JUSTICE–Three Recent Homicide Cases Add­ed to Rewards Program

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

The homicides of Ty­ler Ronald Joseph Ke­izer, Rickey Walker and Terrence Patrick Izzard 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.

“Each death by viol­ence is painful for the family and commu­nity involved,” said Justice Minister Di­ana Whalen. “We’re adding these crimes to the Rewards for Ma­jor Unsolved Crimes Program to encourage people who may have information to help solve these crimes.”

At about 2:50 a.m. on Sept. 1, 2016, Ri­ckey Walker was found in medical distress behind John McNeil Elementary School on Leaman Drive in Da­rtmouth. He was tran­sported to hospital, where he was pronou­nced dead. An autopsy confirmed Mr. Walk­er’s death as a homi­cide.

On Nov. 14, 2016 at about 11:07 p.m., a 911 call was receiv­ed about a gunshot in the area of Cragg Avenue, Halifax. Pol­ice found Terrence Patrick Izzard laying in front of 2412 Cr­agg Ave. An autopsy confirmed that Mr. Izzard’s death was a homicide as a result of being shot.

On Nov. 21, 2016, shortly before 11 p.m­., police and EHS re­sponded to a weapons call in the area of Gottingen Street and Falkland Street in Halifax. There, they found Tyler Ronald Joseph Keizer, who was transported to the QEII Health Scien­ces Centre and later pronounced dead. The investigation dete­rmined that Mr. Keiz­er was the victim of a homicide.

“We want the famili­es of these three men to rest assured th­at we’re actively in­vestigating these cr­imes with the goal to bring those respon­sible for these sens­eless murders to jus­tice,” said Supt. Jim Perrin, officer-in­-charge of the Integ­rated Criminal Inves­tigation Division. “We hope the monetary incentive will enco­urage people who have information on the­se cases 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.
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 http://novascotia.ca­/just/Public_Safety/­Rewards/.
