A 12-year-old girl is pleading with the public for information in the death of her dad, Christopher Whitmee, in 2009.
Whitmee, 34, was shot in the bathroom of a Surrey, BC, bar on May 17, 2009, but no one has ever been charged in his death.
RCMP have previously said Whitmee was likely an innocent bystander. Another man was also shot, but survived.
Whitmee's daughter, Lexus, said she's missed out on a lot of things because someone killed her dad.
"I think of him every single day. I miss him every single day," Lexus said Wednesday at a press conference.
"Whoever did this to my dad and to my family is out there somewhere just living their life like everyone else ... maybe even having fun times and doing things with their own kids, and it's because of them that I'll never get to do that again with my dad," she said. "I want to know that the person who stole my dad from me is locked away, and I want to be able to not wonder every day who and where this person is."
Lexus, who was nine at the time of her father's death, lost her innocence that night, her mother, Heather Burkholder-Whitmee, said.
"She will never heal from having her dad ripped from her life," Burkholder-Whitmee said.
The family is offering a $10,000 reward for information about Whitmee's death.
