The Coroner’s Office has confirmed the suspicion that the body found on the Lake Ontario shoreline over the weekend was that of missing 52-year-old Whitby teacher, Jeffrey Boucher. Mr. Boucher was reported missing in mid-January, when he allegedly went for a routine run and never made it back. Police is unaware of what happened on that run that led to the death of teacher having 27-year experience at Bowmanville High School.
According to a statement issued by Durham Regional Police on Monday, it was said that “further lab tests are scheduled in hopes of determining the actual cause of death, however, those results may take several weeks to occur. No foul play is suspected and there were no signs of trauma to the body.” It was added that the Boucher’s family were informed on Saturday that a body is found that is suspected to be his. In a Facebook page devoted to co-ordinating community search efforts for her husband, Boucher’s wife, Krsiten, alleged that “he’s found. Sorry I don’t have the energy to write more.”
Previously in March, Boucher’s running shoes were found along the Whitby waterfront, including one just hours before his body was found. In a Facebook post by Boucher’s daughter, Katja, to commemorate her father’s birthday, she wrote that “he taught me to never refuse going on a spontaneous adventure because they create some of the best memories,” adding that “I miss you so much.”
