We're starting to run out of ways to introduce these stories about the murder count in SF, so we're going with a clip of "Miss Murder" by AFI, above.
So here's the latest: Two more bodies were found today. One person was found shot to death in the head around 9:30 last night near Monster Park, and this morning, a woman walking in Golden Gate Park saw a dead body in a grove of eucalyptus trees. The Golden Gate Park victim appeared to be a homeless person and the scene was described as "kind of a mess," in an earlier SFGate news story whose link we cannot find now. (Here's our commenters discussing it too.)
Meanwhile, remember the Canadian Navy lieutenant killed by a hit-and-run driver by the Ferry Building a few weeks ago? The cops have a description of the car: a late 80s-model silver or gray, four-door Benz. which should have extensive damage on the left front and passenger door side. The accident took place around 1:50 a.m. on August 18. and the mayor's office is offering a $10,000 reward for info -- so if you have any, call SFPD Inspector Jim Custer at (415) 553-9516 or Inspector Dean Taylor at (415) 575-4444.
