KAMLOOPS - It's been just over two years since the body of a Kamloops man was found in a rural area just outside the city, and there have still been no arrests made in the case.

RCMP believe Robert Leslie Gair, 52, was killed around Sept. 13, 2016. His remains were found near Barnhartvale.

Police were tight-lipped in the months following Gair's death, only alerting the public in April 2017 that the homicide had even happened.

"The investigation remains active and ongoing however there is no update to provide at this time," RCMP said in a statement emailed to iNFOnews.ca on Sept. 14.

Other than the initial statement the Southeast District RCMP released to the media in April 2017, there have been no updates provided to the public on the investigation into Gair's death.

Police have also not said whether or not suspects, or persons of interest, have been identified in the case.

When Southeast District RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk spoke with iNFOnews.ca in April, he said Gair had been reported missing before his death although a missing persons report was not issued by police.

If you know anything about Gair's death, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or the Major Crime Unit at 250-469-7800.
