San Francisco police are investigating the death of a 16-year-old girl found just blocks from the Civic Center, officials said Sunday.

Paramedics responded to the 600 block of Minna Street at around 6:33 A.M. Friday after receiving a report of a possible overdose. The San Francisco County Medical Examiner responded and declared the girl's death suspicious. Authorities identified the girl on Tuesday as Victorria Moran-Hidalgo, of Stanislaus County.

The police department's homicide unit is investigating, and no arrests have been made.

Supervisor Matt Haney, whose district includes the area where the girl was found, told The Standard on Monday that he did not have any other updates on the case.

The area where the girl was found has been a source of intense focus in recent weeks as city officials attempt to combat the city's drug overdose epidemic. The scene of the investigation is just a five-minute walk to Civic Center, where a linkage center was created to help people connect with drug treatment and housing services.

Anyone with information about the girl's death can call the SFPD Tip Line at 415.575.4444 or text TIP411 and begin the text message with "SFPD." Tipsters may remain anonymous.
