The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Wednesday that the human remains found in a Hayward warehouse last June were identified as belonging to missing San Francisco Uber driver Piseth Chhay.
On June 24, 2017, police and Alameda County sheriff’s deputies were called to the warehouse by workers there who had discovered what appeared to be human remains.
Following a search of the warehouse by the sheriff’s K-9’s, staff from the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office retrieved several bags of body parts.
DNA samples have confirmed that those body parts belonged to Chhay, a 48-year-old father of two who was last seen May 14, 2017, according to police.
The San Francisco Police Department’s Homicide Detail Unit is conducting a homicide investigation for the death of Chhay, and investigators have identified Bob Tang, also known as “Bob Tov”) as a suspect. Previous news reports revealed that police said Tang and Chhay are family acquaintances.
Tang is connected to the warehouse and is believed to have fled to Cambodia. His car was found May 25, 2017, at a parking lot at San Francisco International Airport, according to police.
The San Francisco Police Department is working working with its federal law enforcement partners to find Tang, who is thought to be the last person to see Chhay.
Anyone with information regarding the case or information of Tang’s whereabouts is asked to contact the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411, beginning the text message with “SFPD.” Tipsters may remain anonymous.
