More than 80 people gathered in front of San Francisco City Hall February 26, calling for an investigation into the death of Jaxon Sales.

Chants for justice echoed while, behind the crowd, visitors paid their respects to an altar of flowers and childhood photos of Jaxon Sales underneath a bare sycamore tree at Civic Center Plaza.Angie Aquino-Sales and Jim Sales organized the gathering for their gay son with the help of the GLBTQ+ Asian Pacific Alliance and API Equality Northern California in order to elevate their demands that city officials reexamine the circumstances around their son's death and to provide mourners with a space to come together.

The B.A.R. obtained a copy of Jaxon Sales' autopsy report from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner stating that the 20-year-old had died on the morning of March 2, 2020 from an accidental overdose of an acute mixed drug intoxication, including gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), cocaine, and methamphetamine.
