Saanich Police have identified the man found dead near Swan Lake Sanctuary in October after issuing a plea for help from the public.

The man’s body was found on October 12th and has since been identified as a missing person sought by VicPD.

“With the next of kin notifications now complete, we offer our condolences to the family. At this point, the BC Coroners Service will assume conduct of the file,” said Det.-Sgt. Damian Kowalewich in a media release.

The body was found in the area of Haynes Road and Douglas Street, just a short distance away from the Saanich Police Department’s headquarters.

A nearby employee who wishes to remain anonymous told Victoria Buzz the area was swarmed with detectives and investigators when the incident unfolded.

About a month later, police sought out the public’s help as to who the deceased man was, or any information that may help them in their investigation.

Police say the death is not considered suspicious.
