Police Release Sketch of Suspect in Escalon Murder

San Francisco police have released a sketch of a person of interest in the recent homicide of gay city resident Steven "Eriq" Escalon.

Escalon, 28, was found "bound, gagged, and deceased" at 6 p.m. June 12 in his bedroom at 5004 Diamond Heights Boulevard, police said in a bulletin released Tuesday, July 31. Sergeant Scott Warnke, of the San Francisco Police Department's homicide unit, hasn't said how Escalon appears to have been killed.

The bulletin says the suspect was seen getting into a cab with Escalon in front of the bar 440 Castro at about 1:30 a.m. the day he was killed. Escalon had visited "a few" bars in the neighborhood, police said.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches, with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt.

Police have suggested that whoever killed Escalon stole a TV and other items from his home.
