I haven't seen this story anywhere on SFGate yet.

You think they will report something as routine as a murder in SF? They are also under counting.

It was up for about an hour on the main page this morning but in small print. Then, as always, it was moved to the Bay Area section and pushed all the way to the bottom of the page. Don't scare the tourists!

Yeah, it wasn't Tuesday morning either. It was at approximately 11pm on Monday evening. The local news outlets didn't report on it until the following morning.

I was able to see the aftermath from my apartment window. It's disturbing because I get off the bus at McAllister and Gough all the time.
