San Francisco police are investigating another suspicious death, this one involving a 75-year-old woman who was found floating in the Hyde Street Harbor at Fisherman's Wharf Friday afternoon.

The Medical Examiner's Office this morning identified the woman as Feng Xian Yang Ng, a San Francisco resident.

According to Officer Gordon Shyy, police were called to the harbor about noon Friday where they found Ng, who was declared dead at the scene. Police have not yet said how she died, but have deemed her death "suspicious."

"It's still under investigation," Shyy told us.

The Hyde Street Harbor opened in 2001 to accommodate the seasonal fishing fleets that deliver herring, salmon, and crab to the fish processors at Pier 45, according to the port website.

  • 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.'"
