UPDATE: Jeff Johnson Homicide

Hamilton Police are requesting assistance in identifying a vehicle associated with the homicide of Jeffrey Johnson late last year.

On December 6, 2019, at approximately 6:00 a.m., Jeff exited his home to go to work where he worked as a concrete contractor for a local Hamilton company. As he routinely walked outside to get into his vehicle, Jeff was shot and killed on scene by an unknown person or persons.

Since the murder of Jeff Johnson on December 6, Hamilton Police Major Crime investigators have yet to answer the question as to why Jeff was killed.

Jeff Johnson was unknown to the Hamilton Police Service. There is no evidence to support theories that he was involved in a criminal subculture such as drugs, weapons or traditional organized crime. There is also no evidence of any recent extramarital affairs or financial gain by his death.

Jeff Johnson was a husband and a loving father to his young son and daughter who are both under the age of eight.

Investigators have identified a vehicle associated with Jeff’s murder. This vehicle is believed to have conducted surveillance in the days leading up to the murder. This vehicle was also used on the day of the murder by the perpetrators.

This vehicle is described as the following:

  • Possibly a 2016-17 Honda Accord, sport or touring or touring V6 model
  • Dark gray with silver door handles
  • Sport rims
  • Four doors
  • Dual exhaust

This vehicle was observed arriving and leaving the crime scene on the day of the murder. The number of occupants and suspect description remains unknown. At this time, Investigators from the Major Crime Unit are pleading for the public’s assistance in solving this homicide.
