From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Evelyn Hernandez (1978 - 2002) was a woman who disappeared along with her five-year-old son in San Francisco, California in May 2002. She was nine months pregnant with her second child at the time she went missing.


Disappearance and murder

Evelyn Hernandez, a 24-year-old Salvadoran American who worked as a vocational nurse, was last heard from on the night of May 1, 2002, at her residence in San Francisco.[1] Her wallet was found several days later, on Linden Avenue at Canal Street, in South San Francisco, two blocks from where her boyfriend, Herman Aguilera, worked at a limousine company. On May 7, 2002, she and her 5-year-old son Alex were reported missing. On July 24, 2002, Evelyn Hernandez's torso was found floating in San Francisco Bay, near the Embarcadero and Folsom Street. Her full-term unborn child and her son Alex have not been found. On October 5, 2002, the Visual and Performing Arts Department at the University of San Francisco held a march on Mission Street in memory of Hernandez. The case was also profiled twice on America's Most Wanted during the summer of 2003.[2]

Comparison to Peterson case

Many observers have drawn parallels between Hernandez's death and that of Laci Peterson, a Modesto, California woman who was murdered while seven months pregnant in December 2002, noting that Hernandez's case did not receive the same level of publicity. Scott Peterson's attorney, Mark Geragos, suggested at one point that the two pregnant women could have been murdered by a ritualistic Satanic cult, pointing out the way both women's bodies were decomposed and the location where both bodies were found.

On September 20, 2006, Former Congressman William E. Dannemeyer sent a letter to Attorney General Bill Lockyer pointing out that both Laci and Evelyn disappeared on satanic holy days, and that they both ended up in the San Francisco Bay with their hands, feet, and heads missing.[3]
