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.
