Jordan Voudouris' killer remains at large and police are still pleading for key information that could lead to an arrest.
It's nearly two years to the day since Voudouris' body was found in a pool of blood on the footpath behind his popular Paeroa pizza place Mykono's.
The case file remains open and investigators still believe the key to solving the crime remains with the public.
The passage of time had not enabled the family of the 55-year-old to rest any easier with the knowledge that no-one has been identified as Voudouris' killer, Detective Glenn Ewing of the Waihi CIB said.
Police issued a statement this morning saying family and investigators remain committed to finding the person or persons responsible, ''but to do this we need your help''.
"Once again police plead with anyone with any information who hasn't already come forward, to do so."
Ewing said with the passing of time people's loyalties change and those persons who may have held on to information need to be safe in the knowledge that they can still come forward and make a difference.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Waihi CIB on 07 863 9365.
Alternatively, information can be left by signing into the Operation Olive Facebook page at Paeroa Police-Jordan Voudouris or anonymously with the independent Crime stoppers on 0800 555111.
