Family of Dennis Oland to renew reward in effort to turn up new information in murder investigation


The family of Dennis Oland says it will renew its offer of a reward for any new information or evidence in the slaying of his father, businessman Richard Oland in July, 2011.

They issued the statement yesterday after Saint John Police Chief Bruce Connell said the force is not actively investigating the killing, despite last month's acquittal of Dennis Oland on a charge of second-degree murder in the case.

Connell made his statement the day after New Brunswick's Public Prosecution Services announced they will not appeal the case.

Connell says while the investigation is no longer active, police will consider any additional information or evidence that comes to their attention.
