Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2015 at 4:10 PM

San Francisco authorities have not yet identified the body pulled from the waters at Lake Merced last month. They did however, confirm today that it was a woman's body. 

According to Bay City News, the body pulled from the waters on Jan, 10 was that of a "light-skinned" female. 

Christopher Wirowek, acting administrator of the medical examiner's office, told the news wire that because the body had been in the water for an extended period of time, it's been hard to determine the identification. However, medical authorities are using DNA records to help close this case. 

On the afternoon Jan. 10, police were called out TPC Harding Park on a report of the body found in the lake. There's been no information about the circumstances of the death.

  • 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.'"
