The homicide of Edwin Michael Thomas Forgeron has been added to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program. On March 9, 2007, at about 3 p.m., Mr. Forgeron was found dead at 12 Convoy Ave., Halifax. His death was ruled a homicide. “We continue to investigate Michael’s murder,” said Superintendent Jim Perrin, officer-in-charge of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division. “We can’t begin to imagine what his family and friends have endured for the past 10 years. We hope the addition of Michael’s case to the rewards program will motivate someone to listen to their conscience and come forward with what they know.” Anyone with information that could result in an arrest and possible charges should call the program’s phone line at 1-888-710-9090. Those who come forward with information must provide their name and contact information. They may be called to testify in court. All calls will be recorded. The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program was launched in October 2006 as an additional tool to help police gather information on unsolved crimes. The program provides up to $150,000 to anyone who shares information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for these homicides.
