Kamloops homicide case you've never heard of is 'still being investigated'


KAMLOOPS - The RCMP has announced they're continuing their investigation into a murder they never told the public about.

The remains of Kamloops resident Robert Leslie Gair, 52, were found in the area of Robbins Range Road south of Barnhartvale according to a news release by Southeast District RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

He did not say when the remains were located, but said Gair is believed to have been murdered on or about Sept. 13, 2016.

Police believe Gair's murder was not random and that there is no risk to the public. According to the release, the area in which Gairs remains were located is in the Southeast District Major Crime Unit's jurisdiction.

"Investigators have maintained communication with Mr. Gair's family since the commencement of the investigation and to date had not released information publicly on the recovery of his body nor the subsequent determination of it being a homicide death," Moskaluk said in the release.

Investigators are asking anyone with information regarding Gair's murder to contact the major crime unit at 250-469-7800 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800-222-8477.

Police say no other information is being released at this time.
