Six weeks to the day after firefighters discovered the partially burned body of a man in San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park, police arrested a suspect in the homicide. Police said that David M. Diaz, 22, of San Francisco, was arrested today at 850 Bryant St., the location of the San Francisco Hall of Justice. Diaz was booked into San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of arson and homicide, police said.
On June 10, firefighters responding to reports of a brush fire in the park at about 4:40 a.m. found the burned body of Freddy Roberto Canul-Arguello. Firefighters discovered Canul-Arguello’s partially burned body in a blue recycling bin near the park’s tennis courts just off of Buena Vista Avenue East. Police said that Canul-Arguello, 23, was already dead when the fire began and that he was killed near the tennis courts earlier that morning.
