SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Crime scene investigators were back on the scene of last week’s mass murder in San Francisco’s Ingleside District, collecting evidence on Friday.

Two men and three women were found dead at the home on Howth Street near City College of San Francisco on March 23. The men killed have been identified as 65-year-old Hua Shun Lei and 32-year-old Vincent Lei. The women who died have been identified as 62-year-old Wan Yi Xu, 30-year-old Chia Huei Chu and 37-year-old Ying Xue Lei.

KCBS’ Doug Sovern Reports:

35-year-old Binh Thai Luc is in custody in connection with the grisly killings.

On Friday, along with the investigators, members of the Chinese community prayed outside the home. There is also a growing shrine on the sidewalk outside, with flowers, incense, rice and fruit. Leon, a leader of the local Buddhist community, prayed to mark one week since the murders.

“Traditionally (in the Chinese community), seven days is where the spirits are seeking for guardians,” he said. “We’ll actually guide the disruptive souls to heaven.”

He said there is all sorts of speculation in the community about why the suspect committed the murders, including gambling, greed and robbery, but no one is jumping to conclusions.

“People are just waiting,” he said. “The community, particularly the Chinese community, really trusts law enforcement.”

Luc’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 5.

    RE: Terrorism alert: KGB total brainwashing technique

    This message is to inform you that most people are potential terrorists who can commit the same or similar crime as during this massacre in SF or the Virginia Tech massacre where on April 16, 2007, thirty two people were killed and twenty five others were wounded, or during recent massacre of civilians in Afghanistan. Most people around you are potential terrorists because some part of Russian KGB (not Moscow or Putin) uses a brainwashing technique that requires only a few hours and leads to total mind control. After GULAG KGB brainwashing, nearly all people can kill themselves, their children, parents, best friends, and many others. The technique was invented by KGB agents in GULAG labor camps where they experimented with and sacrificed more than 10 million Soviet people.

    I repeat this brainwashing technique requires only a few hours of intimacy. This can be easily achieved due to, for example, prevalent promiscuity and lack of public awareness about this method and KGB people who use such brainwashing. Note that such crimes are nearly impossible to prove, since the brainwashed people either kill themselves or, if they survive, will say only those things that were ordered them to say.

    Please, feel free to forward this message to others.

    They were not innocent victims by no means the police would do well to investigate the dead and only then will they have their evidence
