Man’s body found

Missing man's body found in East Sooke Park after four months

Daniel Ganza

The body of a Victoria man who had been missing since late April was discovered in East Sooke Park on Aug. 18.

According to the BC Coroners Service, the body of 32-year-old Daniel Gandza was discovered by a hiker who had lost his way in the park.

Matt Brown, regional coroner, could not state the exact location, but said it was off the beaten trail.

He said the terrain made it difficult for the Sooke RCMP, Coroners Service and other agencies to recover the body.

The body was reported around 11 a.m., and was recovered by the late afternoon.

The Coroners Service is still investigating, but foul play is not suspected.
