Police investigate death of homeless man in FiDi as suspicious

San Francisco police said the death of a man whose body was located in an alley in San Francisco's Financial District this morning is being investigated as foul play.

San Francisco police spokesman Albie Esparza said the department's homicide unit is investigating the death as suspicious, but did not say what injuries the man suffered.

San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said a 911 call came in from someone who unsuccessfully attempted to rouse a man in an alley tucked behind buildings near the intersection of Montgomery and Sutter streets shortly before 7:30 a.m.

Emergency crews arrived at Trinity Place near Hardie Place where the man's body was located and declared him deceased, Talmadge said.

She said the man appears to have been a homeless individual and that the cause of his death was not immediately known.Bay Area NewsFinancial DistrictSan Francisco Fire DepartmentSan Francisco Police Department
