The B.C. Coroners Service is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man whose remains were discovered in West Vancouver two decades ago.

The man was found in a wooded area along the TransCanada Highway near the 15th Street exit. They estimate the man died in the late summer or early fall of 1995.

In a statement, the Coroners Service described the man as Caucasian, about 50 to 65 years old and 165 to 173 centimetres tall. He was wearing a dark blue padded jacket, light-coloured shirt with red stripes, jeans and black Riddell running shoes at the time of his death.

The coroner said at some point, the man suffered a trauma that resulted in several broken bones, a broken nose, and scars on the right side of his head.

Anyone with information on the cold case is asked to contact the B.C. Coroners Service at 1-877-660-5077 or bccs.siu@gov.bc.ca.
