City's First Homicide Victim of 2010 No Longer 'John Doe'

View Larger Map

The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office moments ago told SF Weekly that it has positively identified the “John Doe” found shot dead in the Excelsior in the wee hours of Jan. 3.

The doctors aren't quite ready to tell us the man's name — and have us tell you — however. The identity of the city's first homicide victim of the year is still being kept confidential pending notification of his family.

Obviously, we'll follow up. In the meantime, the city's final homicide victim of 2009 remains “Jane Doe No. 22.”

UPDATE: Identity released — see here.
