The on-line Berkeley Police Bulletin for Friday, October 15, reported a homicide at 1:54 a.m. Berkeley Homicide Det. Robert Rittenhouse told the Planet on Monday that the death is considered suspicious and is under investigation. Police did not return subsequent calls about the incident. 

The location for the incident report was listed in the Bulletin as Addison and McKinley, the area of the public service center housing the jail, the police department and the police and fire dispatch center, but Rittenhouse said that the death was not a death in custody.  


There is no police blotter today because the Planet’s repeated calls to the department public information officer on Monday evening were not returned.
