Man found dead in Castro identified

A man found dead in San Francisco’s Castro district Tuesday, July 28 has been identified as James Welch, 38.

The news site MissionLocal, which was first to report the death, has said that Welch, who was found at Noe and 18th streets, was homeless, but the medical examiner’s office couldn’t confirm that with the Bay Area Reporter. An investigator at the agency would only say that Welch was a San Francisco resident.

The medical examiner’s office isn’t likely to release the cause and manner of death for several months.

The B.A.R. reached out to several agencies and individuals about Welch’s death, but hasn’t yet received responses in most cases.

Police haven’t reported information indicating foul play was involved.
