The family of Terrace resident Cameron Kerr and the Terrace detachment of the RCMP marked a sad anniversary on Monday, with both observing on the year since Mr. Kerr was struck and killed in a hit and run incident along Highway 16 west of Terrace.

Since the investigation into his death was launched, the Terrace RCMP have followed up a number of tips from the public and gathered evidence which have assisted  in their work on the case.

On Monday they provided an update on the investigation, noting how some of the witnesses and persons of interest that have been previously identified from the incident are not from the Northwest or Northern British Columbia and in fact are residents of the Lower Mainland.

With the RCMP committed to solving the case, Sergeant Shawn McLaughlin of the West Pacific Region Traffic Services called for those responsible to come forward to be held accountable for their actions of one year ago.

"To those responsible and to those who have knowledge of this tragic event - and you know who
you are - we encourage you to come forward with your information and take responsibility for your actions. Cameron Kerr deserves as much. Ask yourself if you would want justice done if it was your friend or family member killed in similar circumstances."

A larger overview of the Sergeants comments from a press conference held in Terrace last week can be examined here.

As part of the ongoing investigation, the Terrace RCMP have asked that anyone with information regarding this fatal hit and run collision call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or West Pacific Region Traffic Services at 250-638-7400.
