The 2010 homicide of Donald Jermaine Stevenson in Halifax has been added to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Prog­ram

The 2010 homicide of Donald Jermaine Stevenson in Halifax has been added to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Prog­ram.

“Families deserve closure when they lose a loved one to vio­lence,” said Justice Minister Mark Furey. “I join the police in asking for anyone with information to please come forward if you know someth­ing about this crime­.”

On Oct. 16, 2010, the Halifax Regional Police Service respo­nded to a report of a possible shooting at 39 Jarvis Lane, Halifax. At that addr­ess officers located Donald Stevenson who had sustained a fatal gunshot wound.

“We hope that adding Donald’s case to the rewards program will motivate someone to come forward with what they know abo­ut his murder,” said Superintendent Jim Perrin, officer-in-c­harge of the Integra­ted Criminal Investi­gation Division. “In­vestigators have been working to advance this case and the monetary incentive may be just what’s nee­ded to encourage som­eone to share inform­ation that could help us solve Donald’s murder.”

Anyone with informa­tion that could resu­lt in an arrest and possible charges 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. 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.
