KISS Help Identify Dead Man

Well, it's not like Gene and Paul went to the morgue to ID remains. But the band was... ahem... instrumental in helping police in Alberta, Canada figure out the identity of a person found last November.

Seems that the deceased was found wearing a jacket with numerous KISS badges, and once police circulated photos of the jacket, his friend came forward with a positive ID. From the story:

"Once I saw the jacket I knew that was my friend's jacket," says Ken Peterson, who grew up with Goodwin in rural Saskatchewan. "There's not too many people who have that amount of badges all on one denim jacket."

No word if Gene will donate a KISS Kasket to the man's family.
