San Francisco’s Most Famous Criminals
Murderers, robbers and ruthless drug lords seem to be drawn to San Francisco’s streets like moths to a flame.
The Doodler, whose brutal murders were even more terrifying than those of the Zodiac Killer, but went unreported in the media and are nearly unknown today.
Felix Mitchell, the grandfather of the Oakland drug trade, whose funeral felt more like that of a sitting president.
And of course, the infamous Unabomber, whose strange downward spiral sent him into a killing frenzy back in the 1980s.
All of these men once walked the streets of San Francisco, uninhibited by law or morals.
(And hey, the Zodiac Killer still hasn’t been caught… So keep an eye out for any suspicious 80-year olds.)
