His sisters have expressed anger, frustration and sadness that there are still no arrests in his case, and that the investigation seems to be at a standstill.

Ahlam Nadiri said Monday that her brother was dedicated to his family and that every single day they are reminded of him.

“He would always tell us he loved us,” she said. “He was full of energy, and wherever he would go his energy would take over the room.”

“He was shot multiple times and he died alone in that house,” Ahlam said.

His sister Awar Nadiri said that the family believes there had been some kind of disagreement between her brother and the group that she believes he was with. She added that she believes he was told the issue was resolved, only to be taken to a home and shot. She said he was forgiving but to a fault.

“For him to be lured there because he has such a good heart, that’s what breaks us the most,” Awar said.

The Nadiri family said that Calgary police have CCTV footage of suspects and that the sisters have passed along names of people they believe were involved.

“He was shot multiple times and he died alone, in that house,” Ahlam said.

The Calgary Police Service said Monday that it has investigators working around the clock to try and get charges laid in Nadiri’s death.

Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta said that CPS always tries to solve cases as quickly as possible.

“If we had more information from people that hold the knowledge of what happened, we would be able to move much quicker than we are right now,” he said.

Schiavetta added that there are people close to the victim that can move the case forward quickly.

“What we do need is for those final witnesses to come forward, and that would allow us to put all the evidence we collected into context so we can seek charge approval in relation to this case,” he said.

The family has decided to offer a $10,000 cash reward for any information that leads to an arrest. The family also said if anyone comes forward with information, they will help them if they feel they need to relocate.
