Posted By on Mon, Jan 28, 2013 at 3:41 PM


San Francisco police say the man who was brutally beaten in SOMA 10 days ago has died from his head injuries. He's been identified as 34-year-old Scott Nau, of San Francisco.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, police were called to the 1500 block of Mission near 11th Street on Jan. 18 at about 11:45 p.m. on reports of a stabbing. When the cops arrived, they found Nau, but he hadn't been stabbed.

Rather, he was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a massive head injury and remained there until last night when he died, Esparza said.

Police determined that his death was a homicide, however no suspect description was given at this time. Nau's significant other told police that his credit cards and cellphone were missing.

Nau's death marks the city's third fourth homicide this year.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to contact the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 and include SFPD in the subject line.

  • 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.'"
