Jason MacCullough was mudered in 1999. He was 19 years old.

Today is the 10th anniversary of the murder of Jason MacCullough and the Halifax Regional Police/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit 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.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Halifax Regional Police/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit at (902) 490-5333. Anonymous tipsters can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.

The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering a reward in the amount of $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jason Allan MacCullough.
