Gun used in Golden Gate Park, Marin killings stolen from civilian in Fisherman’s Wharf

The gun used to kill a Canadian tourist and a hiker in Marin County was stolen from a civilian’s car in Fisherman’s Wharf, said San Francisco Police Cmdr. Toney Chaplin.

The pistol was reported stolen Oct. 1, and police believe it was taken from a lock box in a car the day before in a residential area near the wharf. San Francisco police are seeking video in the area.

The Marin County killing “fast tracked this investigation,” said Chaplin at a press conference Friday. San Francisco police had leads before in Audrey Carey’s killing, he added.

Police announced Thursday night the two killings were connected. Police now believe robbery was the motive in the homicides.

Audrey Carey, 23, was found shot in the head in Golden Gate Park early on the morning of Oct. 3 after attending the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Her body was found in a wooded area that looked well traveled, said Chaplin.

She had been on a backpacking trip from her native Quebec and Chaplin said she had been camping in the park. Up until Oct. 1, Carey had been in email contact with her family in Canada, but the contact stopped after that. She first arrived in The City Sept. 19.

On Oct. 5 yoga teacher Steve Carter, 67, was found shot dead on a hiking trail west of Fairfax in Marin County. He had been shot multiple times and his car had been stolen. His dog had been shot as well, but was not killed.

Marin County Sheriff’s Department investigators used a GPS device in Carter’s car and tracked it to Portland, Ore. where three suspects were arrested and questioned. The three suspects — two men and a woman – had Carter’s car when they were taken into custody Wednesday at the St. Francisco Dining Hall in Portland.

The trio included Morrison Haze Lampley, 23, Sean Michael Angold, 24, and Lila Scott Alligood, 18. They have no known addresses, according to authorities.

The trio were also questioned by two San Francisco homicide inspectors who flew to Portland, according to police.

Carey’s property was found in the possession of the suspects when they were arrested, which linked them to her death, said police.

Police are looking into whether the three suspects had any priors.

The gun used in the shooting death of Kate Steinle, who was shot as she walked down Pier 14 in early July, was also stolen from a car in San Francisco.
