Jean Hilda Myra

Halifax, Nova Scotia — On April 5, 1990, at 10:48 a.m., police responded to a report from a citizen who had been walking on the west side of the grain elevators just south of South Bland Street, and discovered a body under a set of stairs next to the grain elevators. Upon police arrival, Jean Hilda Myra was identified as the deceased victim and she had been the victim of a homicide.

The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jean Hilda Myra.

The investigation revealed that the victim had been residing at the YMCA at the time of her death. The victim had last been seen leaving a tavern located in the south end of Barrington Street around midnight on April 4, 1990, and she was known to frequent the general surrounding area in the south end of Halifax. Police believe there are persons who have information that could result in an arrest and possible charges.

Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jean Hilda Myra should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.

The reward is payable in Canadian funds and will be apportioned as deemed just by the Minister of Justice for the Province of Nova Scotia. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.
