From 2013:

Kenneth Benjamin Hein, 76, was found dead in his home on Wagon Wheel Trail in Ladysmith’s North Oyster district shortly before 11:30 a.m. May 16...

Ladysmith RCMP’s initial investigation turned up some suspicious aspects to Hein’s death, promoting them to call in the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit.

Getting jobs done is what drives Mike Gogo everyday at his Cedar Sawmill but one personal job he’s set out to do remains undone, and bothering him. Solving the murder of his dear friend of 40 years Kenneth Hein, who at 76 years old still drove a gravel truck when he was brutally murdered...

“You know there isn’t a person who didn’t like Ken. In the wake that we had for him there was probably 300 people in the community hall in Cedar.”

But this week marks the third anniversary of the crime, and despite Mike Gogo putting up a $10,000 reward for information that would catch the culprit, friends are still at a loss about who killed Hein.
