Son of murdered N.B. businessman hires defence lawyer

Police yet to lay any charges for murder of Dick Oland

The son of murdered New Brunswick businessman Dick Oland has hired one of the province’s top defence attorneys, Gary Miller. The Fredericton-area lawyer, who used to head the New Brunswick Criminal Defence Lawyers’ Association, provided few details on his involvement with Oland’s 43-year-old son Dennis, aside from saying that he was hired “a while ago.” More than a month has passed since the murder took place, but police have yet to lay any charges. But they have suggested that Dick Oland was killed by someone he knew. The 69-year-old, whose family runs the Moosehead Brewing Company, was found dead on July 7 in a Saint John office building.
