It’s been two years now since Jonathan Zak was murdered and police are stills searching for the person who killed him.

Saturday marks the second anniversary of the 29-year-old Londoner’s murder.

He was shot dead as he walked home from a friend’s house in the early morning hours of May 31, 2012.

Zak had spent the evening  with friends and chose to walk home on a footpath near Boullee St. and Victoria St. in the city’s northeast. He was found suffering from a gunshot wound and taken to hospital by ambulance, where he was pronounced dead.

Since then, police have come up empty in their search for a suspect. In February of 2013, a $25,000 reward was offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

On Saturday afternoon, Zak’s mother Jean will join family, friends, and Reverend Paul Browning of Trinity United Church to dedicate  a memorial bench placed by the City of London in honour of Jonathan Zak.
