Ryosuke Yoshioka, one of the most respected sushi chefs in San Francisco, was brutally murdered in a parking garage in the Inner Richmond on January 7, 2009 at the age of 59. His killer was Peter Fong, now 49, who encountered Yoshioka at random while having a psychotic break, and who plead guilty to murder charges. Yoshioka’s popular Sushi-Man restaurant was forced to close following his death, and Yoshioka’s wife and only son read statements to Fong in court on Friday where he was sentenced to spending the rest of his life in a mental hospital. His son said, “Forgiveness will never happen.” [Chron]
