June 12, 2018

Police are investigating another unexplained death of a woman on the grounds of San Francisco General Hospital, according to an article on the NBC Bay Area  website.

The discovery comes one week after a 75-year-old woman's body was found in the stairwell of an engineering building on the hospital grounds.

The second woman was being held on a 72-hour psychiatric evaluation hold before she was found dead. 

Sources say she was being treated on a bed in a hallway. SFPD homicide investigators and the medical examiner’s office are trying to determine why she died. The woman, who was in her 40s, has not been publicly identified.
