Police continue to investigate the death of Rachelle Valade

Today will mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Rachelle Valade, and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division is asking for the public’s assistance in providing any information in relation to her death.

On December 3, 2008, thirty-five-year-old Rachelle Valade was walking through the parking lot of 6 Primrose Street in Dartmouth at about 9 p.m. A tractor trailer cab that had been parked in the lot struck Rachelle as it pulled away. The truck continued out of the lot onto Primrose Street and turned right onto Victoria Road. It remains unknown whether the driver realized the truck had struck Rachelle.

The truck was described by witnesses as a white tractor trailer cab with chrome “moose bars” (a protective grill) on the front. Investigators received a number of tips from the public, however, they have yet to locate/identify the driver or the truck involved in the collision.

Investigators believe there are people who have information in relation to Rachelle’s death, and hope that the passage of time may encourage someone to do the right thing and come forward with what they know. It is never too late and no piece of information is too small, it could be just what is needed to advance the investigation.

Anyone with information about Rachelle’s death is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016. 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 using the P3 Tips App
