Alberta’s Chief Medical Examiner is asking Albertans to take a close look at the release of a photo of an unidentified man whose body was found in the summer.





The naked body was found near Prince’s Island Park along the Bow River on Aug. 4 and all efforts to identify him have failed.





Dr. Sam Andrews, assistant chief medical examiner, said yesterday the M.E.’s office is releasing a photograph of the man in hopes someone can identify him.





“We hope somebody in Alberta recognizes him and comes forward or could give us some tips in the right direction,” Andrews said yesterday.





Police have already ruled out foul play in the John Doe death, but the cause of death hasn’t been determined yet.





The man was believed to be between 50 and 60 years old, 5-ft.-7, 189 lbs. with brown curly hair and graying temples.





If anyone has information they are asked to call the medical examiner’s office at 297-8123.
