Michael Leonard HAMM
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 Michael Leonard HAMM.
On August 28, 1985, at 7:44 p.m., police responded to a report of a shooting near the intersection of Windsor Street and Duncan Street, Halifax. Upon police arrival, the victim, Michael Leonard Hamm, was found deceased, having been fatally shot.
The investigation revealed the victim had left his Tower Road residence prior to the shooting and he was walking south on Windsor Street, near Duncan, when a lone suspect ran up to him and fired the fatal shot. A suspect was seen fleeing the area. Mr. Hamm had also been a victim of another shooting in May, which police have not yet ruled out as being connected to the incident. Police believe there are persons who have information that could result in an arrest and possible charges.
Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Michael Leonard HAMM 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.
