Halifax Regional Police have announced to have arrested the key suspect wanted in connection with a decade-old homicide from Ontario. According to the officers, 31-year-old Shilo Marcino Beals have been charged with first-degree murder and six weapons-related offences in the 2004 shooting death of 28-year-old Kevin James Bowser.
At the time of incident, Halifax police answered a report of a shooting incident on Uniacke Street at around 10 p.m. on July 10, 2004. Upon their arrivals at the scene, police officers claimed to have found Bowser suffering from gunshot wounds, soon after which he was pronounced dead. While the investigation concluded Beals to be the prime suspect, it failed to arrest him since. Consequently, investigators decided to issue a Canada-wide warrant for Beals’ arrest last month. Thereafter, police confirmed to have arrested the suspect from Cherry Brook, N.S. at a home on Highway 89 in New Tecumseth, Ont. on Wednesday morning.
