Halifax Homicide Case Added to Rewards Program

Government is offering a reward of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the homicide of 19-year-old Triston Reece.

On July 26, Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a shooting on Scot Street in Halifax. Upon arrival, officers found Mr. Reece who had sustained life-threatening injuries. He was transported to the hospital where he died shortly after midnight.

Investigators believe there are persons who have information not yet offered to police that could result in arrests and possible charges.

“The death of a child is something no parent should have to experience,” said Mark Furey, Attorney General and Minister of Justice. “I urge anyone with information about Triston’s death – no matter how small it may seem - to come forward.”

Anyone with information on this crime 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 and may be called to testify in court. All calls will be recorded.
