Kevin Collins Case: Bones Found at Haight Street Home Are Not Missing Boy's
Police descended on a home in the Upper Haight yesterday morning where they served a search warrant related to the cold case investigation of Kevin Collins, the 10-year-old boy who disappeared from a San Francisco street 29 years ago.
While at the residence, located on the 1100 block of Masonic St., cadaver dogs indicated the presence of possible remains under the concrete floor of the garage; when officers removed the concrete, they found several bones, according to Officer Carlos Manfredi.
The San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office took the bones, and after a preliminary assessment, they determined the remains belong to an animal, and are not Kevin's.
Still, police said the bones are undergoing further analysis, which means this is an ongoing investigation and the search warrant remains under seal.
Kevin disappeared on his way home from basketball practice at St. Agnes School on Feb. 10, 1984. According to the Chron, the boy was last seen on a bus bench at 6:40 p.m. at Oak Street and Masonic Avenue, just a half a block from the school. He was wearing a San Francisco Giants jacket and his school uniform.
