The body of a 33-year-old Whitehorse man was found early Monday afternoon in the Takhini area of Whitehorse.

The Yukon Coroner’s Service has identified him as Terry Douglas Ollie.

Last Sunday, Whitehorse RCMP received a report he had gone missing.

He had not been seen nor heard from since early last Saturday evening, when he had been expected to return home.

“The death is not considered suspicious and RCMP continue to assist Yukon Coroner’s Service as our investigation continues,” the service said Wednesday afternoon.

“Yukon Coroner’s Service extends our condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Ollie and the communities of Whitehorse and Ross River.”

“Police investigated all leads provided from friends and family, followed up with possible witnesses, and conducted patrols and enquiries in areas where he had ties and connections,” the RCMP said Wednesday afternoon.

“Police were alerted to the discovery of the body on the afternoon of July 19. There is no risk to the general public, and police have notified the family of the deceased.”

My sincerest condolences to the loved ones of Mr. Ollie.

Interesting that the name of the deceased has been identified by age, sex and name, however the public can't know any details of covid fatalities. Think about that.
