News release

Digby County RCMP have identified the human remains found on a beach in September.

On September 8, 2019, a body was found on the beach in Sandy Cove in Digby County. The RCMP worked with the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service and the remains have been successfully identified through DNA analysis. The deceased, a 43-year-old man from Saint John, New Brunswick, had been reported missing late last summer.

The investigation was included in an RCMP initiative in partnership with the New York Academy of Art to reconstruct the faces of Canadian unidentified human remains. For more information, visit: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/news/2020/rcmp-seeks-publics-help-identifyi....

The RCMP would like to thank the public for their assistance and retweets on social media. The circumstances of the death are not suspicious.

Our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time.
