The woman found dead in her home on the 900 block of Chestnut Street over the weekend has been identified. She is Kathleen Horan, a 45-year-old San Franciscan.

SF Weekly has learned that Horan returned with her mother from a trip Buenos Aires on Friday afternoon. She was found dead in her apartment in the wee hours Saturday morning.

Horan ran a business called Sorelle Bionde importing jewelery from Italy. The website for that organization has quickly turned into a memorial site.

Horan will be remembered at a Wednesday memorial service, per a website set up by her loved ones.
