Dryden OPP offer $50,000 for information on 2018 murder

The 'intentionally damaged' remains of Henry Stone-Arnold were found just outside of Dryden in August 2018

DRYDEN, Ont. -- Police are looking for any information regarding the disappearance and death of Henry Stone-Arnold, a 28-year-old Dryden man who police believe was murdered in August of 2018.

Exactly one year after he was last seen, Dryden OPP hosted a press conference on Thursday to update the public, and announced a $50,000 cash reward from the provincial government for anyone who has information regarding Stone-Arnold's death.

Stone-Arnold was last seen on Aug. 8, 2018 at about 11 p.m. and police say he was believed to have been in the Dryden area at the time.

His vehicle was later located on Highway 594, about one kilometre west of Dryden. 

On Aug. 17, 2018, OPP officers located human remains on a private property on Trist Road in Van Horne Township, located just outside of Dryden.

A post-mortem examination conducted by the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service in Toronto determined the remains to be that of Stone-Arnold.

Police say the evidence collected and examined during the autopsy and police investigation, indicates that Stone-Arnold was murdered and that his body was intentionally damaged after his death.

Criminal investigators and other specialty units have continued the homicide investigation under the direction of Detective Inspector Randy Heida of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch.
