The BC Coroners Service and Vancouver Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a woman whose death occurred at the Broadway SkyTrain Station more than two decades ago.
On April 11, 1998, around 6 p.m., a Caucasian female who was believed to have been between the ages of 30 and 40 died at the Broadway SkyTrain Station in Vancouver. She was between 171 centimetres (5’6″) and 174 centimetres (5’7″), with dark brown hair and blue eyes, and had unpierced ears. She was wearing a long, red, wool coat with a hood, blue jeans and a pair of Cougar brand black boots. 
At the time of her death, a police artist put together a facial reconstruction image of what she may have looked like. The image available at the following link is a computer-generated approximation of this person and should not be considered an exact likeness: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/life-events/death/coroners-service/special-investigations-unit/unidentified-cases/1998-0240-0579
Information about this case, along with the approximately 180 unidentified human remains investigations that are open in B.C., is available on the BC Coroners Service’s unidentified human remains interactive viewer.
Anyone with information that may help identify this woman is asked to contact either the Vancouver Police Department at 604 717-3321, or the BC Coroners Service’s Special Investigations Unit at 1 877 660-5077 or by email at: bccs.siu@gov.bc.ca
