In Sparwood, B.C., tragedy struck when Joel Zimbalatti was found dead in his mobile home. Despite months passing since the incident, the details surrounding his death remain veiled in mystery. While one individual fled the scene before authorities arrived on Oct. 11, another, identified as "Slim" (real name Joshua Freeman), has emerged as a crucial person of interest. Joshua isn't the only person of interest though, a second man was taken into custody and released, and has since been uncooperative with the investigation.

Joel's mother Toni and his best friend Chris are pleading anyone with information on Slim's whereabouts to come forward.

Slim, described as a tall, thin white man with distinctive sideburns, was last sighted in the Kimberly area but is believed to have ties to the Okanagan region. With Slim's knowledge crucial to unravelling the events leading to Joel's death, authorities urge caution but implore anyone with information to contact them immediately.

To anyone with information regarding Joshua Freeman, the other person of interest, or the case in general, please call 1-877-987-8477. If sighted, do not approach; instead, contact authorities promptly by dialling 911.
