The death of Kevin Martin has been added to Nova Scotia's Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.
Anyone who shares information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for this homicide could receive up to $150,000.
"It's been 20 years since Kevin disappeared and his family is looking for closure," said Justice Minister Lena Diab. "The death of a loved one is difficult, the death of a child is especially tragic. I strongly urge anyone with any information, no matter how small it seems, to contact the rewards line and help police solve this case."
Kevin was 13 years old when he went missing from his Stellarton home on May 19, 1994. In November 2000, commercial loggers found his remains in the Burnside area of Colchester County. It was determined his death was a homicide.
"To investigators no piece of information is too small," said Sgt. Paul Vickers, RCMP Northeast Major Crime Unit. "We want to solve this case and bring much-deserved closure to the family. By adding this case to the rewards program, we are hoping those with information will decide to come forward. That one piece of information could be all that's needed."
Anyone with information should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
