Halifax police still looking for clues in murder case
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.
