Days after a car was found buried in the yard of a San Francisco Bay Area mansion, authorities are continuing to search for human remains as questions mount about the property’s former owner and his violent past.
On Monday, San Mateo County Dist. Atty. Steve Wagstaffe told the Mercury News that Johnny Bocktune Lew, who died in 2015, reported the Mercedes-Benz stolen in 1992 and collected $87,000 in insurance on the vehicle.
The district attorney described the case as having the elements of a true crime novel, but with missing parts.
“This book has 15 chapters in it and we’ve only got two chapters,” Wagstaffe told the Mercury News. “I don’t know if we’re ever going to get the other chapters, but I sure hope we do because it is an interesting story.”
