Police seek man in Bryan Higgins video

San Francisco police released video Thursday of a person of interest sought in connection with the deadly beating of a 31-year-old man near Duboce Park earlier this month, the city’s chief of police said.

Bryan Higgins, who also went by Feather Lynn, was found on the ground at about 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 10 near the corner of Duboce Avenue and Church Street and pronounced dead at 3:33 p.m. on Aug. 13, San Francisco General Hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.

Police are investigating Higgins’ death as a homicide and have not yet made any arrests in the case. San Francisco police Chief Greg Suhr said today that the person of interest in the video, taken from the dashboard of a taxi, appears to be a white male and has not yet been identified.

The video shows a male wearing a gray sweatshirt with a red shirt underneath and a baseball cap. The person appears to be arguing with another person near the Safeway grocery store located at Church Street and Duboce Avenue. Police have also released a photograph of the person of interest wearing a red shirt.

A memorial for Higgins was held in Duboce Park on Aug. 13 after he was taken off life support. Hundreds of mourners gathered for his memorial, standing in a massive circle that covered nearly half the park as Higgins was pronounced dead.

San Francisco General Hospital officials were initially unable to identify Higgins, who was found without a wallet or ID. However, media reports about his case led a neighbor to alert his family that he was in the hospital in critical condition.

Higgins married his husband, Brian Hagerty, at San Francisco City Hall in December. The two met in their native Michigan when they were 17 years old. They later moved to San Francisco together, Hagerty wrote on Facebook.

Higgins described himself on his Facebook profile as a “starving artist” who worked at Rosenberg Delicatessen at 276 Noe St., only a few blocks from where he was found.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has information about the homicide is urged to contact San Francisco police at (415) 575-4444.
