A reconstructed likeness of a man whose remains were found in 2005 near a retention pond in Vaughan has been created in hopes of identifying the deceased.
Last year, Detective Constable Duncan Way, a forensic artist with the Barrie Police Service Forensic Identification Unit, assisted York Regional Police in their attempts to identify the man by creating a 3-D reconstruction of what he was believed to look like at the time of his death.
The likeness is being released in the hope someone will recognize him.
The deceased was white, believed to be 50 to 80 years of age, about 5’7” to 6’1”. He was missing upper and lower teeth and had long grey hair and a beard. It’s believed that residents in the area where he was found, or others who frequent it, may have come to be familiar with him.
Anyone who can assist in identifying the deceased is asked to call the York Regional Police Homicide Unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7865, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
