KELOWNA – The mother of a Lower Mainland man who was murdered in West Kelowna ten years ago made a tearful plea for tips from the public at a RCMP press conference this morning.

Laura MacDonald’s son Adam Fettes was bludgeoned to death on Sept. 10, 2006. Police say his car, a 2006 Ford 500, was taken from the murder scene and found abandoned in the lower parking lot of Bertram Creek Park in South Kelowna between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m.

There’s no secret he was an addict and a drug dealer,” MacDonald says. “But he wasn’t just a drug dealer and an addict. He helped a lot of people. He did a lot of good for people.”

The family of Fettes, who went by the name Mikel Jones, are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for his murder.

“Whoever killed him is out there and can do it again,” she says. “No other family needs to go through what we went through.”

His mother says he loved Nanaimo bars and they spoke often, even when he was in the depths of his addiction.

“He had one life (on the streets) and he had this life with me. It’s the life with me that’s important and that’s why the reward is there.”

Anyone with any information that may aid police are asked to contact RCMP Southeast Major Crime at 250-469-7800 or Crime Stoppers.
