Police continue to investigate the murder of Shane Darrell Siddle

Today marks the 28th anniversary of the murder of Shane Darrell Siddle and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division continues to investigate the case.

On December 12, 1994, police received a report that a patient at the Victoria General Hospital, Shane Siddle, had been admitted on December 7 with a serious head injury. On December 13, Shane passed away as a result of his injuries. Investigators believe that on the night of December 7, Shane was assaulted near his residence on Belle Aire Terrace in Halifax and the assault was not reported to police.

Investigators believe there are people who have information that could help solve Shane’s case. We hope that the passage of time will encourage someone to do the right thing and come forward with what they know about Shane’s murder. It is never too late to do the right thing and the smallest piece of information may be just what is needed to progress the investigation.
