Author/Contributor: Jeffrey A.

Steven Michael Hall

File Number: 104200178

On April 27, 1996, Kelly Weisner dropped her brother off at a gas station in the Chester Basin, N.S. area. She would be the last family member to see Steven Hall alive, and 24 years later, his murder remains unsolved.

"I pulled up and he got out of the car, looked in and said, 'See you later sis,' shut the door, I looked in my rearview mirror, and that was the last I saw of him," she recalls of the last time she saw her brother.

Steven Hall disappeared on Saturday, April 27, 1996. He left his parent's home in Seffernville, Lunenburg County, around 10:30 AM. Mr. Hall paid a bill at the Ultramar in Chester Basin. While at the service station, Mr. Hall was seen having a brief conversation with a person in a vehicle at the gas pumps. Mr. Hall last seen hitchhiking on Highway #3 towards Chester.

Weisner, who was 18 at the time, says Hall told her he was planning to hitchhike to his girlfriend's home in Chester, N.S. which wasn't unusual for the 21-year-old.

"A couple of days later got a phone call from his girlfriend, asking if we had seen or spoken to him, and that's when it started cluing in to us that something's not right," she says. "You always heard from Steven. You always knew where he was, he was always calling, bugging somebody for something or a ride."

The family contacted police, who searched the area, handed out flyers and put up posters.

Hall's body was discovered on November 23, 1996, in a wooded area on the Hogg Lot Road, which is off Highway #14, approximately 13 kms North of the Chester area. This was seven months after his disappearance. It was determined that he died of unnatural causes. An extensive investigation ensued, however, no criminal charges have been laid.

Although this investigation remains unsolved, it is still ongoing.

Anyone with information about Hall's case is asked to contact the RCMP or the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.

$150,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Steven Michael Hall.
