Eye-catching posters seeking witnesses to help solve Vancouver's first murder of 2016 are appearing downtown and police say they have been placed there by the murdered man's family.

Vancouver Police say they did not have anything to do with the posters.

40-year-old Christopher Denis Kwik was found dead in a Granville Street apartment on Jan. 30.

His death was Vancouver's first murder of the year.

The posters stapled to poles on Robson and Homer Streets ask for "information on my son's murder."

The poster urges anybody with information to call the Homicide Unit or Crimestoppers.

Kwik was scheduled to appear in court, charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Police said the man had "minor" contact with police before his suspected murder.
