Halifax Regional Police and the provincial government are taking additional steps to help solve two homicides in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The homicides of Jaumar Carvery and Angela Hall have been added to the Major Unsolved Crimes Program. The program provides up to $150,000 to anyone who shares information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for these homicides.

"If anyone has information about these terrible crimes, I urge them to share it," said Justice Minister Diana Whalen. "It’s painful for families and the community when they wait so long for answers."

On May 3, 2008, police responded to reports of shots fired near Olympic Court and Sunrise Walk, Halifax. Officers found 21-year-old Jaumar Carvery unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound. Mr. Carvery was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead as a result of the gunshot wound.

On April 29, 2011, police responded to a call about an injured woman at 44 Primrose St., Dartmouth. Angela Patricia Hall, 29, was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead. An autopsy confirmed her death was a homicide.

“Jaumar and Angela’s cases have remained active investigations,” said Superintendent Jim Perrin officer-in-charge of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division. “Investigators assigned to both files continue to pursue leads and look for ways to advance the investigations. The monetary incentive may be just what’s needed to encourage someone to share information that could help us solve these cases and bring some measure of comfort the victims’ families.”

Police believe there are people who have information that could result in an arrest and possible charges. Anyone with information should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.

Those who come forward with information must provide their name and contact information. They may be called to testify in court. All calls will be recorded.

The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program was launched in October 2006 as an additional tool to help police gather information on unsolved crimes. For more information about these cases and others, visit novascotia.ca/just/Public_Safety/Rewards.
