The BC Coroners Service is working with RCMP to confirm the identity of the person whose remains were found on Mount Seymour. The coroner service was notified of the presence of unidentified human remains at a remote backcountry location on Mount Seymour on September 1.
“We are investigating to determine how, where, when and by what means the individual came to their death but have no further details to provide,” a media spokesperson for the service said.
The BC Coroners Service said the RCMP is investigating, but will not be releasing that information publicly. “Due to privacy, per the Coroners Act and provincial privacy legislation, the BC Coroners Service does not publicly confirm or release.”
Both the RCMP and the BC Coroners Service are investigating. “We are waiting for the coroner to ID that person and we will go from there,” said Sgt. Peter DrVries of North Vancouver RCMP.
