(Submitted/Province of Nova Scotia Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes)

The RCMP is asking for help in the homicide of Leslie Ann Conrad 13 years ago.

In a release, police say Conrad was last seen by her family on October 5, 2006 and her remains were found by a hunter on November 22 that year near Melanson Road in Kings County.

The investigation determined the 45-year-old died as a result of foul play.

"We know there is information out there somewhere that might help us find out what happened to Leslie," says Cst. Dayle Burris with the RCMP South West Nova Major Crimes Unit.. "Anyone who has information, no matter how they think it might affect the investigation, is encouraged to contact us."

This case is a part of the Nova Scotia Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes program, with the province offering a reward of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Conrad's death.

Anyone with information can call the Rewards for Major Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090, and must provide their contact information and be available to testify in court if required to be eligible for any reward.

Alternately, any information can be provided to police by calling the Kings County RCMP, RCMP Southwest Nova Major Crimes Unit or Crime Stoppers.
