Family fears the worst after discovery of body
CBC Thu, 14 Apr, 2011 1:25 AM EDT

A family in Saskatoon is bracing for bad news following the discovery of human remains in the city on Sunday.

On Wednesday, CBC News spoke to a family member who said they fear the body may be that of A.J Cachene.

Police have only said that the body was that of an adult male. It was noticed by two men who were checking on the condition of the Glen Reeve ball diamonds, located on the city's west end.

"First reaction: That's a strange place for somebody to be sleeping," Paul Foley, from the Raiders Softball Association, told CBC News Monday about what he saw. "Then we kind of went round again and said, 'I think that's somebody's body out there.'"

It is believed the body went unnnoticed because it was underneath snow in the park for some time.

The body was found near a bench behind the first baseline fence of ball diamond number five.

It was badly decomposed and officers from the Saskatoon police major crimes unit were still investigating how the man died and how he came to be in the ball diamond.

An autopsy was done Wednesday. However, CBC News was told that dental records will likely be needed to confirm the identity.

Cachene's brother and other family members were gathering at their home reserve to await news of any further developments in the case.

Body could be Cachene
 
By David Hutton, StarPhoenix; Postmedia News April 14, 2011
 
The body found at a Holiday Park ball diamond this week may be Archie Cachene, say family and friends who are grieving the young man's death while waiting for police confirmation.

The 20-year-old Saskatoon man has been missing since late January, family say.

Marjorie Freed, Cachene's foster parent, said in a phone interview from the Yellow Quill First Nation, where she lives, police told the family a body had been found with Archie Cachene's identification.

The family is in a state of disbelief while waiting on the results of an autopsy, especially Cachene's five brothers, two sisters, and other close relatives, Freed said. There has been an outpouring of support for the family since Sunday.

"His siblings are taking it really hard right now," Freed said. "I don't want to begin to move on, but you have to."

Family members are flying in from across the country anticipating the worst, she said.

Two people checking on the Glen Reeve diamonds near the Holiday Park Golf Course discovered badly decomposed remains Sunday. There was no obvious indication of the cause of death, police say.

The discovery is being treated as suspicious, as is any sudden death in which foul play has not yet been ruled out, a police spokesperson said this week. Major crimes continues to investigate.

It is hoped an autopsy performed Tuesday will determine the cause of death and help confirm the identity of the deceased. The police are waiting on dental records, Staff Sgt. Wes Ramsay said. The records won't be available until late Monday at the earliest, he said.

"Until we have scientific proof - we don't know," Ramsay said.

Cachene moved from Ottawa 10 years ago to Yellow Quill to be reunited with his birth mother before moving to Saskatoon around three years ago to be closer to his brothers and find work, Freed said.

"He was a very loving boy," Freed said. "He got along well with everybody. He had a lot of friends. Everyone loved him."

The body found at a Holiday Park ball diamond this week may be Archie Cachene, say family and friends who are grieving the young man's death while waiting for police confirmation.

The 20-year-old Saskatoon man has been missing since late January, family say.

The records won't be available until late Monday at the earliest, Ramsay said.

"Until we have scientific proof we don't know," he said.

Cachene moved from Ottawa, Ont., to Yellow Quill 10 years ago to be reunited with his birth mother before moving to Saskatoon around three years ago to be closer to his brothers and find work, Freed said.

"He was a very loving boy," Freed said. "He got along well with everybody. He had a lot of friends. Everyone loved him."

Cachene's last message on Facebook, a social networking site he used often, was in late January, Freed said.

A number of his friends posted RIP messages and tributes about Cachene on the site beginning Sunday night while many changed their profile picture to feature a photo of him.

Veronica Keith met Cachene three years ago and became close friends, she said. They often joked about being Archie and Veronica, the fictional teenagers featured in the Archie comic.

"He always wanted his friends to be happy," she said in an email Wednesday. "If he was ever unhappy he never showed it. He didn't let any negative energy consume him or pass it on to his friends.

"The one thing I will always remember is his smile. He always smiled, always had a funny story to tell, and really shined. He shared all he had and was never upset with anyone if they couldn't share what they had with him. He was truly a great person."

There was no reports on the Saskatoon Police Service website that Archie was missing since in January 2011.  I wonder about that... the reason the family suspected it was Archie was that his identification was found with the body and it ruled out the other missing man in Saskatoon.  Prayers that this will be solved.  RIP Archie!

Subject: Update - Human Remains Discovered/Holiday Park (rel# 247, 254)

The Saskatoon Police Service, Major Crimes Section, is requesting public assistance in the investigation into the discovery of human remains on April 10, 2011.

The remains, discovered at a ball diamond, have since been identified as belonging to 20 year old Archie Cachene. An autopsy was conducted and did not reveal any physical evidence to indicate he was the victim of foul play. Investigators have no reason to suspect foul play that this time, however they are trying to retrace his movements in the time before his death.

Family members report last seeing Archie Cachene at a home in the 1600 block of 22nd Street West, between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on the evening of January 28, 2011. Before leaving that location he told family members he was planning to meet up with friends.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have seen Archie Cachene after that time to contact 975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Perhaps this thread should be changed to Archie Cachene, found deceased Saskatoon... or something to that effect?
