The Vancouver Police Department is still trying to identify a man who left the scene of a bizarre death on January 6.

At around 8:30 p.m., police were called to assist paramedics with an unconscious cyclist on the seawall near Science World. Witnesses at the scene say they saw a man going through a trash can and tossing items out of the bin when a cyclist was struck by a heavy object thrown from the trash.

The 45-year-old male cyclist fell to the pavement and sustained massive injuries to his head. He was rushed to hospital in critical condition but was pronounced dead the next morning.

Anyone with information about this death is asked to contact the VPD Major Crime Section at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
