Halifax, Nova Scotia — The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Donald David Snelgrove.

On August 21, 2000, at approximately 1:20 pm, police responded to a report of a death at 3628 Windsor Street, Halifax, NS. Upon police arrival, the victim, Donald David Snelgrove, born March 7, 1959, was found deceased in the livingroom of his Windsor Street apartment.

The investigation revealed that he had been assaulted some time prior to his death, and this assault was a contributing factor in his death. Police have information about an alleged disturbance and assault, of which Mr. Snelgrove was the victim, which occurred on Romans Avenue, Friday, August 18, 2000.

Police are also interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen his 1988 grey Plymouth Reliant in the area at the time of this disturbance and assault.

Investigators believe there are people who have information that could help solve Donald's murder and they hope that the passage of time will encourage them to do the right thing and come forward with what they know. It is never too late to come forward and the smallest piece of information may be just what is needed to progress the investigation.

Investigators ask anyone with information about Donald's murder to contact police at 902-490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip using the P3 Tips App.

Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Donald David Snelgrove should also 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.

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.
