BURNABY - The BC Coroners Service, assisted by the Campbell River RCMP Detachment and BC
Police Missing Persons Centre, is seeking the public's help in identifying a man whose remains were found in the Oyster River near Campbell River.
On Aug. 4, 2014, people snorkelling in the Oyster River came upon human remains lodged in a pothole near the Island Highway. The snorkelers notified authorities, and the RCMP dive team was able to recover the remains.
Preliminary anthropological examination has determined the remains to be those of a male,
between 21 and 35 years of age, most likely in his 20s. He was between 163 cm and 171 cm tall (5 feet, 4 inches to 5 feet, 7 inches). He died within the past six months, most probably within the past two months. In the past, he had fractured both clavicles (collarbones), probably in separate incidents, and his nose had also been broken at some time in the past.
Clothing found with the remains included a green t-shirt with the emblem "SPLIT" on the front.
Anyone with information which may help identify this man is asked to call:
o Regional Coroner Matt Brown at 250 356-9133

MISSING/UNIDENTIFIED PERSON - MALPEQUE BAY

Date Posted: June 8, 2010
RCMP Major Crime Section are investigating the following:

The body of the deceased male was discovered by a local fisherman in the Malpeque Bay 13 years ago on June 7th, 1997. The investigation at the time failed to identify the individual. The cause of death was determined as a "possible drowning." No match has been found with any missing person cases since the body was recovered.

On June 7, 2010 members of the RCMP Major Crime Section, assisted by the PEI
Coroners Office, exhumed the body of an unidentified person. The man, listed as John Doe, was taken from the Peoples Cemetery in Charlottetown for forensic examination to help determine identity and cause of death.

RCMP are hopeful that this examination, along with the assistance of the general public, will be able to determine the name of the deceased and circumstances of the death.

Description of the victim:
Gender: Male
Height: 181 cm (5'11")

Found wearing:
  • black leather belt with large chain shaped "Jack Daniels" belt buckle, belt for size 36 inch waist
  • blue jeans "Broadway"
  • black leather zipper style boots size 10, white sport socks
  • initials "G.L." written by marker on tag on underwear.

    See attached pictures of associated clothing.

    The origin of the victim remains unknown and since he had been in the water for a number of weeks it is possible that he may have drifted with the tides. The deceased was wearing jeans with a bilingual logo and while he may be from Prince Edward Island, it is entirely possible that he may have originated from Quebec, Gaspe, northern New Brunswick or the Magdalen Islands.
