LOWER WOLFVILLE, N.S. - Leslie Conrad was murdered 12 years ago, her body found near her Lower Wolfville home.
It’s a case that remains unsolved, and one I spoke about with her daughters Leah and Lacey in September, as they marked the 12th anniversary of Leslie’s death. The sisters also recently marked another milestone – Leslie would have turned 58 on Dec. 8.
Since the story was published Oct. 2, Leah Conrad says she has been contacted by people with information regarding her mother’s case, some of which she’d never heard before.
“I’ve had discussions with people who have things that have come up, or that they’ve heard about, that they are now feeling they can mention to me. This article is creating an opportunity for people to talk about it again,” she says.
Conrad says RCMP have not been in contact with her or Lacey since October.
Leah says the sisters will continue talking about her mother in the hopes speaking out will “keep the story at the forefront of people’s minds” and inspire more people to reach out.
She says that’s the most they can hope for at this point.
“Someone has done this to her – it wasn’t an accident, and she didn’t bury herself in a shallow grave on her own. Twelve years is a lot of time to think about what happened,” she says.
“Somebody did take her life, and they don’t deserve to be free. They’ve had 12 years of borrowed freedom, and that needs to be brought to justice.”
