OPP Commissioner Vince Hawkes says he is confident they will be able to identify remains found in Algonquin Park in 1980, thanks to a 3-D facial reconstruction. There have been 36 fresh tips in the case since the clay model was unveiled in late July. Forensic analysis suggests the man was between 18 and 29 years of age and had blonde hair that may have been pulled back in a pony tail.
Evidence gathered at the scene and a stamp found in a wallet suggest his death occurred between 1971 and 1978. Anyone with information on this case can call a dedicated missing persons hotline at 1-877-934-6363.
Police have released a 3D model in the hopes of closing a case on file since 1980. The 3D facial reconstruction was released during a media conference at Orillia OPP Headquarters this morning, modeled using the remains of a man found near a trail in Algonquin Park, some 37 years ago. It’s believed the remains belonged to a man between the ages of 18 and 29, and while other objects were found nearby during subsequent searches, no identification has ever been made. It’s believed he died sometime between 1971 and 1978. Anyone with information on this case can call a dedicated missing persons hotline at 1-877-934-6363.
