The suspicious death of a 28-year-old man in the Halifax area last week has been convicted as a homicide.
Around 22:50 AT last Thursday, the Halifax RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 100 block of Lake Loon Road in Loon Lake, which is about 13 kilometers east of downtown Halifax.
A man’s body was found inside the car. His death has been convicted as a homicide by the forensic pathologist, police said Wednesday.
Cpl. Chris Marshall, a spokesman for the Nova Scotia RCMP, said police are not releasing the cause of death or the victim’s identity at this time.
No one had been arrested on Wednesday.
The man’s death is the fourth homicide in Dartmouth in the last two months.
When Marshall was asked about possible links to the three other deaths, including Alexander Joseph Frederick Thomas, Vincent Beals and 8-year-old Lee-Marion Cain, Marshall said the investigation is still in its early stages.
“Investigators … continue to work toward gathering information and evidence,” he said. “At this point, it would be too early to make connections to others, you know, ongoing investigations.”
Marshall said the RCMP does not believe the killing on Lake Loon is a random act.
Anyone who has information about this incident or saw anything suspicious in the Lake Loon area last Thursday night, please call the Halifax RCMP at (902) 420-5020.
