A 12-year-old girl whose mother was found dead in their native Virginia earlier this week turned up in San Francisco today.

Brittany Mae Smith was spotted in a Richmond District store. Her mother's boyfriend, Jeffrey Scott Easley, is in custody. He is suspected of abducting the child -- and of killing her mother.

The man and girl were spotted at around 2 p.m. in a Safeway and taken into custody shortly thereafter. Smith is currently safe with child protective services. Easley is incarcerated; the Roanoke County, Va. police issued a warrant for him earlier this week on abduction charges.

  • 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.'"
