Family of Slain Dodgers Fan to Ask for Witnesses to Come Forward

The family of a slain Dodgers fan planned to ask for witnesses in the killing to come forward, according to a Los Angeles Times report Saturday.

Family members of Jonathan Denver will pass out fliers in front of AT&T Park in San Francisco on Sunday.  The fliers will include information about an account the family has set up for donors to help with memorial expenses, according to relatives.

Michael Montgomery, 21, was arrested and booked on suspicion of murder in Denver’s death on Thursday.  He was released from jail Friday night after the San Francisco district attorney said there wasn’t enough evidence to charge him.

A statement issued by San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon said there was not enough evidence to move forward with the case.

Denver, 24, was stabbed during a fight with a group of Giants fans after a Dodgers-Giants game on Wednesday, police said.  Denver was wearing Dodgers apparel.

Two years ago, Giants fan Bryan Stow was brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium.  Stow suffered brain damage in the attack.
