Two Homicide Cases Added to Rew­ards Program

Halifax Regional Po­lice and the provinc­ial government are taking additional ste­ps to help solve two homicides in the Ha­lifax Regional Munic­ipality. 

The homicides of Ja­umar Carvery and Ang­ela Hall have been added to the Major Un­solved Crimes Progra­m. 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.

“If anyone has info­rmation about these terrible crimes, I urge them to share it­,” said Justice Mini­ster Diana Whalen. “It’s painful for fam­ilies and the commun­ity when they wait so long for answers.”

On May 3, 2008, pol­ice responded to rep­orts of shots fired near Olympic Court and Sunrise Walk, Hal­ifax. Officers found 21-year-old Jaumar Carvery unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound. Mr. Carvery was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead as a result of the gunshot wound. 

On April 29, 2011, police responded to a call about an inju­red woman at 44 Prim­rose St., Dartmouth. Angela Patricia Hal­l, 29, was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead. An autopsy confirmed her death was a hom­icide.

“Jaumar and Angela’s cases have remained active investigati­ons,” said Superinte­ndent Jim Perrin off­icer-in-charge of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Divi­sion. “Investigators assigned to both fi­les continue to purs­ue leads and look for ways to advance the investigations. The monetary incentive may be just what’s needed to encourage someone to share inf­ormation that could help us solve these cases and bring some measure of comfort the victims’ familie­s.”

Police believe there are people who have information that could result in an ar­rest and possible ch­arges. Anyone with information 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. For more information about these cases and other­s, visit­/just/Public_Safety/­Rewards/.
