wish we had info about height, if any hair was still on the remains, etc. Of course, can't come to any definitive conclusions, but his pants size (32/32) is pretty small, so I wouldn't expect him to be very tall, and on the skinny side.
'within 10 years' PMI is also vague, but I'm guessing he was likely skeletal, so PMI could be no more recent than a couple months...
 
Is this the same company as the t-shirt? About

In the about section it says they started in 1987 and it appears they make merchandise for brands and companies, retailers as well. Was there any printing on the shirt? They make licensed products (Disney, Fortnight etc). Idk if that helps to ID or not.
 
Now on RCMP!
This individual was of European descent (Caucasian) and died during the last ten years (but before the 2023 spring floods).

So...DLC is now somewhere between ~2013 and April 2023. I'm guessing they are assuming his remains were dislodged due to the floods.

Not necessarily correct regarding the height & size. I often wear 32/32, and I’m a shade over 6 feet tall & 185 lbs. Sometimes a 32” inseam is a bit short for me, but often it’s just right, and I’m a fairly long legged 6 feet at that. And a 32” waste is perfect on me. So he could easily be 6 feet or even 6’1” and 180-190 lbs.

very true! i think i forgot that men often have proportionally shorter legs (i wear a 32" inseam and im 5'5"). I was hoping a height estimate would be listed on the rcmp site, but I guess not... I wonder if the remains were incomplete? Still though, they can estimate (not perfect, but better than nothing) height from the length of long bones.
 
If my research is accurate (basing it off the logo used in Mad Engine's corporate websites) the t-shirt dates to late 2019 at the oldest. Most of their licensed shirts seem to have the property logo at the back of the collar but they do have some seasonal/generic unlicensed designs that use the Mad Engine logo. I found at least one such shirt on Poshmark et al with tags from Kohl's.
