"We strongly believe there are people who have information and have not already spoken to us," S/Sgt. Todd Wiebe of the RCMP North District Major Crime Unit said. "If you have information which can assist in finding the person responsible for Louis' death, you are urged to call and speak to an investigator."

Police are seeking any information about Korkowski's whereabouts prior to the discovery of his body, particularly between 7 p.m. on May 4 to May 6. Korkowski is described as five-foot-four, 110 pounds, with short black hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen wearing black track pants with white stripe, a blue jacket and black Mulisha sweater.

Police are also looking for information about two vehicles last seen in the area of Sylvia’s Café, in the 5600-block of Nazko Highway, Quesnel just after 9 p.m. on May 4.

The first vehicle is a green, 2003 Ford Explorer with B.C. licence plate KF087R. The SUV has a dent in the passenger door, a roof rack, blank-tinted windows, grey five-prong rims and chrome body trim.

The second vehicle is a grey 2007 Toyota Matrix with black paint and peeling damage on the roof and sticker residue on the passenger-side door.

"Extensive resources are being devoted to this investigation to ensure public safety," said Supt. Sanjaya Wijayakoon, the operations officer of the B.C. RCMP Major Crime Section.

Anyone with information about Korkowski's death or the suspect vehicles is asked to call Quesnel RCMP at 250-992-9211. Tips can also be made anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or online at
