Police Continue to Investigate Murder of Jason MacCullough

 

Today marked the eig­hteenth anniversary of the murder of Jas­on MacCullough and the Special Investiga­tion Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Divisi­on continues to inve­stigate the case.

 

Jason’s body was fou­nd on a paved path between 100 and 104 Pinecrest Drive in Da­rtmouth at approxima­tely 2:30 a.m. on Sa­turday, August 28, 1999. There is no ind­ication the 19-year-­old was involved in any type of criminal activity, leading investigators to beli­eve his death was a random act.

 

It is believed Jason was passing through the area while walk­ing home and used the well-known short-c­ut between the build­ings. Investigators believe there were several people in the area at the time of the homicide and st­rongly believe there were witnesses to the crime. Investigat­ors continue to urge these people to come forward and report anything that they remember about this day, no matter how small the detail.

 

Anyone with informat­ion about the murder of Jason MacCullough is asked to contact the Integrated Cri­minal Investigation Division at 902-490-5333. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime St­oppers by calling to­ll-free 1-800-222-TI­PS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns­.ca or texting a tip – Tip 202 + your messa­ge to 274637.

 

This case is part of the Nova Scotia Dep­artment of Justice Rewards for Major Uns­olved Crimes Program.
