Police continue to investigate the murder of Daniel Martin Newman



Today marks the 15th anniversary of the homicide of Daniel Martin Newman and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division continues to investigate the case.

On June 1, 2008, at approximately 3:30 a.m., Daniel’s body was discovered in a pathway near the former St. Patrick’s-Alexandra School on Maitland Street in Halifax by people who were walking home through the area.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about Daniel’s murder to contact police.
