With help from the public, Saanich Police have been able to find a pair of shoes and backpack belonging to 30-year-old Victoria man Andrew Michael Sidor.
Sidor was found deceased in the driveway of a home at Crease Avenue and Wascana Drive in Saanich on Saturday, August 17th.
On Monday, police identified his body and stated that his family has been notified of his death.
They also released photos from surveillance footage in which Sidor was seen carrying a backpack and wearing white, or light coloured, lace up runners.
Because these items were not initially located, police released an appeal to the public to help them find them – an appeal that resulted in the missing backpack and shoes being found in the area.
“Support from the community has been tremendous and we want to thank all
those who have taken the time to contact us” said Sgt. Julie Fast.
According to the latest update, investigators are still working to reconstruct Sidor’s movements over the two days prior to his death.
However, they are still looking for more information from any witnesses who may have seen or heard anything.
