Investigators with the Thunder Bay Police Service continue to investigate the murder of 31 year old Conrad Bannon, who was killed in a shooting in 2021, and are seeking the public’s assistance to help further that investigation.

The incident occurred just after midnight on November 4th, 2021 when police responded to reports of shots fired at a home on Amelia Street.

There first responders located Bannon, who sadly succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Initially police in Southern Ontario arrested a 17 year old youth on first degree murder charges, however they were later dropped.

Now following the two year anniversary of Bannon’s murder, city police are urging members of the public who may have knowledge of the event or its circumstances to come forward.

Detective Inspector Jeremy Pearson says investigators remain open to every possibility in terms of the investigation.

“We’re not blinding ourselves to any potential outcome however we do believe at this time, as the investigation has progressed, that this incident was related to the illicit drug trade in the community.”

Pearson adds they do believe there is a connection to the Greater Toronto Area, but notes they are not blind to the fact there are local connections.

While it has been some time since the murder Pearson says there is still a foundation investigators are able to work with and any new information can build upon that.

Anyone who contacts the Thunder Bay Police directly on the non-emergency line and states they have information related to Bannon’s murder will prompt a response from investigators.

Tips can also be delivered anonymously by contacting  Crime Stoppers.
