On the fourth anniversary of the murder of Josiah Kaelin Sparks, RCMP are hoping to hear from anyone with information that could help them solve the case.

Mounties were called to Lake Loon just after 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 after Sparks' body was found on Cherry Brook Rd.

They believe the 22-year-old went to a gathering at a home on Cherry Brook Rd. at some point between Monday, Sept. 11 and Thursday, Sept. 14. 

Police would like to speak with anyone who saw him there, or anyone else who knows where he was during that time period.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Special Investigation Section at 902-490-5333 or submit an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.

The case is also part of the province's Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program, which offers up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. All calls to 1-888-710-9090 are recorded and those who come forward need to provide their name and contact information, and might be called to testify in court.
