Investigators still look for answers 4 years after murder of 21-year-old in the Okanagan

It’s been four years since 21-year-old Noah Hommel-Zakall was shot dead in his basement suite in Oliver.

The probe remains active and ongoing, and both investigators and his family are still seeking answers.

Emergency crews were called to the scene of the shooting in the 6000 block of Sandpoint Drive shortly before 11:30 pm on June 13, 2020.

Upon arrival, police officers found Hommel-Zakall’s body and his death was quickly deemed a homicide.

Now four years to the day, the RCMP is putting the case in the public eye once again in hopes that new information and leads are brought forward.

“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,” said S/Sgt. Jason Smart from the Southeast District Major Crime Unit (SDMCU).

Investigators continue to look for potential witnesses who may have information, including anyone who had contact for dealings with the 21-year-old in the lead up to his death.

They’re also trying to identify a dark-coloured, newer full-size pickup, with cab lights on its roof, that was seen in the area of Hommel-Zakall’s home at that time.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the SDMCU at 1-877-987-8477.
