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 Andrea Lynn King.

Halifax, Nova Scotia - On January 1, 1992, the victim, Andrea Lynn King, flew from her home in New Westminister, British Columbia, to Halifax, intent on traveling and working in Nova Scotia for a period of time.

Andrea was last heard from on January 1, 1992, when she called a family member in British Columbia from the Halifax International Airport, to advise them that she arrived safely and that she would call them back the following day with an address where she would be staying. This was the last time that anyone heard from the victim.

January 4, 1992, the victim's family reported Andrea missing, and an extensive missing person investigation was conducted.

On December 22, 1992, the skeletal remains of Andrea King was located in a wooded area approximately 200 feet from the end of a dead-end street in the Sackville Business Park. It was determined that Andrea had been murdered.

During a 1997 re-investigation of the 1989 disappearance of another young woman, Kimberly McAndrew, police identified a former Halifax sex offender as a prime suspect. During a sex offender treatment program, the man, Andrew Paul Johnson, had been asked to write an essay about a sexual assault from the point of view of the victim. Johnson's essay was a chilling account of McAndrew's rape and murder.

At the time, DNA testing wasn't sophisticated enough to positively connect the murder dots from Johnson to McAndrew or King, and police themselves lost interest after a B.C. court declared Johnson a dangerous offender in 2001.

This case is still unsolved.

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