Halifax Regional Police and the provincial government are hoping to receive more information about the death of Kevin Sean Farren through the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.
Anyone who shares information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for Mr.
Farren’s death could receive up to $150,000.
“If anyone has information about Kevin’s death, no matter how small it may seem, I urge them to come forward,” said Justice Minister Lena Metlege Diab. “We need the public’s help to bring this case to a close. His family deserves answers.”
On March 9, 2012, Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a break and enter in progress at an address on Havenbrook Hill in Dartmouth. When officers arrived at the location, they found Mr. Farren inside the residence deceased.
“One of the main obstacles we face in unsolved homicides is a lack of co-operation from people who know what happened,” said Supt. Jim Perrin, officer-in-charge of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division. “Homicide investigators believe there are people out there who have information on the homicide of Kevin Ferren and we hope that the incentive of a reward will encourage them to do the right thing and come forward with what they know.”
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.
In August 2014, the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program paid its first reward to an individual who provided information that led to the arrest and conviction of Dustan Joseph Preeper and Joshua Michael Preeper for the murder of Melissa Dawn Peacock.
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 this case and others, visit www.novascotia.ca/justice.
