Government is hoping to receive information about the deaths of Jack and Micheline Hulme through the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.
Anyone who shares information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the deaths of Mr.
and Mrs. Hulme could receive up to $150,000.
“It’s been almost 30 years since Mr. and Mrs. Hulme were killed, and their family is still looking for answers,” said Justice Minister Lena Diab. “We urge anyone who has information about these homicides to please call our reward line. New details, no matter how small, can help police solve a case and ensure justice is served.”
On June 3, 1985, the Bridgewater RCMP responded to a fire at a home in Dayspring, Lunenburg Co. The bodies of Jack and Micheline Hulme were discovered. The fire was suspicious and the deaths ruled a double homicide.
“Every case is different and presents its challenges for investigators,” said Sgt. Bill Raaymakers, RCMP Southwest Nova Major Crime Unit. “We are adding this case today with the hope that someone, somewhere, will make a decision to come forward with information that will lead us to make an arrest. The family deserves to have closure.”
Anyone with information should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
In July 2012, the program helped the RCMP arrest and charge two people with first-degree murder in the disappearance of Melissa Dawn Peacock.
In October 2013, the program also helped RCMP in an arrest in the homicide of Narico Danfue Downey.
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 program was launched in October 2006 as another tool to help police gather information about unsolved crimes. For more information about this case and others, visit www.gov.ns.ca/just .
