The body of the TGI Friday's manager--whose was found earlier this week by an employee inside the restaurant, making this San Mateo's first homicide since 2006--was identified as Douglas Castello, 36, "a mild-mannered guy with an infectious laugh." Reports claim that he was bludgeoned to death by a "blunt force type object." He was reportedly heading down the road toward marriage just before his death, "shopping for a promise ring in two weeks and had already bought tickets for an April cruise in Mexico," according to his choked-up girlfriend, Laura Johnson, 45.
But police haven't a clue as to the culprits, the motive, or...anything. Do you? It seem that the San Mateo Police Department wants anyone who was at TGI Friday's restaurant early Monday and saw anything to call the investigations unit, (650) 522-7650, or the witness hot line, (650) 522-7676.
