Within hours, Taylor took to Twitter to celebrate the moment and she started getting noticed by hundreds of social media users.

The woman who went viral after unintentionally photobombing Steph Curry’s memorable golf celebration has now identified herself to the public. On Wednesday, the Golden State Warriors’ standout player celebrated a successful shot against the Milwaukee Bucks, with a golf swing motion.

However, the focus shifted from the four-time NBA champion to a woman in the background wearing revealing attire and cheering. On Thursday, Katherine Taylor, a San Francisco-based escort who charges $900 for one-hour experiences, according to her website, revealed that she is the gorgeous woman behind the viral photo. Although her X (Twitter) account has been deleted, Taylor reposted the photo of the celebration with her in the background.

ROGER BOAS WAS SAN FRANCISCO’S UNDERAGE SEX TRAFFICKER AND CITY HALL BOSS

New Probe of S.F. Cop’s ’88 Slaying / Ties to infamous prostitution ring are subject of investigation

By

1998-05-20 04:00:00 PDT San Francisco — San Francisco police have begun a new investigation into the 10-year-old slaying of one of their own officers — the only unsolved killing of a city cop in modern department history.

The body of vice officer Lester Garnier was found behind the wheel of his 1984 Corvette in a Walnut Creek parking lot on July 11, 1988. He had been shot twice at close range.

San Francisco police are zeroing in on links between Garnier and an infamous Mission District prostitution ring that was allegedly patronized by some of the city’s most influential civic leaders — as well as members of the Police Department.

At this point, police have no firm theory about Garnier’s death. But Garnier helped investigate the brothel, and police say they want to learn more about off-duty contact Garnier may have had with prostitutes from the ring.

“We are going to take this case wherever it leads,” said San Francisco Deputy Police Chief John Willett. “Other people asked why open old

wounds, but my top investigators felt we should do this.”

The investigation was prompted by the recent discovery of a memorandum in a vice unit file suggesting that an unidentified corrupt officer worked in the vice squad about the time Garnier was slain.

The 30-year-old Garnier had served in the Police Department for eight years at the time of his death. He spent the last four years in the vice squad, where he arrested hundreds of prostitutes. He was decorated twice for bravery and was held in high regard by fellow officers and superiors.

Shortly before his death, Garnier was assigned to conduct surveillance on a brothel operating near Mission Dolores. The stakeout was part of a sensitive investigation that led to the indictment of former city Chief Administrative Officer Roger Boas, San Francisco police officer Patrick Miyagishima and six others for patronizing the brothel.

Six other people were indicted for running the operation, including ringleaders Patrick Roberts and Kelly “Sunshine” Loyd.

A new review of police logs shows that Garnier conducted surveillance on the ring’s operation on at least two occasions, and police sources say Garnier probably watched the brothel several more times than were officially documented in department logs.

Investigators are also looking at possible connections between Garnier and Miyagishima, the only San Francisco officer convicted of patronizing the brothel.

In 1980, Garnier served as a reserve officer in Broadmoor Village, a small community encircled by Daly City. Miyagishima had been a Broadmoor reservist eight years earlier, and his patronage of the prostitution ring dated to that time, San Francisco police said in 1988.

At that time, authorities also said they were investigating police bachelor parties in Broadmoor that allegedly were attended by young prostitutes invited by Miyagishima.

William Noonan, then chief of the Broadmoor Police Department, announced that an investigation had found that Loyd was present at two parties in 1982 and 1983 that were attended by cops from Broadmoor and other Bay Area communities.

Miyagishima’s lawyer, William Murphy, said yesterday that while Garnier was a Broadmoor reservist, he reportedly attended a “stag party” given by a Broadmoor police officer in San Francisco’s Ocean View area. Murphy said Miyagishima brought two prostitutes from the brothel to the party.

When Murphy heard later that Garnier had been involved in the stakeout of the brothel, he said, “I was shocked and surprised that he had been staking out the place when he would have known some of the working girls. . . . I said, ‘Wow, someone better look into this stuff.’ ”

Murphy said that after Garnier’s slaying, he and Miyagishima shared the information about Garnier attending the stag party with both San Francisco and Broadmoor police, “but nothing developed. I never understood it, because normally you’d turn the whole town upside down to get the murderer.”

The lawyer could not recall with whom he met with about the case in the San Francisco Police Department, and San Francisco police have been unable to verify his account. Miyagishima could not be reached for comment.

Police also want to learn more about any off-duty ties Garnier may have had with other people in the underworld, including repeated contacts with prostitutes who did not work for the San Francisco prostitution ring.

Miyagishima was fired from the force after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with a minor. He was given a suspended one- year sentence, 18 months probation and a $1,000 fine.

Boas, who campaigned unsuccessfully for mayor in 1987, pleaded guilty to patronizing the brothel. He was fined $100,000 and performed six months of community service picking up trash in the city.

At the time of the investigation, Police Chief Frank Jordan emphatically denied that Garnier’s slaying had any connection to the prostitution ring. Yesterday, Jordan said he could not recall his denial but assumed it was based on information from subordinates.

Garnier’s slaying was originally investigated by members of the Walnut Creek Police Department. They conducted more than 500 interviews in connection with the case, but came up with no weapon, motive or suspect.

Walnut Creek Police Chief Richard Gregson said yesterday that his department “welcomes the opportunity to work with the San Francisco Police Department.”

“We have extended an offer to be as helpful as we can be,” he said.

In San Francisco, three respected investigators have been assigned to the case. Inspectors Joe Toomey, Jeff Lindberg and Holly Pera plan to interview witnesses again, re-examine physical evidence and review old internal police disciplinary files.

They are interested specifically in Garnier’s activities after he left his Concord home shortly before 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, 1988. His car was seen in a Walnut Creek parking lot about 11:30 p.m. Police now believe that Garnier was killed at about that time.

“If someone has any information at all about what Garnier was doing during this period — however insignificant it might seem — please give us a call,” Toomey said.

San Francisco Police Chief Fred Lau stressed that his investigators will be working on a murder “that bothers many of us in the department.”

“I have the utmost confidence that our investigators will leave no stone unturned,” Lau said.

At the same time, newly unsealed indictments show that 12 others, including a San Francisco police officer, also were accused of buying sex from underage girls working out of a brothel near historic Mission Dolores.

Additionally, a San Francisco man, Patrick Dale Roberts, 40, was accused of running the brothel and was jailed in lieu of $500,000 bail.

Dist. Atty. Arlo Smith said several other operators are being sought.

The case has won intense local interest, both for the prominence of rumored investigation targets and because a policeman assigned to the case was shot to death last July. His killer is not known and Smith said his death is “totally unrelated” to the investigation.

In addition to retired Chief Administrative Officer Roger Boas, 67, charges have been filed against Police Officer Patrick Miyagishima, 32. Both surrendered and posted bail.

Smith said three others who were indicted–John Azevedo, 46, and Somen Kai Toy, 49, of San Francisco, and Sanford Allison, 44, of Concord–also surrendered and were released on bail. The eight other suspects will not be identified until they surrender, Smith said.

Boas, a San Francisco car dealer and one-time chairman of the California Democratic Party, was selected by two mayors, George R. Moscone and Dianne Feinstein, to serve for a decade as the city’s second-in-command before running unsuccessfully for mayor himself last fall.

The woman behind America’s ‘topless revolution’: Inside the wild life of the country’s first breast-baring dancer – who ‘liberated’ the US with raunchy performances after undergoing 44 SURGERIES on her 44DD boobs (which were insured for $1.5 MILLION)

  • Carol Doda, who grew up in San Francisco, sparked change across the US
  • She bared her chest during her performances at the now infamous Condor Club
  • The star earned widespread praise for spearheading the ‘liberating movement’ 

In the 1960s, America found itself in the throes of a ‘nationwide topless revolution’ – and it was all down to one woman.

Carol Doda, who grew up in San Francisco, sparked change across the US after first baring her chest during a performance at the now infamous Condor Club.

During her time in the limelight, the star underwent 44 surgical operations to inject silicone into her breasts to take them from a size 34B to 44DD.

Her impressive bust, which was dubbed ‘the new Twin Peaks of San Francisco,’ was later insured for $1.5 million.

She earned widespread praise for spearheading the ‘liberating movement’ which shaped the next 20 years of entertainment.

Carol, who passed away in 2015, continued dancing until the age of 49.

Here, FEMAIL explores her rise to fame as a new documentary is set to delve into her mesmerizing story.

Carol Doda, who grew up in San Francisco, sparked change across the US after first baring her chest during a performance at the now infamous Condor Club

Carol, whose parents divorced when she was just three years old, dropped out of school in the eighth grade and began making her own way from a very early age.

She found work as a secretary and became a cocktail waitress at just 14 years old which set her on a now infamous rise to fame.

The platinum blonde found work as a lounge entertainer at the Condor Club – a lively bar in San Francisco – but was keen to take her act one step further.

Carol first went topless in an impromptu performance at the bar in June 1964 – in a move that changed every nightspot on busy Broadway in San Francisco.

She wore a chest-baring monokini by avant-garde designer Rudi Gernreich – in what was later described as precedent-setting act which cemented her as a major American cultural sex icon of the 1960s.

The swimsuit design, which ‘sent shockwaves across the world,’ has since been ‘faithfully reissued’ and is still available today for $145.

Word soon spread about Carol’s groundbreaking display.

Crowds began flocking to the venue and the performer told The San Francisco Chronicle in 2009: ‘The minute I knew I existed in life was the night I started the Condor thing. The only thing that mattered to me was entertaining people.’

Her impressive bust, which was dubbed 'the new Twin Peaks of San Francisco,' was later insured for $1.5 million

San Francisco newspaper columnist Herb Caen previously characterized Carol as ‘the Susan B. Anthony of this particular liberating movement,’ in reference to the American social reformer who played a pivotal role in the women’s suffrage movement.

Interest in the star only continued to grow and it was said her act became a tourist attraction second only to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Carol soon began adding further elements to her performance.

She previously admitted that she was not the greatest dancer but enticed viewers with her stagecraft, telling the outlet at the time: ‘A lot of great dancers don’t get the audience reaction that I do.’

Carol would dramatically descend to the stage atop a white piano on an elevator platform that was lowered from the ceiling on cables.

Tragically, the mechanism she became synonymous with would later prove fatal for another employee at the club in 1983.

Bouncer Jimmy Ferrozzo and his exotic dancer girlfriend Theresa Hill were having sex on top of the infamous piano when they accidentally hit the on switch, according to reports.

The instrument rapidly rose to the ceiling in just 90 seconds and crushed 40-year-old Ferrozzo, who weighed 240-pound, to death.

Hill, 23, survived only because she was thinner than her companion.

The performer told The San Francisco Chronicle in 2009: 'The minute I knew I existed in life was the night I started the Condor thing. The only thing that mattered to me was entertaining people'

Carol continued to bare her breasts each night and was eventually earning the equivalent of about $4,000 a week today

However, Carol continued on with her act nonetheless.

Throughout the years, as a result of being thrust into the limelight, the performer underwent a series of breast augmentations.

She had 44 surgical treatments in which emulsified silicone was injected into her bust at a cost of about $12,000 in today’s money – expanding her bra size from 34B to 44DD.

The procedure has since been banned but Carol claimed to have suffered no health complications as a result.

In the end, her ample chest was said to be insured for $1.5 million – with her breasts were dubbed as ‘the new Twin Peaks of San Francisco.’

By 1968, Carol went one step further and even went bottomless – performing completely nude – until California ruled that women could not perform completely naked in clubs that served alcohol.

Due to the scandalous nature of her act, the Condor was raided by authorities but Carol was ultimately found not guilty of indecency according to community standards.

And so she continued to bare her breasts each night and was eventually earning the equivalent of about $4,000 a week today.

Nightclubs up and down the country began enticing customers with bare-breasted dancers in an era that spanned more than two decades.

She had 44 surgical treatments in which emulsified silicone was injected into her bust at a cost of about $12,000 in today's money - expanding her bra size from 34B to 44DD

Before her death in 2015, Carol told website babyboomerdaily.com: ‘I was the first to go topless in 1964 and started a sexual revolution that spun as fast as twirling tassels.’

Carol, who later appeared on screen with a whole host of acting credits to her name, left the club in 1985.

She later owned a lingerie store in the Bay Area called Carol Doda’s Champagne and Lace Lingerie Boutique.

But that was not the only avenue she pursued.

She was the frontwoman for her own rock band the Lucky Stiffs, modelled and performed comedy.

The entrepreneur was still dancing, this time fully clothed, at North Beach clubs in 2009, telling the press: ‘The only way I’ll stop performing is when I can’t walk anymore, honey.’

The star performed until the age of 49. She never married or had children.

Carol died from complications caused by kidney failure in 2015 aged 78.

She is still considered by many to be ‘part of the legacy of San Francisco’ and was even immortalized in a mural last year.
