Airbnb said it would pay five victims’ funeral expenses in the San Francisco Bay Area. Brian Chesky is the co-founder and CEO who vowed to have the rental homes. The property’s owner thought he had rented it to just 12 people and saw the party unfold over the home’s security cameras before the police.
