After more than 20 years, a cold case in Victoria has finally been solved.

The B.C. Coroners service has identified 35-year-old Kenneth William Boseley, who died in October 1994.

At the time of death, Boseley could not be identified and attempts at genetic and other forms of identification were not successful.

It was not until a routine review of unidentified human remains cases several years later that the identification and disaster response unit noted this case as one where identification might be possible.

With help from the Victoria Police Department’s records section, they were able to confirm the identity.

Boseley’s family has ben notified of his death.
