SAN QUENTIN LIFER IS FOUND SLAIN
A 23-year-old San Quentin inmate serving a life
sentence for the brutal 1981 murder of a San Francisco
bank executive was found slain yesterday.
San Quentin prison officials said Dana B. Holley of
South San Francisco was discovered near the prison
furniture shop, his skull apparently fractured by a blow
from a blunt instrument.
Holley was convicted in July of 1983 of the
stabbing murder of Wells Fargo Bank Vice President
William Sink, 40, in Sink's San Francisco apartment.
Holley was linked to the crime when credit cards
belonging to the victim were found in his possession.
Prison spokesman Fred Everly said yesterday's killing
apparently was not related to race or gang troubles. No
weapon was found. He said two other inmates have been
identified as possible suspects.
