Cape Breton Post - - NEWS• -

HAL­I­FAX — Hal­i­fax po­lice say they are con­fi­dent there are peo­ple with in­for­ma­tion that could lead to ar­rests con­nected to the mur­der of Ty­rone Lay­ton Oliver. Fif­teen years ago on July 20, the 20year-old Oliver died af­ter be­ing shot mul­ti­ple times. Of­fi­cers re­sponded to a re­port of sev­eral gun­shots in the 2400 block of Creighton Street. They found Oliver, who had mul­ti­ple wounds, on a bas­ket­ball court. He was trans­ported to hos­pi­tal where he died later that night. Ac­cord­ing to a media re­lease, po­lice also re­sponded to two stab­bings and an as­sault around the same time and in the same area as the homi­cide. They be­lieve all four in­ci­dents are re­lated. Hal­i­fax Re­gional Po­lice spokesper­son Sgt. Pierre Bourdages said on Tues­day there haven’t been any re­cent de­vel­op­ments in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion – but with the public’s help, there could be. This case is part of the Nova Sco­tia Depart­ment of Jus­tice Re­wards for Ma­jor Un­solved Crimes Pro­grams.
