San Francisco police are investigating the mysterious death of 68-year-old Robert Slivoski, whose badly decomposed body was found inside an apartment building last week on Polk Street.  Medical authorities identified Slivoski's body today, but say they will need more time to determine how the San Francisco man was killed.

On Thursday morning, neighbors called police to report an extremely bad odor at a residence on the 2000 block of Polk in the Polk Gulch neighborhood. Police arrived to find Slivoski's body inside an apartment. They have yet to determine when he was killed or how long his body had been sitting there.

Police have been interviewing neighbors around the area and were hoping to capture some evidence on surveillance cameras if there were any planted around the building.

Slivoski's death marks San Francisco's 50th homicide this year.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
