A 23-year-old man found dead Wednesday in a residential hotel in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood has been declared a homicide victim, police said today.

Miriah Qualls was found dead at the Golden Eagle Hotel at 402 Broadway, according to police spokeswoman Lt. Lyn Tomioka. A neighbor at the hotel last saw Qualls on Monday.

After an autopsy on Thursday, the medical examiner ruled the case a homicide, according to Tomioka. Cause of death was deemed blunt force trauma.

Qualls referred to himself as a woman, though the medical examiner has ruled him to be anatomically male, Tomioka said.

No arrests have been made.

The homicide is the 46th reported this year by San Francisco police.
