Son is suspect in slaying of New Brunswick businessman Richard Oland: documents


SAINT JOHN, N.B. – Search warrants in the investigation of the slaying of businessman Richard Oland say his son Dennis is the suspect in the case.

A New Brunswick judge quashed the publication ban on the identities of those subject to the search warrants.

No arrests have been made since Oland was killed nearly two years ago.

The lawyer for Dennis Oland didn’t return a message seeking comment.

The elder Oland was found dead in his Saint John office on July 7, 2011.

Richard Oland was a member of the family that owns Moosehead Breweries Ltd., but left the company in the 1980s.

He also worked in the trucking business, at the Saint John Shipbuilding and Drydock Co., and as a director of several firms, including Eastern Provincial Airways, Newfoundland Capital Corp., and Ganong Bros.
