Update: Victim identified as detectives continue investigating apparent homicide


San Mateo County Sheriff's detectives are still investigating an apparent homicide after a 32-year-old Pacifica man's body was found on Skyline Boulevard near the El Corte de Madera Creek Preserve at 11:35 p.m. Monday, June 17.

The San Mateo County Coroner's Office this afternoon identified the dead man as Abdulmalek Nasher. No other details are available at this time.

Sara Stinson of KRON 4 News reported on Twitter that a white Toyota taxi that appears to be from Skyline Yellow Cab out of Pacifica was towed from the scene, and that the Sheriff's Office confirmed that the car was involved with the case under investigation.

Sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement performed an extensive search of the area this morning as traffic was rerouted from the area.

Skyline Boulevard in the area of Reids Roost Road near Wunderlich County Park and Woodside was closed for several hours this morning but was reopened shortly before noon.

"We ask that any residents in this area report any suspicious activity that may have occurred in the middle of the night such as suspicious persons," according to an alert issued early Tuesday morning. "If anyone you do not know knocks on your door that isn't Law Enforcement, please call 9-1-1 immediately."

Anyone who has any information regarding this incident should contact Detective Gordon Currie at 650-363-4051, e-mail, or call the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Anonymous Tip Line at 1-800-547-2700.
