Burning Body Found Near San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A man was found dead in a recycling bin in San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park Friday morning by firefighters responding to a brush fire nearby, and investigators are considering the death suspicious, police said.

KCBS’ Holly Quan Reports:

The man, who has not been identified, was found by firefighters responding to a fire at 4:39 a.m. at the park, located near the intersection of Buena Vista Avenue East and Haight Street, a fire dispatcher said.

While extinguishing the blaze, firefighters found the partially burned body of someone who was already dead, police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

The body was found in a blue recycling bin, which was near tennis courts, police Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.

Homicide inspectors and the arson task force responded to investigate the incident.

Anyone with information about the death is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411.

Arson investigators were also summoned to the scene, the fire dispatcher said.

    The comments I am reading about this around the web are just absolutely horrible. This murdered person was a vibrant, happy hard-working 23 year year old man, a close friend of mine. People who are absolutely devoid of human compassion are running their stupid mouths off about this. THIS is funny to you? I hope you will never have to go through this with one of YOUR family members, you gutless pieces of S***.
