Assistance sought to identify a deceased male (1976)

File # 1976-11544

On June 23, 1976, crew members from Government dredging vessel Samson V found a man’s body floating in the south arm of the Fraser River near the No. 4 Road dyke. Richmond RCMP responded and initiated an investigation to identify the deceased and to determine the cause of his death.

The male was described as:

  • light-skinned male of Aboriginal descent
  • blue eyes and gray hair
  • late 40’s to early 50’s
  • 5′ 9″ tall
  • Weighing between 170-200 pounds

He was wearing size 36 jeans, two (2) pairs of socks (green nylon and grey wool), and a single size 9 leather slip-on boot.

Medical evidence suggested that he underwent spinal fusion surgery somewhere in North America, perhaps during the 1960’s.

An autopsy revealed that the male’s rear molars were missing. The pathologist determined that cause of death was due to drowning. There was no indication of foul play.

Files relating to missing males around the time were cross-referenced but no matches were found. Fingerprint and dental record matching have been unsuccessful.

This file remains open with the Richmond RCMP Serious Crime Unit. Investigators are seeking the public’s help for any information that may assist us in identifying this male. Any information or inquiries can be directed to Corporal Bob Basanti at the Richmond RCMP Serious Crime Unit at 604-278-1212.
