Background

San Diego was born in 1978 in Berkeley, California and grew up in San Rafael, California . He attended Terra Linda High School . [5] He took classes at College of Marin and worked at San Rafael High School ‘s radio station, KSRH , listening to heavy metal and rock music . As a young man he gives up drugs , alcohol , meat , and milk products , taking an interest in the straight edge movement and becoming vegan . [1] [2]

He lived in Schellville, California, a small community outside of Sonoma , where he worked as a computer specialist. [6] [7] His landlord described him as “very nice and personable,” said his claim to be a new business venture of vegan marshmallows made without gelatin , and said that he had never given the impression of holding radical views on animals rights . The FBI claims this was all an act. [2]

San Diego is described as having stops at Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) as a well-known San Francisco Bay Area . SHIN is an international campaign set up to close Europe’s largest animal testing laboratory, Huntingdon Life Sciences , a company that performs drug and chemical research experiments on animals . [8] Before the related bombings SHAC targeted HLS customer Chiron and its employees with a series of actions, accusing them of being “puppy killers.” [1] [8]

Animal Liberation Brigade

On August 28, 2003, two sophisticated homemade bombs exploded approximately one hour apart, at the Chiron Corporation in Emeryville, California , causing minor injury damage. [1] [9] The FBI believes the second bomb has been timed to target first responders. [10] Another bomb, wrapped with nails to produce shrapnel, exploded on September 26, 2003 at the Shaklee Corporation in Pleasanton, California , again causing damage but no casualties. [11] The bombs used ammonium nitrate explosives and mechanical timers. [12]

A group called the Revolutionary Cells – Animal Liberation Brigade, an email message after each bombing. [3] FBI agents admitted that they can not prove San Diego has ties to the emails, but believe it has gotten to the group that feels them. [2] [11] The bombing targets were chosen because they were both customers of Huntingdon Life Sciences. [8]

Disappearance

The agency had San Diego under 24-hour surveillance in 2003. [13] He discovered that he was being watched and on October 6, 2003 in San Francisco , California, walked away, and never returned. [2]
