SF medical examiner ID's body of man found floating in bay as missing Dodgers fan

SAN FRANCISCO

A jogger first found the body along the Embarcadero waterfront, near Howard Street shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday. The man said he was pretty sure it was a body and that when he first saw it, he ran over and got firefighters from the nearest pier. Crews lowered a ladder into the water and a diver went in to retrieve the body. The body was clothed and appeared to be wearing a dark jacket, but police have not identified the body yet. The medical examiner will be able to give an official identification within a few days.

Police officers had with them a missing person flyer for the Dodgers fan that disappeared after the Giants game Monday June 25. He is 27-year-old Victor Murillo. He lives in Woodland and works as a prison guard in Vacaville. His friends last saw him after the game on Piers 30-32. They think he fell in the water. The Coast Guard searched for several days before calling off their efforts, but family members and friends have not stopped looking for Murillo.

Murillo's cousin Jennifer told ABC7 News Wednesday that she received a call from the San Francisco Police Officers Association and they told her that the body was wearing the same clothes as her cousin the day he disappeared. However, an official identification is pending notice from the medical examiner's office.
