CONFIRMED: Police identify body found on the weekend as that of Boucher's

The missing Whitby man left home on January 13th and hadn't been seen since

Police in Whitby have positively identified the body found on the weekend as that of Jeffrey Boucher.

The 52 year old man was last seen when he left home for a jog on January 13th.

Durham Regional Police say the Coroner's office was able to positively identify the body on Monday night.

They still haven't released a cause of death but they say foul play is not suspected and there were no signs of trauma to the body.

That being said, NEWSTALK 1010 learned that the area near where Boucher's body was found became extremely icy this winter, thanks to the cold temperatures, but was still a popular place for joggers.

About three hours before the body was found, a right sneaker thought to belong to the avid runner was discovered. It matched a left shoe that had turned up in about the same spot on March 11th.

Boucher was a geography teacher at Bowmanville High School and was also the leader of the ski club at the school.
