The family of a woman who was murdered in her Salmon Arm home 10 years ago is still searching for answers and appealing to the public for information.

On the evening of August 11, 2011, Salmon Arm RCMP found the body of Pamela Jones face down in the carport of her home located in the 4700-block 10 Ave. SE, Salmon Arm, a victim of homicide, according to a release by Salmon Arm RCMP.

"The BC RCMP Major Crime Section continues to follow up on all tips and leads in this investigation, the case remains active and on-going," operations officer for the major crime section Supt. Sanjaya Wijayakoon said in the release.

"Investigators believe there are people who have information and/or know what happened to Pamela and haven’t provided that information to the RCMP. Pamela’s family deserves answers and the RCMP is asking people to come forward now."

Pamela's son Lance Jones has been raising awareness for victims of crime by doing a push-up challenge, completing over 43,000 push-ups in the last year, RCMP said.

Anyone with any information related to Pamela Jones’ homicide is asked to call the Salmon Arm RCMP 250-832-6044 or the BC RCMP Major Crime Section tip line at 1877-543-4822.
