Police continue to investigate murder of Corey Willam Murphy

Saturday will mark the 20th anniversary of the murder of Corey William Murphy and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division continues to investigate the case.

On March 2, 2004, at approximately 7:45 p.m., police were dispatched to a call of a man who had been shot near the area of Herring Cove Road and Hilden Drive in Halifax. Officers located Corey who had been shot. He was taken to hospital where he later died.

Investigators do not believe that this was a random incident and that there are people who have information that could help solve Corey’s murder. They are asking anyone with information to do the right thing and come forward with what they know; even the smallest piece of information could be the key to progressing the investigation into Corey’s murder. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 902-490-5020.

Corey’s case is part of the Nova Scotia Department of Justice Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program which offers cash rewards of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for specified major unsolved crimes. Callers must contact the Rewards Program at 1-888-710-9090, must provide their name and contact information, and may be called to testify in court. All calls will be recorded. The amount of the award will be based on the investigative value of the information provided.
