"The Body of Knapp Island Chinese Found
The mystery of the disappearance since January 8th of a Chinaman, Wong Chang, has been solved with the appearance of his body on a beach at the south end of Sidney Island. A farmer discovered the form of the 68-year-old Chinese flung where the tide had carried it, and after it had been buffeted by the sea since he fell out of a launch.
Chang left Knapp Island, where he was employed, aboard a launch. The launch was found, but Chang was missing from the day after his departure. Apparently he fell from the launch near Knapp Island on his way back from Sidney.
Knapp Island is situated but four miles north of the Beacon Avenue wharf at Sidney. The southern end of Sidney Island is approximately six miles southeast of the Beacon Avenue wharf.
The old Chinaman had been a resident of British Columbia for more than 30 years and had a number of relatives on Vancouver Island.
Mr. H. C. Hall, of the Peerless Brick and Tile Company, Sidney Island, received a call from the farmer who found Chang's body and immediately informed Provincial Police officers. Constable Bishop was able to identify the man.
The body was removed to the Sands Funeral Parlors, Victoria."
