The Toronto Police Service is requesting the public’s assistance with identifying a man found deceased.
On Friday, July 26, 2002, the remains of an unidentified man were found in the area of the Don River at the Queen Street Bridge.
The man is described as 30 to 40 years old, 5'5", 217 lbs., with long black hair and a slight moustache. He was wearing a red t-shirt, a blue "Roots" sweater, brown cargo style pants, a black belt, white socks, and black and white running shoes. He had some loose change with him when located.
Recently the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service and Office of the Chief Coroner, with the assistance of both the Toronto Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police, undertook to have three variations of artist renditions completed of this man. Hopefully this will assist in someone recognizing him and bring some resolution to both his family and the investigation.
