Halifax Regional Police are asking the public to help identify a potential witness in the death of Ryan Michael Sawyer, who was found unresponsive near the Halifax Alehouse last month.
Police have previously said that officers responded to a report of a “disturbance involving several people” in the 1700 block of Brunswick Street around 1:15 a.m. on Dec. 24.
Sawyer, who was from Ajax, Ont., was found unresponsive on the sidewalk of Prince Street, just east of Brunswick Street. The 31-year-old was transported to hospital, where he later died.
Police confirmed the death was a homicide, but have said little else about the incident. A person was taken into custody the day Sawyer died, but was later released.
