SAN FRANCISCO — For months, family members of a missing man have been searching for him in the San Francisco Bay Area.
They have been holding vigils, holding fundraisers, calling on the public for help, and even trying to find a body.
But they are all now in mourning after the father of one of the victims in the fatal stabbing of his son on Saturday morning is revealed to be in fact a fugitive.
Jasim Muhammad, a 49-year-old man from the East Bay, was last seen walking along a busy street near the corner of Market and Telegraph streets, in the city’s Marina District.
He was stabbed to death.
A woman who was with Muhammad told authorities that he told her he was leaving and she was in the process of trying to get him to come back.
Authorities said Muhammad has an alibi and is known to frequent the area.
The city has put out a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to his capture.
In addition to the victim’s father, another son and a cousin have been missing since the killing.
