Jake Kermond was reported missing on April 30
Human body remains found in an industrial complex near Whistler, B.C. have been identified as missing Australian teen Jake Brian Kermond.
The 19-year-old was reported missing on April 30 after hotel staff found his room abandoned. Kermond had been staying in Whistler since March and he was last seen on April 26 when he left the Adara Hotel.
His body was found by a dirt biker in an industrial area on the outskirts of Whistler two months later on June 17.
"Although Jake's death remains suspicious, foul play has yet to be confirmed," said Sgt. Stephanie Ashton, media relations officer with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
Some of Kermond's belongings are missing, including personal items containing identification as well as his Armada skis with blue and orange bindings.
