It has been two years to the day since Gordon Banks was found dead outside an Adjala-Tosorontio home and provincial police continue to look for his killer.
Nottawasaga OPP says investigators remain on the case in hopes of bringing resolution to his family. Police are again seeking the public's help to identify a suspect.
On Sept. 8, 2021, at approximately 9 a.m., OPP officers responded to a home on Concession Road 3, where the 60-year-old victim was found deceased outside.
"This is a large rural property with many outbuildings and abandoned vehicles. This location is frequently accessed by transient individuals," police stated in a news release on Friday.
Police say investigators believe the victim was involved in a physical confrontation prior to his death and a "substantial amount of evidence" was collected at the scene, which is located about 40 minutes southwest of Barrie.
As part of the ongoing investigation, the Centre for Forensic Sciences continues to analyze this evidence, according to the OPP.
The Nottawasaga OPP Crime Unit believes there is no concern about public safety.
The investigation continues under the direction of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB), supported by the Forensic Identification Services Unit, and in conjunction with the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario.
"Someone out there has information regarding the death of Gordon Banks," said OPP Det. Insp. Darren Webster, major case manager with the CIB. "OPP investigators continue to work tirelessly, following up on leads and tips from the public.
"We believe community members hold the key to bringing those responsible to justice," he added. "If you saw something that day or have any information you think our investigators should know, call us right away."
