What's going on up there? Is there a hidden drug lab or pot farm up on Skyline?

> Is there a hidden drug lab or pot farm up on Skyline?

But only for the last couple decades. (just being *slightly* snarky)

Very curious about the rest of the story as it comes out.

HMB Review has some more details. Apparently the first victim was a cab driver who had been dispatched to ferry a passenger from the Pacifica area, Malik Dosouqi. Dosouqi allegedly stabbed Nasher whose body was discoverd by an officer an hour later. The second victim, John Sione Pekipaki, was a tow truck driver from Specialty Towing in Redwood City who had received a call to assist a stranded vehicle on Skyline but was unable to locate the vehicle. Dosouqi is alleged to have stabbed Pekipaki during this period.

On a completely speculative note (without a shred of evidence), I would guess that Dosoqui realized that any ride sharing service would have an alert for a murderer on the loose in the area. So a call to the tow driver was a potential method to get a ride out of the area.

On a confusing note, the articles reference Dosoqui as driving a BMW toward the officer who fired his gun at the vehicle. How did Dosoqui gain access to the bmw? Was it stolen from the vicinity? Why hadn't Dosoqui just driven the bmw away already? Apparently officers did recover the murder weapon at the scene which will make for a strong case.

This article strongly implies the BMW was owned by the suspect and he hired the cab driver to help drop off the BMW at the remote location along Skyline. If the BMW could be driven away it calls into serious question why he would need to call a tow truck driver for transport.

Putting aside the fact that this guy was a psycho nutjob, none of the timeline makes any sense. The cab driver reportedly left his home in Pacifica at about 10pm and was discovered murdered on Skyline somewhat more than an hour later. Then the next evening (almost 24 hours later) a tow truck gets a dispatch call to go to skyline where that driver is then fatally stabbed. Police arrive at 11pm -ish presumably to investigate the morning from the tow driver(though why the came back is not explicitly explained) and the psycho killer drives a BMW at them, so they shoot at him. If the BMW was driveable why didn't he drive away after the first murder?
