Attachment 1: 6417-12969045 - FINAL - William McIntyre 2020 April.jpg
On the evening of Saturday April 21, 1984, the body of 33-year-old Corporal William McINTYRE was located inside his apartment at 1300 Marlborough Court in the Town of Oakville. His death was as a result of a single gunshot wound to the head. At the time of his murder, Corporal McIntyre had eleven years of exemplary service with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). During his service he worked in southern Ontario in an undercover capacity.
Corporal McIntyre's murder was committed while he was off-duty and just before he was intending to travel to Kingston for a work assignment. Despite an exhaustive investigation into the murder, his case remains unsolved. In early 2020, a Joint Force Homicide Team was formed to continue the investigation, involving members of the Halton Regional Police Service and the OPP. Investigators are hopeful that the reward (as described below) will encourage witnesses to come forward with information that will generate new leads.
On behalf of the Halton Police Board and the Province of Ontario, a reward totaling $100,000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this murder. The $100,000 reward is payable in Canadian funds and expires in one year (from date of release) and shall be apportioned as deemed just by the Halton Police Board and the Solicitor General for the Province of Ontario and the Commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police, Thomas Carrique.
Any person with information in this case is asked to contact the Halton Regional Police – McIntyre Homicide Team at 905-825-4777 ext. 8969 / Homicide Tip Line 905-825-4776.
