Missing Woodland Man’s Car Impounded, Family Fighting Charges
WOODLAND (CBS13) – A Woodland man has been missing for a week after falling off Pier 32 in San Francisco after a Giants game.
Now his friends and family say a local tow company is trying to make money daily off of his possible death.
Friends of Victor Murillo say his 2003 Accord was towed away from his neighborhood two days after he disappeared for being parked in a “No Parking Zone.”
Since then the company, Tic Tac Towing has been charging $75 a day and won’t allow family to search the inside for any important documents belonging to victor.
Saying they must either have a death certificate or a visit from the car’s financial lender.
His friends don’t want the car back, but say they would like to be able to at least make copies of what’s inside for their records.
“At a time of tragedy, it’s difficult to stomach that someone would do this,” said Steve Himenez, Victor’s friend.
Tic Tac Towing told CBS13 the procedure the company is following is the law and they have no other option but to obey it.
