Transcript of Telephone Conversation between Charles Balis, M.D. and Sgt. Tracy Keefe of the SFPD respecting Peter Hossfeld, Monday, October 27, 1997 at 10 am.

Dr. Balis: Hello, this is Doctor Charles Balis. Is this Sergeant Keefe?
Sgt. Keefe: Yeah hi. I've been meaning to get back to you.
Dr. Balis: So what happened to Peter Hossfeld? I've been trying to get in there to see him all week. What happened?
Sgt. Keefe: That was what I was going to tell you, they cut him loose.
Dr. Balis: After the psychiatric evaluation?
Sgt. Keefe: Well, our Docs are really booked up. Once we decided he wasn't really a psycho-killer, I guess it got bumped down a notch on the priority scale.
Dr. Balis: So he wasn't seen by anybody, just turned out into the street?
Sgt. Keefe: No, relax. We've got some deputies that are real good at this stuff--have a real knack for it. They checked him out and figured he wasn't going to do anything violent right away, so might as well recycle the cell. They're really tight for space down there.
Dr. Balis: When was he released?
Sgt. Keefe: Wednesday night. But he was cool, they said he didn't seem upset or anything by the time he left. I sort of figured he'd get in touch with you. I told him about the private berth you'd reserved for him--I guess he never called?
Dr. Balis: Not so far. I really wish you'd let me in to see him at the time, though. He's seriously disturbed, and could have benefited from a period of isolation combined with intensive therapy.
Sgt. Keefe: Sorry, it's a logistics thing. San Bruno's like another world, really. Once they're down there, it's hard even to get them back in time for their court dates. Maybe when we get the new computers...
Dr. Balis: I understand. I just hope I can get in touch with him soon.
Sgt. Keefe: Before the next full moon?
Dr. Balis: Yes.
Sgt. Keefe: Well, I'll let you know if I see him again.
Dr. Balis: Thanks, I'd appreciate that. Goodbye, Sergeant Keefe.
Sgt. Keefe: Goodbye, Doctor Balis.
