Ex-Girlfriend, 2 Others Arrested In Millbrae Man's Murder

SAN MATEO (CBS SF) -- Three people have been arrested in the murder of Millbrae man including his ex-girlfriend who is the mother of his two children, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department announced Monday.

The arrests came on the heels of an intense multi-agency investigation into 27-year-old Keith Green's suspicious disappearance on April 29th.

Using information gathered during the investigation, detectives obtained two search warrants late last week for a residence in Burlingame and a residence in Hillsborough.

The first search warrant was served Friday afternoon in the 1800 block of Trousdale in Burlingame. At the residence, 40-year-old Olivier Adella of Burlingame was taken into custody without incident.

The second search warrant was served Saturday morning in the 600 block of West Santa Inez in Hillsborough. Taken into custody at that residence were 29-year-old Kaveh Bayat of Hillsborough and his girlfriend, 30-year-old Tiffany Li, also of Hillsborough.

Li has been identified as the former girlfriend of Green and the mother of his two children

Green was reported missing on April 29th after he failed to return home after meeting with Li at the Millbrae Pancake House the night before. At the time, he only had his cell phone with him.

The cell phone was later discovered in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park by a hiker.

On May 11th, his body was discovered by Sonoma County deputies near Highway 101 just outside of Healdsburg. An autopsy by the Sonoma County Coroner's Office ruled Green's death was a homicide.

Detectives are still processing evidence as they continue to build a case against the three suspects and trying to ascertain the motive behind Green's death.

All three suspects were booked into the Maguire Correctional Faculty on charges of murder and conspiracy. They are expected to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon in Redwood City. All three are being held on a no bail status.

Anyone with information about this case was urged to call Detective John Carroll at (650) 259-2313 or e-mail him at; or Detective Gaby Chaghouri at (650) 259-214 or e-mail him at

The public was also urged to call the Sheriff's Office Anonymous Tip Line at 1-800-547-2700.
