Dartmouth, Nova Scotia - The RCMP is asking for the public's help in solving the homicide of a Dartmouth woman whose remains were found 18 years ago.
The case has never been solved and police say they continue to investigate Cross' death.
Her homicide has been added to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program, which offers up to $150,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in certain cases.
On October 14, 2002, at approximately 5:30 pm, police responded to a report of two hunters who discovered human skeletal remains off a logging road near Dollar Lake Provincial Park, located on the Old Guysborough Road near the Halifax International Airport. The skeletal remains were later identified as those of the victim, Laura Lee Cross.
The investigation revealed that the Ms. CROSS had last been seen on July 12, 2001, and she had been reported missing in August of 2001. Ms. Cross had been living at 18 Middle Street, in Dartmouth, at the time of her disappearance.
Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the death of Laura Lee Cross 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.
