Redwood City: Man’s death considered homicide
April 24, 2014, 05:00 AM

Police continue to investigate the death of a man found with significant head trauma in a Redwood City park as a homicide.

Peter Keegan, a 57-year-old transient, was found lying on the ground unconscious at Red Morton Park before 8:30 a.m. April 14 and died shortly after arriving at Stanford Hospital.

San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said Keegan died from multiple blunt force trauma wounds to the head, which Redwood City police said was consistent with him being the victim of an assault.

Keegan was found by a parkgoer on a walkway near the community and activities building and bocce ball court located at 1200 Roosevelt Ave., authorities said.

Police Lt. Sean Hart said officers are interviewing anyone who lives in the area or frequents the park as well as those who were present when he was found. They are also seeking any video surveillance that may be available from the surrounding area, he said.

Forensic testing of evidence gathered at the crime scene is being processed, however, Hart said he could not confirm what was removed from the park.

The Coroner’s Office is still compiling a full autopsy and toxicology report which could take two to three weeks to determine how exactly Keegan died and if he was under the influence at the time of his death, Foucrault said.

No one is in custody and police could not confirm if there were any suspects.

Anyone with information should contact Redwood City police at (650) 780-7100.
