Province adds Hants County woman's murder to Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program

The murder of a young Hants County woman has been added to the province's Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program. 

The program offers up to $150,000 to anyone who shares information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.

The body of 27-year-old Laura Ross was found in a burned-out garage on her South Rawdon property on April 3, 2017.

Police determined the fire had been intentionally set and Ross had been murdered.

An Upper Sackville man was arrested for second-degree murder in Ross' death in July 2017.

He was scheduled to go to trial last month, but the Crown withdrew the charge.

The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program was launched in October 2006. 

Since then, two full rewards of 150-thousand dollars and one partial reward of 100-thousand dollars have been paid out by the program.
