Suspect arrested for murder of teenager in San Francisco in 1978

SAN FRANCISCO – A man was arrested in Colorado on suspicion of murdering a teenage girl in San Francisco more than four decades ago, and detectives say he may be a suspect in other unsolved murders.

Mark Stanley Persnet, 76, was arrested Thursday in suburban Denver after a joint operation by San Francisco Police, the FBI and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, officials announced Sunday. He was charged with murder investigation in connection with the death of Marissa Harvey in 1978.

It is not known if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.

The 15-year-old New York girl was on her way to visit family in San Francisco when she did not return from a day trip to Golden Gate Park. His body was found a day later in nearby Sutro Heights Park.

The San Francisco Police Department said in a statement that investigators used the best technology available at the time and eliminated all leads, but the case went cold. In October 2020, they reopened the investigation and determined Persnet as a suspect using “advanced investigative methods,” the statement said without specifying the methods.
