It’s been almost 30 years since Tina Parr was found murdered in Kelowna.

A hiker found her body in a grassy area near the lower picnic area of Knox Mountain on Sept.26, 1994.

Parr was a known sex worker. The 25-year-old was last seen alive during the early hours of Sept. 25, at a residence on Martin Avenue.

According to Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers, close acquaintances told police that she would have only gone to Knox Mountain willingly with someone she knew.

“The RCMP carried out an extensive investigation, interviewing hundreds of people,” stated Crime Stoppers. “During the interviews, police believed that several people may have had further information to disclose regarding her whereabouts and activities leading up to her death but were not comfortable revealing details at that time.”

As the 30th anniversary of Parr’s homicide draws near, police are hoping to talk to anyone who could help with the investigation.

If you know anything about this crime call the Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers’ anonymous tips line at 1-800-222-TIPS or visit www.crimestoppers.net and quote file # 1994-34170.
