Police officers found a dead body in a Pacific Heights apartment Sunday night, and the medical examiner has said the death appeared suspicious, according to SFPD Officer Gordon Shyy.

Today, the Medial Examiner identified the man as Elias Michael, a 47-year-old dermatologist who worked in Cow Hollow. A little more than 12 hours after SFPD responded to the call at 2030 Vallejo Avenue, officers detained and questioned Michael's roommate.

SFPD has not disclosed the cause of death, pending the medical examiner's autopsy. However, the Chron reported this afternoon that the building maintenance manager at Michael's apartment, "said officers had told him Michael died after a complication with drugs, possibly an overdose."
