KELOWNA – Five years after Kelowna resident Christopher Daniel Hetu died from multiple gunshots at a park in Kelowna, police are still looking for clues about what happened.

Hetu, an unemployed construction worker who was 20 at the time of his death, was found in Millbridge Park suffering from three to five gunshot wounds in the early morning of October 27, 2009. According to RCMP, he was last seen entering the park riding a BMX bike shortly after 1 a.m.

According to Kelowna.com, a man riding his bike home from work found Hetu on the ground. Thinking he had simply passed out, he phoned 911.

Hetu had just moved to Kelowna from Prince George and police believe there could be individuals in either city with information that could help solve the murder.

A private reward of $10,000 is offered for anyone who provides information that results in the arrest and conviction of those involved.

Global News and Crime Stoppers produced this video about the case.
