In a case that has opened in utter uncertainty, police have now charged Binh Thai Luc, 35, for five counts of murder. In a neighborhood in San Francisco with a thriving ethnic community, many of them Asian, which is accustomed to a low crime rate, these murders are especially shocking due to its brutality. Of the five people found at 7:45 a.m., Friday, bludgeoned to death in a residence, the bodies have been so badly damaged that officers can’t make identifications.

The details are sketchy. Police at first thought it might have been a case of a murder suicide. They found “four separate homicide scene within the residence,” according to Police Chief Greg Suhr. He claims that they “apparently [died] from blunt trauma, (thought) we really don’t know what happened.” He also added that an “edge-weapon involved” might have been also have been a murder weapon.

Luc has a criminal record, including gang involvement, though police don’t think this incident was gang related. The reported that “he did not surrender” to the arrest, that he “was not arrested at home,” and that he was no hurt during the arrest.


As for the five victims, police have only said vaguely that there “was a relationship” between the suspect and the victims, but they have not specified what it was, other than to say that it was not a random murder.

Luc’s younger brother, Brian Luc, 32, who lived with him, was also arrested, but on unrelated charges of drug and ammunition possession and violation of probation.
