The RCMP is calling on the public for help with an investigation into the death three years ago of a Piikani Nation man.

“On this third anniversary of Reggie’s death, his children and family are looking for answers so they can start the healing process,” RCMP media relations officer Cpl. Tammy Keibel said in a news release.

Hoof was last seen alive by a friend in his residence on the evening of Oct. 11, 2018.
