At about 9:15 AM on 10/03/2015 a passerby found the body of Audrey Carey, a young woman visiting San Francisco from Quebec. A few days later, there was a homicide in Marin County that bore similarities to our Golden Gate Park case. Yesterday, three suspects were arrested in Portland, Oregon for the Marin case. These suspects had Audrey Carey’s property in their possession. Based on further investigation, they are also being charged with the robbery and murder of Audrey Carey.
ARREST: AGGRAVATED ASSAULT (DOMESTIC VIOLENCE)
10/03/2015 9:30 PM
Clement & 19th
The suspect became angry at his girlfriend and smashed her in the head with a grocery bag that contained a glass jar. This resulted in significant injuries to the side of her head.
10/04/2015 5:00 PM
JFK & Transverse
The victim locked his $3500 road bike to a rack using a cable lock. He returned a few hours later to find the cable lock cut and the bike stolen. The bike was not registered and the owner could not provide SFPD with a serial number.
Captain’s Note: Cable locks are not effective because just about any cable can be quickly and easily cut. Without a serial number it is very unlikely that the owner will get his bike back. For tips on registering and locking your bike visit www.safebikes.org
