CHARLOTTETOWN - Lennon Waterman was the young man whose body was found on the North River shoreline Sunday.

The Office of the Chief Coroner and RCMP Queens District have made a positive identification of the body and released the details to the public in a news release Tuesday afternoon.

"Dental records have confirmed the remains are those of Lennon Brian Michael Waterman, age 29 of Charlottetown," states the release. Foul play is not suspected.

On Nov. 8, crews searched the North River after a report at about 10 p.m. that led them to suspect a person had gone into the river. Clothing was left at the scene.

Dianne Young would later identify the clothing as belonging to her son, Lennon Waterman.

She told The Guardian a few days after Waterman disappeared that she believes her son chose to end a life damaged by drug addiction by leaping into the cold water.

Young has since been speaking out urging the province to provide additional and improved services for Islanders struggling with addictions.
