The Examiner writes that the autopsy report investigating the death of 22-year-old visiting German student Nils Yannick Linke, who was killed in a hit and run in August, was recently released. His death was determined to be the result of vehicular homicide, and 36-year-old Josh Calder, who allegedly ran him over, then fled the scene after switching seats with his girlfriend, is scheduled to appear in court this week to discuss the report.
Linke had been riding a borrowed bicycle on his way to a party at Divisadero and McAllister streets when he was struck from behind. He died from blunt-force injuries to his head and was not wearing a helmet. It was unlikely Linke was aware of the dangers of Masonic Avenue.
