The BC Coroners Service is asking for the public’s assistance in its efforts to identify a male who was found deceased 20 years ago.
The male was found in a wooded area along the TransCanada Highway (Highway 1) at the 15th Street exit in West Vancouver. It is estimated that he had died in the late summer or early fall of 1995.
The individual is described as a white male, about 50 to 65 years old, and 165 to 173 cm tall (5’5” to 5’8”). At the time of his death he was wearing a dark blue padded jacket, a light coloured shirt with red stripes, jeans and black Riddell-brand running shoes.
At some time during his life, the male had suffered severe trauma resulting in several broken bones. His nose had been broken and he had suffered a head injury which may have resulted in scarring on the right side of his head. Healed fractures were also noted to the right elbow, right upper leg, and several ribs. Based on the amount of healing, it is possible these injuries all resulted from a single major incident.
Anyone with information that may help identify this individual is asked to contact the Special Investigations Unit of the BC Coroners Service by phone at 1-877-660-5077 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
