Halifax Regional Police are still looking for answers into the murder of Kaylin Todd Diggs two years after his death.
Early on Aug. 11, 2012, Diggs was assaulted near the corner of Argyle and Sackville streets. When officers arrived shortly after 3:45 a.m., they found Diggs lying on the ground in Halifax’s bar district, unresponsive.
He was transported to hospital where he passed away a short time later. An autopsy concluded Diggs died as a result of injuries sustained in the assault and his death was ruled a homicide.
The Nova Scotia Department of Justice says investigators learned Diggs had left a Halifax bar and was injured as he tried to help a friend who was being assaulted by a group of males.

Diggs's death sparked anti-violence rallies in Halifax. At the time, Quentrel Provo, one of the organizers of the Stop the Violence movement, said he wants to honour Diggs and all others who have died violently.
"It's heartbreaking. No words can explain how we feel," he said.
"Growing up in East Preston and North Preston you know, I've seen a lot of deaths over the past few years, but it's happening everywhere...violence is affecting everybody at all walks of life."
