Ed Moynan Dead: Daughter Confirms Body Found

OTTAWA - The daughter of an Ottawa man who’d been missing in Panama since November says a body found last Friday in the Central American country was her dad.

Ed Moynan’s daughter, Sandy, posted a message on Facebook confirming that her father’s body had been identified.

She thanked family, friends, patients and colleagues for their support over the last four months and said funeral details would be posted shortly.

Foreign Affairs confirmed Monday that Canadian has died in Panama.

That news came amid reports that police in Panama were looking into whether a body found in a suitcase was Moynan’s.
