I'm so glad he has been identified. To a relative of "Dave" in case you happen to come across this thread, our hearts go out to you.
"John Doe case in Saskatchewan solved with DNA evidence 26 years later"
They are not releasing his name. But this one has been solved!
The Saskatchewan Coroners Service is set to confirm the identity of a person in a John Doe case from 1995.
The announcement, scheduled for 10 a.m. CT Thursday, will also include information on the investigation, according to a news release sent from the province on Wednesday.
The Coroners Service provided few specifics in Wednesday's news release, aside from saying the news conference will be about "the investigation and positive identification of a John Doe case dating from 1995."
How amazing that after 26 years through the modern expertise of Othram Labs.; and the foresight of the coroner's office in preserving samples, that this young man Michael Kirov (Lewis) was finally id'ed for the sake of his family; and all who followed his case. The Saskatchewan longtime coroner must be relieved, as he had wanted the identity back for this last case before he retired! Condolences to Michael's cousins and all who cared about him. It is sad to think about this young man, gone too soon.
