    Hi Patience, just letting you know the remains were found in Woolwich Township not Waterloo.

    More specifically the road that runs beside Belgian Nursery ( Breslau )

    I thought there was already a thread on these remains... not sure, though.


    ETA: I found where I had come across these remains before, it was on Abt's thread: CANADA Canada - Alexander Byron Abt, 45, Puslinch Ontario, 6 Oct 2008 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community



    Abt has been ruled out in connection with these remains, however - will go update that thread now.

    I couldn't find one, either... maybe it was in the wrong forum. Or I could be imagining things, which is not completely unlikely.

    I wonder if they are looking at Sandy Abt for this one.

    ETA: Whoops - yes, I see Abt is listed as ruled out. I should have read the article closer before mentioning.

    Hi WhyaDuck, he has been ruled out.

    Police have been able to rule out two men who have been reported missing from the area:

    Alexander Byron Abt, known as Sandy to his friends, has been missing since Oct. 7, 2008. The 44-year-old was last seen working at Schneiderís Refinishing on Forwell Road.

    David MacDermott, 30, has been missing since 2002. His friends and family last saw him in the days leading up to Nov. 9, 2002. His case was recently raised to the status of a missing person with suspicious circumstances, or a potential homicide.

    It's my bad habit of having the article open on one tab and posting on the other - I will try to refrain from commenting in the future until I have the details clear.

    Thanks for pointing out it out, though.

    ETA: I really wasn't trying to be rude - just pointing out that I had already corrected the initial error. The ETA was also in my quote in your post, so I wasn't sure if maybe you had just missed it. Sorry if I came off as brusque. That was not my intention.

    That is sad. I live in downtown Kitchener, but I've never seen him. My first thought is with the suspenders is that it might be a gentleman who sells flags from his bike on Courtland at the plaza on Courtland/Shelley. But it wasn't. Most of the homeless people downtown are quite nice. No one deserves an outcome like that.
