the OPP

On April 16, Dryden OPP officers were called to investigate suspected human remains found along Highway 17 about 10 km west of Vermilion Bay.
The remains were located by a Ministry of Natural Resources’ fire crew who, in turn, contacted the OPP.
The investigation involved the assistance of the OPP’s North West Region Forensic Identification Unit and OPP Crime Unit personnel, under the direction of Det. Insp. Peter Loree of the OPP’s Criminal Investigation Branch.
A post-mortem examination was conducted in Toronto.
The deceased has been identified as Donald Bonner, 55, of Port Coquitlam, B.C.
The circumstances surrounding the death are being investigated but foul play is not suspected at this time.
