Body of Missing Man Found on Burnaby Mountain


Body remains of a man found on the morning of November 19 on Burnaby Mountain have been identified today as that of thirty-seven year old Paul Hoyer.

Discovered by a walker on the Burnwood Trail who called the Burnaby Mounties upon coming upon the scene, this is considered an unrelated event to the Kinder-Morgan pipeline protests that are currently taking place at Burnaby Mountain. The protest site was 500 metres from the body remains of Vancouver man Hoyer.

Reported missing last week, Hoyer’s death is not considered suspicious by police. He is said to have suffered from a previous brain injury, and was last seen on Burrard and Davie Street.
