Three years later, police still seeking answers in Feeney murder

It’s been just over three years since the murder of Rossland resident Tom Feeney.

It’s been just over three years since the murder of Rossland resident Tom Feeney, but police are no closer to finding who killed the man.

Feeney’s body was found in his home on June 5, 2014. The 75-year-old had apparently been killed during a robbery. Police called it a random incident, or crime of opportunity. They have not revealed exactly how Feeney died.

“The investigation into the homicide death of Tom Feeney continues,” says Cpl. Dan Moskaluk, the media relations officer for the RCMP’s South East District. “We are limited to what we can share with the public as is with all investigations of this nature.”

Police say several items were taken from Feeney’s home, including a 40-inch LCD television, a rare 1874 Pedersoli/Cimarron rifle with an octagonal barrel, a crossbow and other firearms.

In September 2015 police divers searched the Rossland reservoir, searching for any items that may have been discarded by the thieves after the crime.

“We are confident that someone may hold a lot of the answers to the mounting questions that Mr. Feeney’s family and his community have regarding his death,” says Moskaluk.

Investigators are asking anyone with any information about the murder or the location of the stolen items to call their local detachment, or the Crimestoppers line at 1-800-222-TIPS.
