Man Mysteriously Dies at Pacific Heights Home

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 3:59 PM


Police officers found a dead body in a Pacific Heights apartment Sunday night, and the medical examiner has said the death appeared suspicious, according to SFPD Officer Gordon Shyy.

Today, the Medial Examiner identified the man as Elias Michael, a 47-year-old dermatologist who worked in Cow Hollow. A little more than 12 hours after SFPD responded to the call at 2030 Vallejo Avenue, officers detained and questioned Michael's roommate.

SFPD has not disclosed the cause of death, pending the medical examiner's autopsy. However, the Chron reported this afternoon that the building maintenance manager at Michael's apartment, "said officers had told him Michael died after a complication with drugs, possibly an overdose."

  • 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.'"
