Police looking for tips in 2020 South Okanagan homicide

Four years ago a 21-year-old Oliver man was shot and killed in his home but police have yet to solve the murder.

Officers were called to a home at around 11:30 p.m. June 13, in the 6000 block of Sandpoint Drive in Oliver to a report of a shooting, according to an RCMP media release.

Officers found the body of Noah Hommel-Zakall in his basement suite and his death was deemed a homicide by investigators.

RCMP are still looking for witnesses or anyone who has information about the murder including anyone who had dealings with Hommel-Zakall on the day he was killed.

Police are also trying to identify a dark coloured, newer full-size pickup truck with cab lights on the roof that was seen in the Sandpoint Drive area before the killing.

“With the passage of time, it is hoped that someone who may not have been willing or able to talk to police four years ago, may now be in a better position to offer information,” Southeast District Major Crime Unit Staff Sgt. Jason Smart said in the release.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Southeast District Major Crime Unit at 1-877-987-8477.
