The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA - The Cana­dian Press

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — The New Brunswick Po­lice Com­mis­sion has sus­pended its in­quiry into the Saint John Po­lice Force’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Richard Oland’s mur­der in 2011. The com­mis­sion is­sued a state­ment Fri­day say­ing the probe had to be put on hold pend­ing the out­come of an ap­peal of Den­nis Oland’s mur­der con­vic­tion, which could in­clude a call for a new trial. The state­ment says the com­mis­sion wants to avoid hav­ing an im­pact on the on­go­ing crim­i­nal pro­ceed­ings. A jury found Den­nis Oland guilty in De­cem­ber of se­cond-de­gree mur­der in death of his father, a well­known New Brunswick busi­ness­man.
