No one has claimed the property of 48-year-old Jeff Hughes, who was shot and killed by police outside his Selby Street apartment in Nanaimo on Oct. 23.

Crime-scene tape that marked off the outdoor area where Hughes died was finally removed late Thursday, four weeks after his death.

On Friday, Hughes' landlord, building owner Alex Kay, began clearing out Hughes' ground-floor suite.

Hughes had lived in the building for seven years. No family members have visited the apartment since Hughes' death, said Kay, who added that a brother in Toronto said he wants nothing to do with his brother's belongings.

Hughes' things will be recycled or trashed but the brother asked for family photos to be put aside to be picked up later.

"We contacted him to see what to do with the stuff and he said, 'No, I don't want anything to do with it,'" said Kay on Friday.

Kay said police did not disclose any information when they returned the unit keys on Wednesday. He declined to describe the contents of the apartment or allow a Daily News reporter inside.

The room was reportedly furnished with Nazi flags, stuffed animals, plants and computers, according to neighbours, who have described Hughes as a harmless man who loved the environment and dabbled in neo-Nazism.

Kay estimated it could take as long as a month for the rooms to be cleared out before the apartment will be available to rent.

Police have yet to release much information about the shooting, including how many officers were involved, how many times Hughes was shot and whether he had a weapon.

Several of the officers involved have hired lawyers to represent them during the investigation, which could take more than a year. continues here
