VANCOUVER - The BC Coroners Service is asking for the public's help in identifying a man who was found dead in West Vancouver more than 20 years ago.

His body was discovered in a wooded area along the Trans-Canada Highway at the 15th Street exit.

The service estimates the man who was between 50 and 65 died in the late summer or early fall of 1995.

At the time of his death, he was wearing a dark blue padded jacket, a light-coloured shirt with red stripes, jeans and black Riddell-brand running shoes.

The service says that at some point in his life, the man suffered severe trauma resulting in several broken bones, including a fractured nose and a head injury.

Healed fractures were also noted on his right elbow, right upper leg and several ribs, and the service says it's possible they resulted from a single major incident.
