BC Coroner is asking for public’s help to identify a man whose remains were found in the Oyster River near Campbell River.
The remains were found on August 4 by people snorkelling in the river.
They were lodged in a pothole near the Island Highway.
Preliminary examination has determined the remains belong to a man, between 21 and 35 years of age, most likely in his 20s.
He was between 163 cm and 171 cm tall.
He most probably died within the past two months.
He has two fractured clavicles 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 “SPLIT”logo on the front.
Anyone with information which may help identify this man is asked to call regional coroner or Campbell River RCMP.
