Police still looking for information three years after homicide

The third anniversary of the killing of 49-year-old Peter Hunter Thompson has prompted police to put a call for more information from the public.

Thompson, a James Bay resident, was found dead in his Michigan Street apartment on Feb. 18, 2015, after someone called 911 to ask police to check on him. Police said he had been deceased for some time.

Officers did not find any signs of forced entry or a struggle, but said the “suspicious death” was a homicide.

Investigators with the RCMP’s Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit continue to look into Thompson’s death, and would like the public’s assistance in piecing together his movements in the days and hours before his body was found.

Anyone with information is asked to call the crime unit’s information line at 250-380-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
