Kind request of the ColdFacts Team

News - Saturday 09/05 - Cold Facts team

The RCMP recovery team returned safely to Resolute last night. The body they have found at the scene is passed into the care of the Coroner.

The families of Marc Cornelissen and Philip de Roo have both been asked for specific physical characteristics for the identification process.

The formalities need to be processed before an official statement can be given to the families by the Coroner. Until this official statement is released, we kindly ask members of the press to refrain from publishing reports, articles and/or statements suggesting the identity.

This is a very difficult time for the families involved, and we ask you to please respect their privacy and need for peace.

Thank you for your consideration,
The ColdFacts team
