Investigators are still trying to figure out the motive behind the murder of a San Francisco socialite. Kate Horan also dealt in high end Italian jewelry. She was once a guest on an ABC7's "View from the Bay."

Friends say the 45-year-old returned from a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina with her mother on Friday. Her body was found in her second floor Russian hill apartment on Saturday morning.

"In this neighborhood it's not something that's typical, as far as investigating homicides go. So it is rare, but it can happen," SFPD Officer Albie Esparza said.

No one has been arrested and investigators won't say how Horan died.
