The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office moments ago told SF Weekly that the autopsy for the man discovered dead on a bus in a Muni yard is scheduled for today or tomorrow.

Christopher Feasel, a 37-year-old San Franciscan with no fixed address, was found lifeless in the back of a No. 5 bus at 12:45 a.m. on Saturday morning at the Muni yard at 949 Presidio. There were no signs of any foul play.

KTVU-TV reported that it is unclear whether Feasel expired on the bus during its run or wandered into the Muni yard, entered the bus, and then died. If it's the former, that would mean the Muni driver didn't do a very competent job while giving his or her bus the mandated final once-over before retiring for the night.

The Medical Examiner's office expects it will be several weeks before the cause of death is determined.

  • 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.'"
