Deep River John Doe was found deceased on a bench in an outhouse on a cross country ski trail in the Laurentian Hills, near Deep River, Ontario.
John Doe was found in an outhouse outside of a locked ski cabin owned by the Deep River Cross Country Ski Club. He had likely been hiking for several miles, as there are no vehicle-accessible roads nearby and no other means of transportation were found in the area. He was well-tanned, and his face was recently sunburned.
His cause of death was determined to be a result of stimulant overdose, likely caused by an overuse of caffeine and weight loss pills. He may have did this as a suicide, or he was purposely killed through drugs.
He had a blue nylon Eagle Creek knapsack which contained:
- Candle lantern
- Mini-mag flashlight
- Water container
- Matches ; matchbooks from Sheraton Hotel, W Hotels (American chain), and the Barclay Hotel in Vancouver
