Edward French often photographed locations for possible commercial shoots, which may have been why he was at Twin Peaks.

Police said the two people responsible were after his camera.

Those who knew French said he was one of the Bay Area's best location managers. "He could talk to anybody. A location manager has to walk up to a house because the director likes the look of the house, knock on the front door and say to the residents: 'Hey can we bring in 60 people and film in here?' and get them to say yes," French's friend Sean House said.

Police describe the suspects as an African American male in his 20s with shoulder-length dreads, and an African American woman in her late teens.

They were seen taking off in a dark, grey Honda Accord with rear-end damage.
