    "Toronto police trying to identify dead man found wearing disposable hazmat suit in tent"


    "According to Meaghan Gray, with Toronto police corporate communications, officers worked closely with a forensic pathologist to create a profile of the man. They believe he was between 32 and 54 years old, tall, black, with short curly hair.

    Ms. Gray says it is uncommon for an investigation into an unidentified body to get to this stage. This is the first time Det.Charles Ricci, the officer in charge of the case, has had to request help from the public in identifying remains".

    Pics included of all the items found with the unidentified man, especially interesting, imo, besides the haz-mat suit, is the Neil Young t shirt.

    Great find! Did you call it in? From the available information it seems as if he may have passed away as early as summer/autumn 2013 so quite possible he was living rough in the Port Lands in spring/summer of that year.

    " The unidentified man had no identification on his body and an autopsy did not provide any further information on his identity.

    Ricci says a biological profile of the man was done and his DNA was entered into a database but police are still waiting for results.

    Police describe the man as black, between the ages of 32 and 54, standing between five foot ten and six foot four inches tall with short, curly black hair.

    Ricci says the reason for the wide age range is due to the extensive decomposition of the body when it was discovered.

    The man was also wearing a Tyvek brand disposable coverall suit, typically worn in cleaning, industrial or laboratory work.


    Police say there was also a black Neil Young concert T-shirt, blue jeans with a black engraved belt, grey flip-flops and some personal hygiene items located inside of the tent."

    The Neil Young t-shirt seems to be from the 2008 tour, which I can't imagine would be any great surprise to LE since it'll be on the back. I just wanted to satisfy my curiosity as I'm a big fan.

    I LOVE Neil Young! That's what caught my attention.

    Hope this poor man gets ID'd soon.

    For a moment, thought this uid male was identified...
    The dates are close, but no cigar. This mp was also located by the water area and as a poet, thought he might enjoy Neil Young too.
    Point is, someone must be missing this man and perhaps trying in vain to find him. Hope he is identified.

    Bumping with this unrelated to this UID news item, but noting because of a curious coincidence with these two uid men , each found well across the globe from each other.
    Both were found with identical Neil Young t shirts!
