HALIFAX - Major crime investigators in Halifax are continuing to ask anyone with information about the murder of a 61-year-old Waverley man two years ago to come forward.

Kevin Farren was found dead inside a Portland Hills home around 2:30 a.m. March 9, 2012 after police received reports of a commotion in the house at 56 Havenbrook Hill.

“My brother was such a quiet, kind person, it’s just hard to wrap your head around how his life could ever have ended in such a violent way,” Faith Brenan, one of Farren’s sisters, told Metro last year on the one-year anniversary of the killing.

Farren was an accountant, working in the home office of his employer at the time of his death. The homeowner was out of town at the time.

Two people were arrested shortly after the murder, but were released without charges. There have been no arrests since.

Police have said there’s no evidence to suggest the murder was the result of a home invasion. They won’t say if the incident was random or not.

Farren is survived by his mother, two brothers, and three sisters.
