The woman found dead in her home on the 900 block of Chestnut Street over the weekend has been identified. She is Kathleen Horan, a 45-year-old San Franciscan.

SF Weekly has learned that Horan returned with her mother from a trip Buenos Aires on Friday afternoon. She was found dead in her apartment in the wee hours Saturday morning.

Horan ran a business called Sorelle Bionde importing jewelery from Italy. The website for that organization has quickly turned into a memorial site.

Horan will be remembered at a Wednesday memorial service, per a website set up by her loved ones.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
