This unidentified man died instantly after stepping into the path of an eastbound train. According to witnesses, he came from a ditch near a railway crossing at 13th Avenue and Courtney Street in Regina.
Mr. Randy Wakelin, who believed that he had been in the company of the unidentified man in the days prior to his death, provided police with information. According to Mr. Wakelin, he and the unidentified man hitchhiked together from Strathmore, Alberta to Swift Current on July 22nd. They then arrived in Regina on the 24th.
During their travels, Mr. Wakelin described his companion as someone who paid attention to his appearance and preferred to eat with a napkin across his knees, suggesting that the young man probably was not used to a transient lifestyle. During their conversations, Randy Wakelin learned that his traveling companion liked to read Stephen King novels, liked discussing politics, and he had recently broken up with a woman named Kathy. It is believed that he may have been from Ontario or Eastern Canada as he talked about spending time in Ontario and by the ocean.
While traveling together, the unidentified man identified himself as ‘Brian’ but Randy Wakelin did not believe this to be the man’s true name. The unidentified man may have been in Kamloops, B.C. as he was in possession of a t-shirt from the Padova City Resorts Inc.
Ms Barbara Beck, who was a resident of Regina at the time. After learning that the young man was to be buried with no one claiming his body, she purchased a headstone for his grave.
