Does the description of Philip DiMartino's potential killer ring a bell?
San Francisco Police are appealing to the public to help them capture the person who stabbed 36-year-old marketing executive Philip DiMartino to death. A possible description has been released of the murderer, though it's a bit broader than the one Richard Kimble was working with in The Fugitive: The SFPD is seeking a Hispanic man who may have cut his hand during the brutal murder.

Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza tells SF Weekly it is not yet clear how old this man may be or what hand was cut.

DiMartino was found stabbed repeatedly in the torso on Aug. 2 when one of his co-workers peered through the window of his apartment on the 100 block of Hermann in the Lower Haight. The senior marketing executive at Archstone had missed a key meeting that morning.
