Family, Police Say Body Of Missing Vancouver Island Man Found Near Duncan, B.C.

The Canadian Press, 25 Oct, 2018 12:31 PM
    DUNCAN, B.C. — Police and the family of a British Columbia man who has been missing on Vancouver Island since mid-May confirm his body has been found.
     
     
    A statement posted on the Facebook site dedicated to finding Ben Kilmer says his body was found Oct. 17 in a remote area of Duncan, near the Chemainus River.
     
     
    Police say the body of the 41-year-old Victoria-area husband and father was found by a hiker, well outside the original search area.
     
     
    The RCMP says in a statement that foul play isn't suspected and the case has been turned over to the BC Coroners Service. 
     
     
    Kilmer's work van was found, with the engine still running and traces of blood inside, at the side of a rural road west of Duncan.
     
     
    The family statement says a private memorial is being planned.
     
     
    Kilmer's widow, Tonya, posted a separate statement on the Find Ben Kilmer Facebook page calling the news "agonizing."
     
     
    But she says the couple's children will "grow up knowing their daddy as (a) strong, fierce, tenacious, loving family man..." 
     
     
    Tonya Kilmer also thanks all those who have supported her and the couple's children during the five month search.
