The Yukon Coroner's Service says it has identified the remains as 59-year-old Kenneth Algar.


The Yukon Coroner's Service says it has identified the remains found in the Long Lake area of Whitehorse and foul play is not suspected. 

In a release issued this morning, the Coroner's Service says the remains have been identified as 59-year-old Kenneth Algar who was last seen leaving the Whitehorse General Hospital in September. 

Algar was a long-time resident of Whitehorse and a member of the Na-cho Nyak Dun First Nation and the Coroner's Service extends their condolences to his family and friends. 

An autopsy is scheduled at Vancouver General Hospital next week as the Coroner's Service continues its investigation.
