    Unusual and interesting new tactic, imo.

    Ontario Provincial Police are driving a photo of Frederick "John" Hatch across the province as part of a homicide investigation into the man's death.

    The photo is mounted on a billboard van, which will be driven from the Town of Erin, where the body of the 65-year-old man was found last December, to the Ottawa area.
    According to police, it is an "unprecedented" method of eliciting information from the public.

    After requests for information in Frederick Hatch’s death on Twitter came up empty, the OPP decided to take the investigation on the road. The OPP have attached pictures of Hatch, contact information and a very easy to read $50 000 reward on the side of one of their vans in hopes of reaching a different demographic. Police learned that Hatch was known to hitch-hike, so over the next couple of weeks the van will retrace his tracks and park for about a week at each of the communities that line highway 7 between Erin and Ottawa.

    7,500 people to get texts asking for info in Frederick John Hatch homicide, OPP say

    Texts in English, French will be sent Thursday to numbers that used a cell tower in area victim was last seen

    CBC News Posted:Last Updated: Oct 27, 2016

    In a move they're describing as "extraordinary" and "unprecedented," Ontario Provincial Police will send text messages to about 7,500 people on Thursday to ask for information about an unsolved homicide.

    Investigators are calling it a "digital canvass" — the high-tech equivalent of knocking on thousands of doors for information.
    The partially burned body of Frederick John Hatch, a 65-year-old from Toronto, was discovered by a motorist on the side of a road near Erin, Ont. — a small community about 50 kilometres west of Toronto.


    The body was found just before 6:45 a.m. ET on Dec. 17, 2015. It was located east of 10th Line off Wellington Road 124, just north of Erin.
    Hatch had last been seen in Ottawa the day before, at about 1 p.m., inside a Dollar Tree discount store near West Hunt Club and Merivale roads.

    Sarah Bowers-Peter, program coordinator with Crime Stoppers Guelph-Wellington, said Crime Stoppers is open to receiving any and all tips from the public related to Hatch.

    “The beauty of Crime Stoppers is that people are anonymous when they contact us,” she said. “There could be people who do have information currently and just aren’t comfortable stepping forward through regular police contacts,” she said. “Crime Stoppers is a way for the them to reveal that information safely, confidentially and anonymously. We encourage people to do so, especially in a case like this.”
    Tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIPS (8477). Call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or visit that nearest police authority. More information is available on the OPP website at www.opp.ca.
