* Craig Ogans is suspected of accessing a bank account of a man who was found dead in San Francisco

Police have identified a man who has allegedly been accessing the bank account of a man who was found dead from an apparent homicide in his apartment in San Francisco’s Mission District on Thursday. Craig Ogans, 52, is being sought as a person of interest in the death of 74-year-old Joseph Williams after allegedly using Williams’ bank account at various ATMs and a Target store in San Francisco and the Bay Area, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said today. 

Williams was found dead by a family member at his home in the 2900 block of Folsom Street at about 4:50 p.m. Thursday. The medical examiner’s office has since ruled Williams’ death a homicide although investigators are not yet releasing what caused the death, Andraychak said. After the death, police released information about a suspect who was allegedly using Williams’ bank account and released a picture of him, and members of the public have since identified him as Ogans. 

Ogans is not yet being considered a suspect in the homicide, but merely a person of interest in the case, Andraychak said. He is described as a black man who is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 125 pounds, and he has black hair and blue eyes, police said. He is believed to be driving a stolen 1995 silver four-door Mercedes-Benz with a California license plate No. 4KUC615. The car was not stolen from Williams. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Ogans should call 911.
