SF police release booking photos of suspects in brutal beating death of homeless man

San Francisco police have released the booking photos of three men suspected of beating a homeless man to death in the Financial District in 2014.

Tai Thaun Lam, 67, was found in the Financial District with severe head wounds from a beating Nov. 23, 2014, and died from his injuries. The killing, called a “savage attack” by police at the time, involved two rounds of beatings.

All three suspects were arrested this fall. Most recently, Anthony Gibson-Brum, 22, was booked into San Francisco County Jail on Thursday on suspicion of murder, robbery, assault with force likely to create great bodily injury, and influencing injury on an elder likely to create great bodily injury, police said.

On Sept. 22, police arrested 21-year-old Joseph Stull of Idaho. Then, in late October, San Francisco police arrested David Peters, 21, in Stockton, both in connection with the homicide.
