Rejected SFO Employee Allegedly Murders Coworker’s Boyfriend

The 31-year-old victim and his girlfriend have a three-year-old kid together.

After a coworker rebuffed his advances, a San Francisco International Airport employee fatally shot her boyfriend last week, the San Mateo County District Attorney says Tuesday.

South San Francisco resident Kevin Prasad, 31, repeatedly pursued a coworker who rejected his advances for months before planning to kill her boyfriend with the help of Prasad’s 25-year-old friend Donovan Rivera, prosecutors say. Prasad and Rivera were charged with the murder of 31-year-old Mark Mangaccat on Tuesday, Bay City News reports.

Mangaccat picked up his girlfriend and mother of his three-year-old kid from her shift last Wednesday when Rivera drove Prasad in a car to follow the couple. As Mangaccat backed the car into their garage on Abbot Avenue in Daly City, Prasad allegedly walked up to the car and fired five or six shots, prosecutors say.

The girlfriend was not hit but Mangaccat was killed. Prasad and Rivera were arrested the next day.

“The working proposition for the motive is, ‘If I kill him and get him out of the way, then I could be there to start the relationship with the grieving widow,’” says San Mateo District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. “That’s pretty bizarre.”

Wagstaffe added that the couple planned to move to Las Vegas and that Wednesday was her final day working at SFO.

Prasad and Rivera did not enter pleas and are scheduled to appear in court on May 8.
