New evidence is calling into question the nature of the death of a young Gravenhurst man.

The body of 22-year-old Justin Evans was found at the edge of a swamp bordering Muskoka Mobile Home Park where he lived back in May, more than five months after he went missing on December 12th, 2020. Initially, Evans’ family said police told them he took his own life.

However, a coroner’s report cites a neighbour who committed suicide and in an audio suicide note “seemed to take responsibility for Mr. Evans’ disappearance, though did not give any specific details regarding his death or the location of his body.” Evans’ mother Jaime Wise and her family say they are somewhat relieved by the findings as they never believed Justin took his own life.
