Coroner hopes tattoos will lead to the identification of deceased man

The identity of a man whose body washed up on Valdes Island more than seven months ago remains a mystery, and B.C. Coroners Service hopes that his distinctive tattoos can give some leaders.

A man's body between 20 and 40 years washed up on the small island south of Gabriola Island on June 23, 2018.

The deceased man was five feet 10 and of average building with light skin and short black hair. He had several distinctive tattoos, including the word "yummy" written in graffiti-style writing on his right abdomen and a Kottonmouth Kings logo between his shoulder blades.

He had green shorts, a red and black tartan fleece shirt and a silicone bracelet with the words "Donate Life" on it. He also had a ball necklace and a Texas-style belt buckle.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call the B.C. Coroners Service Special Investigation Unit at 1-877-660-5077, cites case number 2018-1023-0072, or Gabriola Island RCMP at 250-247-8333, cites case number 2018-377.
