Dartmouth, Nova Scotia — 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 Rachel Joy MacQuarrie.

On June 13, 2002, skeletal remains were found by a construction worker who was on site twinning the 101 highway between Mount Uniacke and Windsor. The remains were later identified as those Rachel Joy MacQuarrie.

The investigation revealed that Ms. MacQuarrie was last seen on September 25, 1997 in the Halifax area, and was reported missing on October 8, 1997. Ms. MacQuarrie had been living on Victoria Road in Dartmouth at the time of her disappearance.

Const. Meredith Darrah, spokeswoman for the Nova Scotia RCMP, said the police have done several interviews connected to the case and hope that adding it to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program will bring new information to light.

"We wanted to bring this case to the forefront of people's minds again, to remind people of this investigation," Darrah said.

"Maybe someone will have information that they thought at one time was irrelevant and it will encourage them to come forward. That information that could lead to us solving this case."

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

The reward is payable in Canadian dollars 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.

Random violent crime seems less common. There are definitely people caught in the wrong place at the wrong time that end up victims, but generally the serious assaults/stabbings are between people known to each other.
