Cochrane, AB – On May 5th, 2016 at 1:40 p.m., Cochrane RCMP responded to a report of a deceased male at a remote location near the intersection of Highway 22 and Highway 8, near Cochrane. There were indications the deceased male had been there for some time including being clothed for winter weather conditions. The investigation revealed that the deceased male was Sehyun Edmund Lim who also goes by Edmund Lim. He is 19 years old and was a resident of Calgary, Alberta.

Sehyun Edmund LimRCMP Major Crimes is continuing to seek the public’s assistance in tracking the movements of Sehyun Edmund Lim who left his residence located in SW Calgary, Alberta on January 21, 2016 and did not return.  When he left his residence he was clothed for the weather we would normally experience in January. Lim frequently walked and was known to use public transit.   Based on his last known address and location of his remains, investigators believe it is possible he travelled westbound out of the city using Highway 8, Highway 1, or Highway 1A.  It is unknown how Lim reached his final destination and police have not ruled out the possibility that he hitchhiked or was given a ride.

The RCMP Major Crimes is releasing photographs of the clothing as it was worn by Edmund LIM in hopes of identifying anyone that may remember seeing him,  giving him a ride, or communicating with him during the winter of 2016.   At the time of his discovery, Edmund LIM was wearing miss-matched gloves and was using commercial brand hand warmers which may have been purchased by him or provided to him.
