"It would be a horrible idea to take it for scrap. It's a unique piece, and there will never be another one made like that."According to Vesna Zaric with the Petley Jones Gallery, the piece was kept outside the Granville Street gallery's front entrance at the top of a short flight of steps.
"This other person died of natural causes and they discovered his identity — William Cuthbert's identity — on this male," RCMP Const. Shelley Nasheim explained.
"We don't have the answer as to exactly when this other person started using his identity," Nasheim said, adding the person pretended to be Cuthbert while interacting with others in the community.
RCMP could not say if Cuthbert's financial information was compromised as well. Police did not release the real identity of the man who died to protect the integrity of the investigation.
Police are looking for information about Cuthbert and any people he associated with in the six months between December 2018 and this May.
Nasheim said the number of reports she looked over for the case "probably could write a book," but added, "the leads have are getting very small and slim."
"William's family is absolutely devastated, not knowing where he is or what happened. They need closure, just like any other family would want to know what happened to their loved ones — they're desperate for that."
