A body found by a hunter in central Saskatchewan over the weekend has been identified as a missing man Saskatoon police said was tied to gang activity.
RCMP say the remains, found Sunday in the Swanson, Sask., area, are those of Barry Heimbecker.
Heimbecker, a 32-year-old Saskatoon man, was reported missing in March alongside 21-year-old Neilson Kakum. Both men had associations with street gang activity, Saskatoon police said.
Kakum was located alive days later.
Heimbecker’s death is not believed to be suspicious, according to RCMP.
