CTV News has learned that investigators believe the man found shot dead in a burnt-out vehicle on a Squamish logging road in 2017 is the same American man known for neo-Nazi activities online and tied to a multi-million dollar anti-spam lawsuit and the search for gold bullion. In a news conference Thursday, B.C.’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said they initially believed the victim found on June 14, 2017, was named Jesse James, as that was the name he went by in the local rock climbing community. However, DNA evidence linked to a missing person investigation has now confirmed the man’s true identity is actually Davis Wolfgang Hawke, IHIT said. They are now working to confirm he’s the same man who made international headlines dating back two decades.
