We’koma’q band officials have offered a $100,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the death of Cassidy Jean Bernard.
RCMP say officers responded to a call of a suspicious death at a home on Hwy. 105 in the First Nations community Oct. 24.
They say the 22-year-old woman from We’koma’q was found unresponsive.
Police say two infant children were at the home at the time, but were not harmed.
They say they don’t believe it was a random act; they haven’t provided an update in the case since Oct. 26.
Band officials say the murder has devastated Bernard’s children and family members, as well as the entire Mi’kmaw Nation and extended community, and they can’t sit idle.
They say someone has valuable information that can help RCMP with their investigation, and they’ll give $100,000 to the person- or divide that money among the people- whose information leads to the arrest and conviction of Bernard’s murderer.
