Police continue to investigate the murder of Shelley Denise Connors



Today marks the 30th anniversary of the murder of Shelley Denise Connors and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division continues to investigate the case.

Shelley, who was 17 years old at the time, went missing from her home on Drysdale Road in Halifax on May 29, 1993. She was reported missing to police the following day. On June 1, she was found deceased in a wooded area near the Spryfield Lions Rink, at 25 Drysdale Road.

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 Shelley’s murder to contact police.
