The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Kevin James PETRIE.
On March 28, 2004, at approximately 1:00 pm, police responded to a report that a male was having unknown medical problems at 7132 Spruce Street, Halifax. Upon police arrival, the victim, Kevin PETRIE, was observed in medical distress. Mr. PETRIE was transported to the QEII Hospital, where he later died.
The investigation revealed that Mr. PETRIE had been the victim of a home invasion and a serious assault on March 17, 2004, which occurred at 269 Pleasant Street, Dartmouth. It is believed that the injuries Mr. PETRIE sustained during this home invasion were a contributing factor in his death.
