¡¡¡¡On the 30th anniversary of Carla Gail Strickland’s murder, Halifax Regional Police continue to look for the person or people responsible.

¡¡¡¡Investigators believe the 20-year-old went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday at a popular Halifax club on the evening on June 2, 1991.

¡¡¡¡She then headed to Albro Lake Beach with three other people, where they hung out until dawn.

¡¡¡¡According to the province’s crime reward program, one of the people she was with dropped her off at the Tim Hortons on Wyse Road at around 7 a.m. on June 3, 1991, reportedly so she could use a payphone.

¡¡¡¡That was the last time she was seen alive.

¡¡¡¡Just before 1 p.m. on June 5, 1991, police were called to the north side of Lake Micmac near Highway 118 where they found Strickland’s body.

¡¡¡¡The Medical Examiner Service determined her death to be a homicide.

¡¡¡¡Police believe there are people with information who could help them solve the case.

¡¡¡¡”We hope that the passage of time will encourage them to do the right thing and come forward with what they know,” said HRP in a news release.

¡¡¡¡”It is never too late to come forward and the smallest piece of information may be just what is needed to progress the investigation.

¡¡¡¡Those with information about Carla’s murder can call police at 902-490-5016 or submit an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.

¡¡¡¡The case is also part of the province’s Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program, which offers up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. All calls to 1-888-710-9090 are recorded and those who come forward need to provide their name and contact information, and may be called to testify in court.
