Jonathan Fraser was only 21 years old when he vanished. Jonathan was born on May 11, 1995.
On November 15, 2015, at 8:00 pm, Jonathan and his friend, Caleb Miske got into a car accident. The two collided with a pickup at the intersection of Kaneohe Bay Drive and Makalani Street when a northbound vehicle was making a left turn. While there were many speculations that Jonathan was the driver it was later revealed that Caleb was the driver. Caleb sustained critical injuries from the accident which resulted in over 4 months in the hospital. On March 12, 2016, Caleb died from his injuries. Caleb’s father, Michael had publicly blamed Jonathan for his son’s death.
The day Jonathan went missing. On July 30, 2016, Jonathan was last seen at his apartment located in the 6200 block of Keokea Place in the Hawaii Kai complex by his girlfriend, Ashley around 9:30 am that morning. Several days later on August 8, 2016, Jonathan’s gray 1994 two-door Honda hatchback with Hawaii license plate SXC021 was located at the intersection of Summer Street and Kuliouou road. Many in Jonathan’s circle including his girlfriend, believe that Jonathan wouldn’t just leave them without warning or communicating his plans.
An arrest is made. On August 10, 2017, Caleb’s father, Michael J. Miske Jr.’s 37.5-foot Boston Whaler model 370 Outrage boat was searched. Miske nicknamed the boat “Painkiller”. The purpose of the search was to find information relating to Jonathan’s disappearance. While authorities did obtain several pieces of evidence such as SD cards, marine navigation systems, knives, and more. It remains unknown how much of the evidence found on the boat is related to Jonathan’s case.
On July 8, 2020, Michael J Miske Jr. and other known associates involved in “Miske Enterprises” were arrested by federal agents. Michael is believed to be the leader of this group. Many believe that Miske used his pest control business as a front for his criminal endeavors including drug trafficking, murder-for-hire, robbery, extortion, money-laundering, abduction, and bank fraud.
Where the case stands today. Jonathan’s case remains unsolved. However, while no remains have ever been discovered, it is believed that Jonathan was abducted and subsequently murdered. Foul play is suspected in Jonathan’s case. Currently, Miske awaits trial and if convicted could face the death penalty.
