On the very day the San Francisco Police Department blamed a man impersonating a utility worker for lying his way into Kathleen Horan's apartment and murdering her, they made an arrest in the case.

Gary Scott Holland, 43, is charged with murder in the death of Horan, a 46-year-old Russian Hill publicist and philanthropist. Holland, a city resident, is currently on parole for attempted murder in Fresno.

The SFPD at this time have not deigned to explain how they connected the dots and nabbed Holland on Friday, but did release this statement:

Kathleen "Kate" Horan

As a result of the collaborative efforts of SFPD Officers, Homicide Inspectors, Crime Scene Investigators, the Crime Lab and especially the witnesses who came forward, the San Francisco Police Department was able to identify Holland.

  • 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.'"
