Human remains found at Sagkeeng identified





A jaw bone found on the Sagkeeng First Nation last week has been linked to a man who went missing from the community last year.

Powerview RCMP said Thursday the bone belonged to Daniel John Bunn, 43, who went missing Dec. 22, 2017.

RCMP said foul play is not suspected.

Bunn's remains were discovered by Larry Wassaykeesic, and his wife Robin Fontaine, on July 23, in a ravine near their backyard.

The human remains located in Fort Alexander on July 23, 2018, have been identified as Daniel John Bunn, 43-years of age. Powerview RCMP received a report of a missing person on December 5, 2017 for Bunn who last spoke with family in Powerview on November 26.

RCMP said foul play is not suspected.

Bunn's remains were discovered by Larry Wassaykeesic, and his wife Robin Fontaine, on July 23, in a ravine near their backyard.

Community members told the Free Press more than a week ago that they believed the remains were of Bunn. They said Bunn's body could have been where it was found if he had tried to cross the Winnipeg River near his parents' home.

Sagkeeng, a community of about 3,300, is located about 100 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.
