Drama in the 'hood

Some craziness was going on in our neighborhood yesterday...investigation in connection to a murder from the 1980's!!

Here's what went down:
Local and federal law enforcement officers found bones during a search of a Haight-Ashbury home Tuesday, but it’s believed that they belong to some kind of animal and not Kevin Collins, a 10-year-old boy who went missing nearly 29 years ago.

San Francisco police executed a search warrant at the home on Masonic Avenue near Page Street, with the FBI and cadaver dogs from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office assisting in the search.
Several bones were turned over to the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office. Police said preliminary assessment of the bones indicated that they are from an animal, but that further analysis is necessary.
After work yesterday, Evie and I walked up to the crime scene. The house was taped off with police tape and about six news trucks were up there.

How crazy that a murder could've happened in our neighborhood many years ago. The story is so sad - a 10 year old boy disappeared. If they did find something in that house, imagine the closure that would bring his parents.

Always something going on in this city!!
