The UCSF Police Department is assisting the San Francisco Police Department which is investigating the death of Lynn Spalding Ford, who was found deceased on a stairwell at San Francisco General Hospital earlier this month.
We are all saddened by the loss of Lynn Spalding Ford, and we need your assistance in helping with the identification of a witness with information valuable to those investigating her death. UCSF Police and San Francisco Police are asking all UCSF and SFGH employees for their assistance identifying the witness described below:
On Friday, October 4, 2013 shortly before 7:30 a.m., an unknown male employee with hospital identification was admitted onto the fifth floor from the emergency exterior stairwell. This witness reported to a SFGH senior staff member that he had seen someone lying on the stairwell below. This information was then reported to the San Francisco Sheriff’s Office.
