Jimenez is shown walking near the corner of 25th and Minnesota in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, close to where Quita Hague's body was dumped.

This was the first attributed murder by a group of Black Muslims called the Death Angels and this series of murders in 1973/4 came to be known as the Zebra murders.
