Authorities found the body of an adult man in the water near Marshall's Beach just south of the Golden Gate Bridge this afternoon.

U.S. Park police were called just before 1 p.m. where they found the body of a fully-dressed man; authorities are still out at the scene investigating, said spokeswoman Alex Picavet.

Picavet said the medical examiner has to determine the cause of death, but police do not believe it was an accident and it's "certainly not a surfer."

Picavet said as of now, it "presents similarly to a suicide victim."

  • 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.'"
