San Francisco Murder Weapon Theft Wasn’t Investigated

posted on July 11, 2015

Things keep getting worse in the investigation of the murder of San Francisco resident Kathryn Steinle by a seven-time felon who had been deported five times before committing the murder in the so-called “sanctuary city.”

Earlier this week we learned that the gun used to kill Steinle had been stolen from the car of a U.S. Bureau of Land Management ranger on June 27. New reports indicate that the gun theft, which was reported to police, had not yet been assigned to an inspector for investigation when Steinle was killed on July 1.

According to a report in the San Francisco Gate, Police Chief Greg Suhr won’t elaborate on why such a serious case had not been followed up on by an investigator. Suhr later issued a department-wide bulletin reminding officers of the process in place for identifying “cases that require an immediate investigation”—too little, too late for Steinle.
