Last Friday marked the fourth anniversary of the murder of 19-year-old Jonathan Reader which the Halifax Regional Police/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit continues to investigate.
At about 4:10 a.m. on August 7, 2005, Reader was found unconscious on the roadway at Radcliffe Drive and Dunbrack Street. Mr. Reader was taken to hospital where he died a short time later. The matter was later ruled a homicide.
