Two men, along with numerous other unknown assailants, tortured a 66-year-old homeless man over a three-day period, eventually killing him and dumping his body in a Golden Gate Park pond two weeks ago, officials said Tuesday.
The brutal assault began on May 22, when a group of people, including Nikki Lee Williams — who goes by the nickname “Evil” — pulled the homeless man into the park’s Alvord Lake, where he was repeatedly struck and dunked into the water, according to court records.
The next day, three blocks away on a street in the Haight, Stephen Billingsley, also known as “Pizza Steve,” and others stomped on and struck the victim, rendering him seriously injured and unconscious, according to records.
