San Francisco police have identified a suspect in a three-year-old unsolved murder case that happened in Golden Gate Park.

Police arrested 36-year-old Daniel Hill, a Reno, Nevada resident, on suspicion of killing 53-year-old Michael Ponder, a homeless man who had been residing near Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park.

Police tracked Hill down after he was arrested in connection to another homicide in Reno, said Officer Carlos Manfredi.

Detectives in Reno developed information that linked Hill to the murder of Ponder; they called SFPD and inspectors from San Francisco took a trip to Reno with an arrest warrant in hand.

Hill is currently being held in Reno on local murder charges.

On Aug. 28, 2010, a police officer found Ponder's body in Golden Gate Park near Kezar Stadium. He had been beaten and stabbed to death.
