  • Hung Huynh was found dead inside his home.

Medical authorities have identified the man who mysteriously died in his home Tuesday as 49-year-old Hung Huynh, a San Francisco resident.

Officer Gordon Shyy told us that other residents in the home discovered Huynh's body inside his house on the unit block of Yale Street. Initially, police deemed the death to be suspicious, but the coroner has since determined his death was a homicide.

Although the cause of death has not yet been determined, Shyy confirmed that Huynh was not shot. "Based upon the evidence at the scene, we suspect foul play," Shyy told the Ex.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.

  • 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.'"
