Josiah Sparks murder added to Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program

The September 2017 murder of a Loon Lake man has been added to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.

Justice Minister Mark Furey says the province hopes that by adding Josiah Kaelin Sparks' murder to the program it will encourage people to help solve the crime.

The program provides up to $150,000 to anyone who shares information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible. 

RCMP responded to a report that Sparks' body had been found on September 14th, and investigators say he met with foul play sometime between Sept. 11th and 14th. 

Acting Inspector Lisa Stuart, Officer-in-Charge of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division, says they believe there are people who have information that they haven't provided to police, and they hope the incentive of a monetary reward will encourage people to come forward. 
 
Anyone with information should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.
