Thank you so much for your help today in seeking identification for the John Doe at San Francisco General Hospital.

The search was successful and the patient has been identified.

His next of kin came forward after being informed by a neighbor, who had heard about the search from the media.

This is a good outcome for a sad story.

San Francisco authorities need your help identifying this man who was brought to San Francisco General Hospital yesterday morning with severe injuries. 

Original story: Hospital staff says the man was found on Duboce and Church Streets on Sunday at approximately 7:30 a.m.  "He was critically hurt and the hospital is urgently seeking his family members. All of the procedural channels to identify him have been exhausted with no result so far," says Rachael Kagan, spokeswoman for the hospital. 

The "John Doe" is described as a 6-foot white man in his 20s or 30s, and weighing 146 pounds. He has dyed blond hair and green eyes. He has no tattoos or distinguishing marks. He was wearing pants and shoes and had no wallet or identification on him when he was found.

  • 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.'"
