Dominion, Nova Scotia - The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Harold James "Buster" Slaunwhite.

On September 10, 2006, "Buster" Slaunwhite was found murdered in his residence at 97 Brook Street, Dominion, by family members. Mr. Slaunwhite's residence is situated near an area that was a hangout for local youths.

On September 9, 2006, the investigation revealed that "Buster" Slaunwhite was last observed operating his motor vehicle, a 2005 blue Ford Taurus, Nova Scotia license plate BBV-949, during the daytime. "Buster" Slaunwhite was an 83 year old veteran who had served his country in World War II as a medic. He had been in good health before his tragic death and had recently taken a trip with his son.

Joanne reached the store, but the clerk was busy with other customers. Joanne went outside to use a pay phone. She called the operator for the number at the Legion and then phoned her stepfather, who arranged to pick her up. When he arrived at the store a half-hour later, she was gone.

In 2008, Joanne's mother made an impassioned plea for an unidentified man who was seen with her daughter shortly before she vanished to finally speak to police.

Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Harold James "Buster" Slaunwhite should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.

The reward is payable in Canadian funds and will be apportioned as deemed just by the Minister of Justice for the Province of Nova Scotia. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.
