Terrace RCMP have confirmed a man found dead Friday May 15 was a victim of homicide.
James Nathan Roberts, 38, was last seen alive around 4 p.m., Thursday May 14. His body was found the next day around 11 a.m. in the woods between the curling rink and the train tracks by a Terrace RCMP officer on foot patrol.
