Richard Hafner

Early two weeks after finding a man’s body in flames at the Pacific Grove golf course, police still don’t know why 56-year-old P.G. resident Richard Haffner died, and they’re continuing to treat it as suspicious.

PGPD Sgt. Jeff Fenton was dispatched to Ocean View Boulevard around 7:20 a.m. Nov. 3 on reports of a man and building on fire at the public golf course. He arrived to find the person engulfed in flames lying unmoving on the ground next to the restroom building and a fence on fire, and attempted to douse them with the extinguisher from his car
