On September 10, 2006 at 1:00 pm, the West Kelowna RCMP was called to a home in West Kelowna, where investigators located the body of 33-year-old Adam Fettes (AKA – Mikel Jones) in his basement suite residence on Stuart Road. His death was quickly deemed a homicide and the investigation remains active and ongoing.

The RCMP is still looking for potential witnesses who may have information to assist investigators. Adam was a well-known fixture in the Vancouver Downtown East side area and in the Okanagan, and was involved in the local drug trade at the time of his death. Regardless of his activities, his death is criminal in nature and as such, the RCMP will continue to investigate his death until those who are responsible are brought to justice.

With the passage of time, our hope is that someone who was not willing or able to talk to police 11 years ago, may now be in a better position to offer information. Regardless of past decisions, investigators are confident that someone has crucial information regarding Adam's death. Please help provide Adam's family with a degree of solace and contact police, says Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

Police are specifically seeking information from anyone who observed the movement of Adam’s vehicle, a black 2006 Ford 500, 4 door sedan, BC license plate 959-GRC, on the day of his death. The vehicle is believed to have been taken from his residence sometime on Sunday September 10, 2006. The car was found later that same day, in the lower parking lot of Bertram Creek Park off Lakeshore Road in Kelowna.

Adam’s family is solely responsible for the administration of this PRIVATE reward. Please see their social media post.
