DIGBY COUNTY, NS – The unsolved homicide case of Lynda Anne Comeau has been added to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.

"We want to continue to investigate Lynda's death," said Sgt. Bill

Raaymakers of the RCMP SouthWest Nova Major Crime Unit in a release.

"We hope that by adding this case to the rewards program, it will encourage someone to do the right thing and come forward with information, no piece of information is too small."

As part of the program, a reward of up to $150,000 is offered for any information pertinent to the case leading to an arrest and conviction.

"As a former law enforcement officer, I know how important it is that you speak with police and share what information you may have about this crime."

Anyone with information is asked to call the program at 1-888-710-9090 and must be willing to provide their name and contact information.
