Police seek public's help in solving Lower Haight stabbing 

San Francisco police are again asking the public’s help in catching Philip DiMartino’s killer.

The 36-year-old marketing executive was brutally stabbed in his Lower Haight apartment on Hermann Street. A concerned co-worker visited the apartment on Aug. 2 after DiMartino, pictured, failed to arrive at work. The co-worker saw the body through a window and called police.

Investigators have only revealed some clues. There was no forced entry into the apartment, and the killer may have been injured after cutting his hand during the attack, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

Police also said the suspect is a Hispanic man and the murder may have occurred Friday, July 30.

The Mayor’s Office has authorized a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect responsible for the murder.

Police urge anyone with information to call SFPD Homicide Detail at (415) 553-1145, or the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. There is also the option of Text-A-Tip to 847411 or (TIP411).
