Today marks the 21st anniversary of one of Nova Scotia’s most baffling unsolved murders.
Police have renewed a call for information on the death of 18-year-old Andrea King, who was reported missing on Jan. 4, 1992.
King flew to Halifax from New Westminster, B.C., to do some travelling and find work on Jan. 1, 1992.
Police say she called her sister from the airport in Halifax, saying she had arrived and was on her way in to the city, where she planned to stay at a hostel.
King promised to phone her family with the address of where she was staying, but they never heard from her again.
They reported her missing to the RCMP in Surrey, B.C. three days after she landed in Halifax.
A missing person investigation was conducted in both Halifax and New Westminster but attempts to locate King were unsuccessful. Police were unable to identify anyone who had contact with King after she arrived in Nova Scotia.
Her remains were eventually discovered in a wooded area in Lower Sackville, near the Sackville Industrial Park, on Dec. 22, 1992.
Police say they are still investigating King’s death and are asking anyone with information to contact any police agency in Nova Scotia, Crime Stoppers, or the Nova Scotia Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
