(Ottawa) — The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is offering a reward of up to $75,000 for information leading to an arrest in the ongoing homicide investigation of Egal Daud.  

Egal was 30 years old when he was found deceased in a vehicle on Northview Road on February 11, 2018. He had been shot.

“All known witnesses were spoken to at the time and all public tips were followed up by our detectives,” said Sgt Chris O’Brien of the Homicide Unit. “Today, we are asking those who have information and have not yet spoken to police to help us identify Egal’s killer. His family needs to know.”

Homicide detectives have learned that Egal was going to meet acquaintances on February 5th and no one from his family heard from him after that day. He was reported missing to police.

The Daud family provided this statement: “Egal was a gentle soul and kind heart. The loss of our brother and son has left our family in unimaginable pain. Pain that has been exacerbated by the fact that the person who did this has not been found and held accountable for this heinous crime. We appeal to anyone and everyone who has any information – be it minor or major – to please come forward and help us bring those responsible to justice.”  

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the Ottawa Police Homicide Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5493.
