Coroner identifies member of Hells Angels who was slain at weekend funeral for another member
By The Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) ' Authorities have identified a member of the Hells Angels who police have said was shot and killed at a funeral for another member of the gang.

The Santa Clara County coroner on Monday identified the victim as 52-year-old Steve Tausan.

His sister Karen Tausan said he was a member of the Santa Cruz chapter, where he enforced the club's rules as sergeant-at-arms.

Police have made no arrests in Saturday's killing, which took place amid a crowd of 4,000 mourners gathered for the funeral of Jeffrey "Jethro" Pettigrew.

Pettigrew was the president of the Hells Angels' San Jose chapter who was gunned down at a Nevada casino last month.

Police say their investigation into Steve Tausan's death has been hampered by tampering at the crime scene.
