More than 11-years ago, Joseph Pek was killed at a Kelowna home. His family is offering a reward and is asking anyone with information about his death to come forward and speak to RCMP.

On Oct. 20, just before 1 a.m., Kelowna RCMP received a 9-1-1 call to a residence in the 400 block of Birch Avenue. Upon arrival, investigators located 38-year-old Pek dead near the side of the house, according to the RCMP in a press release.

Pek’s death was determined to be a homicide, and the investigation remains open.

The Kelowna RCMP Major Crimes Unit follows all tips and leads in this investigation, says Insp. Kent Lowe of the Kelowna RCMP, in the release.

"We believe there are people who know what happened to Pek who haven’t spoken to us. His family deserves answers, and we are asking you to come forward now." Lowe said.

In order to protect the integrity of the investigation, the cause of death, and more specific details are not being released at this time, RCMP said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
