Lawyer: No missing witness at S.F. hospital
November 06, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — A lawyer involved in the case of a woman found dead in a stairwell at San Francisco General Hospital in October is questioning the existence of a key witness being sought by investigators.

Harry Stern, the attorney for five members of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Office, says reports that a potential witness may have seen a woman’s body in the stairwell — days before Lynne Spalding was found — are not believable.

Stern says no one reported any such incident to the sheriff’s deputies, who provide hospital security.

Stern’s clients were interviewed Monday by investigators from the state Department of Public Health.

The Spalding family spokesman, David Perry, told KTVU Monday that the information about the possible witness came directly to him from a doctor at the hospital.
