A dead body was discovered Monday in a trash can in the Dogpatch, but police say that they do not consider the death to be a homicide.
Bay City News reports that officers with the San Francisco Police Department were called to the area of 20th and Minnesota Streets, which is near Esprit Park, at around 10 p.m. Monday.
They arrived to discover the body of an adult male in a trash container behind a building, the Chron reports.
KRON 4 reports that the San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office will be conducting an autopsy to determine the cause of death, but according to SFPD spokesperson Officer Officer Grace Gatpandan, "The death is not being investigated as a homicide."
But that doesn't mean the case's status might not change in the future, SFPD spokesperson Officer Giselle Talkoff tells the Chron. “It has not been declared a homicide," she confirmed to the paper, "but that’s still under investigation.”
