Identification was made Sunday of the body of a man found ten days ago hanging in a Caistor township barn. Two Toronto men Sunday afternoon examined the clothes and declared them to belong to Kornyl Hayleoki, 44, of 43 Elm Street, Toronto. Hayleoki had been in poor health and had been missing since August 2. Six years ago he worked on the farm where he was found. Sunday, John Dearcach, owner of the farm, and Tom Darhue, 41 Elm Street, Toronto, a neighbor of the missing man, visited Provincial Constable C.W. Wood who has had charge of the case and examined the clothes and articles found in the pockets. They said they were certain that the man must be Hayleoki. When the body was found it was in too advanced a stage of decomposition to allow identification. The men who came here Sunday said that Hayleoki was a Russian and six years ago worked for Dearcach on the Caistor farm. In July of this year he suffered an illness and his face became partially paralyzed. He had worried and several times mentioned suicide.
