Myles Yukata Fukunaga was a Japanese-American from Honolulu, Hawaii. In 1928, he kidnapped and murdered George Gill Jamieson, the 10-year-old son of a local banker.
Subsequent to the murder, he demanded a $10,000 ransom. Before the body of the victim was found, the Hawaiian Trust Company offered a reward of $5,000 with no questions asked. Fukunaga eventually received $4,000 in $5 bills from the victim's father before he was arrested.
