HALIFAX - The unsolved murder of a young man found dead on Africville Road last fall has been added to the provincial program offering cash rewards for information.

Matthew Sudds.

A release from the Department of Justice states anyone who provides information to police that leads to an arrest or conviction in Matthew Sudds’ homicide could receive up to $150,000.

Police found Sudds’ body in a ditch on Africville Road on Oct. 14, 2013.

Investigators say he was shot and killed there the evening of Oct. 10, shortly after he was last seen by friends.

In early March, police issued a public appeal for help from anyone who saw a black Dodge Charger with out-of-province plates on Africville Road after 6 p.m. on Oct. 14.

The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes program was launched in October 2006. According to the provincial release, it led to arrests in the murder of Melissa Dawn Peacock, in July 2012, and in the murder of Narico Danfue Downey in October 2013.
