It has been five long years since our beloved father, Rostam Poulad, was senselessly murdered at our family home in North Vancouver on November 30, 2013. We remember that day like it was yesterday and we are still hoping that those with information will step forward.

Our dad was the pillar of our family. He loved his family unconditionally. He opened his home to all and befriended everyone. He loved his community and we know there are those in the North Shore community that have information about what happened to our dad. You can call IHIT or Crime Stoppers. But please do the right thing and come forward now.
