Police in Haliburton County are asking the public for help in hopes of finding more information about a death.

Last December, John Hatch was found dead just off Wellington Road 124 near the Town of Erin.

The day before, Hatch had been seen at a Dollar Tree Store in Ottawa, and police believe he may have hitchhiked.

OPP are sending a black and white van with pictures of Hatch through Central Ontario and it will eventually make its way to Highway 7.

If you have information about the death of Hatch you are asked to immediately contact OPP.

There is a $50,000 reward being offered for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Hatch’s death.
