Sukhjeet Saggu- 20 years
Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park, BC, Canada
Sukhjeet was with a group of friends walking a large well-known trail from their vehicle at the parking lot to Lindeman Lake. He stated he wanted to run ahead and meet them at the lake. When the friends arrived at the lake, he was not there. The Chilliwack Search and Rescue group was notified along with RCMP.
Just days after the hiker vanished, a helicopter search found his body in a boulder field far off course from the lake trail. Doug Fraser was the SAR supervisor on this event. A June 7, 2015 article from CBC news had this from Doug, “It was very, very strange and difficult to explain why he ended up where he did,” said Fraser. Adding that the boulder field is quite a bit of elevation above the lake and a fair distance from the trail.”
An autopsy showed that Sukhjeet died of blunt head trauma. It was the belief of some that he fell and hit his head. How did he end up in a boulder field? Where did he fall from? This incident matches other cases involving a boulder field.
