Brutality manifested itself with several high-profile slayings in San Francisco this year.

A fateful knock at the door

A parolee dressed as a utility worker allegedly robbed, sexually assaulted and killed a San Francisco socialite in her apartment. The horrid crime occurred soon after the accused, Scott Holland, reportedly called his mother and ex-wife to complain about child support payments.

Gone, but not forgotten
Pearla Louis, 53, was reported missing one July afternoon. Then, shortly before 9 a.m. the next day, her body was found stuffed in a suitcase in the Bay near Folsom Street. Her boyfriend, a San Francisco resident, pleaded not guilty to the killing of the grandmother.

Swan song
One of the two iconic swans that waded in the Palace of Fine Arts lagoon had its neck broken, and beer cans were found at the crime scene. The killer is likely a young person who, like most animal killers, eventually
targets humans, a caretaker warned.



Honeybee massacre
A San Francisco farm was stung by a honeybee slaughter. A vandal slaughtered nearly 200,000 European honeybees, breaking into the community farm and spraying two hives with pesticides. The honeybees were used to pollinate the gardens at the Hayes Valley Farm.
