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 Margaret Elizabeth HARTRICK.
On September 10, 1998, at 8:23 a.m., police responded to a report from several young students of an unconscious female in the wooded area, behind Harbourview School, 25 Alfred Street, Dartmouth. Upon police arrival, the victim, Margaret HARTRICK, was discovered lying unconscious in this wooded area. The victim had suffered trauma to the head area. The victim was transported to the QEII hospital, where she passed away as result of her injuries on September 18, 1998.
The investigation revealed that the victim was assaulted in the wooded area behind the school. Residents from the surrounding neighborhood reported hearing arguing earlier this same morning, and other residents reported hearing a car speeding from the area, which may be related to this incident.
Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Margaret Elizabeth HARTRICK should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
The reward is payable in Canadian funds and will be apportioned as deemed just by the Minister of Justice for the Province of Nova Scotia. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.
