as Marine soldier Rocky Jackson. Jackson was convicted and served to 20 years in prison for the murder. Chris Brown’s wife, Kathy Brown, was also arrested and charged with conspiracy. The true-story movie A Matter Of Justice is based on that tragic case. The popular but cancelled Lifetime Television show Army Wives depicted life on military bases, according to a previous Inquisitr article.
