A man accused of killing another man and setting his body on fire in San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park in 2011 was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and other charges this afternoon, prosecutors said.
David Munoz Diaz, now 25 years old, allegedly killed Freddy Roberto Canul-Arguello, 23, early on the morning of June 10, 2011, then burned the body and left it in a blue recycling bin near the park’s tennis courts just off of Buena Vista Avenue East near Haight Street, according to the district attorney’s office.
Diaz’s attorney had said that the death was accidental and occurred during a consensual sexual encounter between Canul-Arguello and Diaz, who panicked and set the body on fire.
Today, a jury found Diaz guilty of involuntary manslaughter, arson, mutilation of the remains of a human being and destroying evidence, according to the district attorney’s office.
