Wednesday marks the 35th anniversary of the Moscone-Milk Murders. The shooter was Dan White.
Some quick notes:
*At the press conference where then SF Supervisor Dianne Feinstein announced the shocking deaths, the City Hall beat reporter for the SF Chronicle was Duffy Jennings.
Jennings, who was at the presser, was married to KGO-TV anchor, Cheryl Jennings. He was also the longtime PR head of the SF Giants.
*Barbara Taylor, the longtime KCBS City Hall reporter was also present at the news conference.
*An audible gasp could be heard from the assembled press corps when Feinstein made the announcement.
Another note: Inside City Hall that day: Willie Brown. White shot Moscone and Milk and missed Brown who was at a nearby office away from the initial crime scene.
*Prominent SF attorney, James Murphy, who was a young member of the SFPD Police Academy staff, actually took White from the homicide division into the Hall of Justice jail. Murphy told me he had a "deer in the headlights" kind of look.
