Police are investigating the death of a woman in her home in the 900 block of Chestnut Street as a homicide. The potential victim was discovered dead in her residence at 4:25 a.m. Oct. 30 after the police received a call requesting someone check on the woman.

The Medical Examiner's office is not releasing any details about the woman; her method of death is unknown at this time.

If the woman was murdered, she would be the 38th homicide victim of the year -- and first since Amy Mustain was raped and allegedly murdered in the Mission District's Krishna Motel all the way back in September.

  • 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.'"
