Homicide investigators have arrested a 59-year-old man in connection with the murder of Rebekah Wilson, 37, at the Winsor Hotel earlier this month.

According to police, officers were called to the hotel, located at 20 Sixth St., just before 7 p.m. on Feb. 2. When they arrived, they found Wilson dead in the hotels.

Six days later -- on Feb. 8 -- medical authorities ruled her death a homicide.
That same day, police identified and arrested Pool, a San Francisco resident, and charged him with murdering Wilson. This marks San Francisco's fifth homicide this year.

Police had no more details to give at this time, and a woman who answered the phone at the Winsor Hotel said she knew nothing about a homicide there.

The case is still being investigated. Anyone with information about this incident should call Inspectors William Braconi, Dan Cunningham, or Mike Morley of the Homicide Detail at 553-1145, call the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411.
