Jason MacCullough’s murder in Dartmouth remains a mystery 22 years later – Halifax

Fewer than 30 new COVID-19 cases reported in Waterloo Region for 3rd straight day

Police are continuing to investigate the murder of Jason MacCullough on the 22nd anniversary of his death.

The 19-year-old was found dead on a paved path between 100 and 104 Pinecrest Dr., in Dartmouth around 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 28, 1999.

“Investigators believe Jason was passing through the area while walking home and used the well-known short-cut between the buildings,” said a release from Halifax Regional Police Friday.

“There is no indication that Jason was involved in any type of criminal activity, leading investigators to believe his death was a random act.”
