SHUBENACADIE, N.S. – The province and RCMP announced Thursday they are adding the 1985 murder of Tina Barron to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.
On Oct. 6, 1985, the 17-year-old was reported missing to police. On Nov. 4 of that year, Barron’s remains were discovered in a wooded area off Robinson Road in Shubenacadie near Indian Brook.
“This family deserves answers as they continue to grieve the loss of their loved one,” said Justice Minister Mark Furey in a release Thursday. “I strongly encourage anyone with information about this crime to come forward and tell police.”
Anyone with information that could result in an arrest and possible charges should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program hotline at 1-888-710-9090. The reward can be up to $150,000.
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.
“We are so pleased to see that Tina's case has been added to the program,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jennifer Clarke. “Our hope is that by having this case added, information may come to light that may help us solve this case.”
The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program was first launched in October 2006 as an extra tool to help police obtain information on unsolved crimes.
