KELOWNA – The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a dirt-bike incident near Trail on July 2, 2013.

He was Brian Hall, aged 59, of Rossland.

Mr. Hall had gone dirt-biking by himself on July 2, 2013. When he did not return as scheduled, two friends started a search. They found him on the morning of July 3 in a heavily wooded area near Casino, south of Trail. He had apparently lost control of his bike and collided with a tree. He was deceased at the scene.

The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.

The family of Mr. Hall has been notified of his death. On behalf of family members, the BC Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time.
