Police continue to investigate Rossland murder

Six-month-old death of Tom Feeney remains unsolved

Six months after the home invasion and murder of Rossland resident Tom Feeney, police are still trying to find those responsible.

Police and investigators requested the public’s help in identifying those involved in the crime, and are asking, once again, for any information.

“Investigators have been following a number of tips,” said a press release, providing updates on the investigation. “(They) are still looking for more help in identifying the person or persons responsible for his death.”

Police received the initial call about the 75-year-old’s death on June 5, around 11 a.m. The call came in reporting a body at a residence on Feeney Road in Rossland. After arriving at the scene, police identified the body as the homeowner, Feeney.

“The preliminary findings suggested that this was a random incident, or a crime of opportunity that resulted in the tragic death of Tom Feeney,” said the updated press release.

”The BC RCMP Southeast District Major Crime Unit was called in to assist with the investigation.”

As well as finding Feeney’s body, police discovered there were several things were stolen from the home, and they are still looking for any information regarding the location of those items.

The stolen goods include a 40-inch Emerson LCD TV, five firearms including an 1874 Pedersoli/Cimarron Arms rifle with an octagon shaped barrel and .45 calibre Lyman, Schmitzer long range high performenace rounds.

Since the investigation began, police have determined there were more items missing than originally thought.

A Barnett crossbow with a broken string, a 30/30 lever action rifle, a double barrel break action shot gun and a clay pigeon thrower were added to the list of stolen items to keep an eye out for.

Investigators are asking anyone with any information about the murder or the location of the stolen items to call the tip line dedicated to the investigation at 1-877-987-8477, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
