Body iden­ti­fied as miss­ing tourist

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

WHISTLER, B.C. — A body found last month on the out­skirts of Whistler, B.C., has been iden­ti­fied as that of a visi­tor from Aus­tralia. A spokes­woman for the In­te­grated Homi­cide In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team says 19-year-old Jake Kermond had been stay­ing in the re­sort town since March. Po­lice say Kermond was last seen on the evening of April 26 when he left the Adara Ho­tel. Sgt. Stephanie Ash­ton says while the man’s death is sus­pi­cious, foul play hasn’t been con­firmed. Po­lice are ask­ing any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion about the young man’s dis­ap­pear­ance to call them. Kermond’s re­mains were found in an in­dus­trial area and he was last seen wear­ing a baggy green jacket, dark pants and a black and white base­ball cap.
