Identity sought of man found deceased in river

We have been unable to identify a man found deceased in the river in June and although his death is believed to be non-criminal, we are releasing a composite sketch in hopes of generating information that may lead to his identification and the notification of his next of kin.

The man’s body was located on Sunday, June 12, 2022, on the east side of the Bow River, approximately 100 metres south of the Calf Robe Bridge. The Calgary Fire Department were called in to retrieve the body and the death was deemed not suspicious by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. All traditional methods of identifying the deceased have failed to yield any information about his identity.

“We know that somewhere out there a family is looking for answers about their loved one and we hope the public will be able to help us bring those answers home,” says Const. Gord Fraser of the CPS Missing Persons Team.

The man is believed to have been between 30 and 50 years old at the time of his death, 6’4” tall, approximately 245 pounds, with a light skin tone. He was bald and/or had a shaved head. It is believed he was experiencing homelessness at the time of his death.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to call the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
