    There's a book written about the club. Here's a short description: Inspired by Florida's famed Mai-Kai restaurant, Bill Sapp and Lee Henry opened the Kahiki Supper Club in 1961. They set out simply to build a nice Polynesian restaurant and ended up establishing the most magnificent one of them all. Patrons lined up for hours to see the celebrities who dined there--everyone from Betty White to Raymond Burr. Outside, two giant Easter Island heads with flames spouting from their topknots stood guard while customers dined in a faux tribal village with thatched huts, palm trees and a towering fireplace moai. One wall featured aquariums of exotic fish and another had windows overlooking a tropical rainforest with periodic thunderstorms. For nearly forty years, the Kahiki was the undisputed center of tiki culture.

    ....the less romantic side of Kahiki's history (multiple robberies, a homicide, a dead Jane Doe, police brutality....

    Image released of mystery woman who died in Columbus in 1999

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Attorney General Mike DeWine and Franklin County Coroner Anahi M. Ortiz, M.D. have released a new artist's depiction of an unidentified woman who died in Franklin County in 1999.

    A forensic artist with the Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) created the likeness of "Jane Doe" at the request of authorities with the Franklin County Coroner's Office.

    The image, which is based on a photograph taken after the woman's death, was designed in an effort to generate tips about her identity. The Jane Doe was found in front of the Kahiki restaurant on East Broad Street on November 28, 1999, and she died at an area hospital the same day.

    It is believed she died of natural causes.

    "This woman's identity has remained a mystery for nearly two decades, but we hope this image will result in some new leads," said Attorney General DeWine. "Someone had to have known her before she died, and perhaps this picture created by our forensic artist will spark someone's recollection of a friend or family member who hasn't been seen for several years."

    “Through collaboration with experts from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, this photo has been released in an attempt to provide a name to a woman who has remained unidentified for close to 20 years,” said Franklin County Coroner Dr. Anahi Ortiz. “My hope is that by releasing this photo, we can provide closure to the family and friends of this woman. As coroner, I take seriously our duty to serve the community of Franklin County and speak for those who cannot.”

    Ohio BCI's Criminal Intelligence Unit also released a public bulletin about the case.

    The woman was 5'7" tall and weighed 140 pounds. She had reddish-brown hair, blue eyes, pierced ears, and small scars on her nose and left cheek. She was wearing a straw hat, blue coat, overalls, blue socks, sunglasses and gray metal earrings.

    Anyone with information on this woman's identity should contact the Franklin County Coroner's Office at 614-525-5290 or the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation at 740-845-2406.
