BC Coroners Service seeks public assistance to identify male

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:

Regional Coroner Matt Brown at 250 356-9133

Campbell River RCMP at 250 286-6221

Photos of the clothing recovered at the scene may be seen at:
