The Regina Board of Police Commissioners has authorized a reward of 50-thousand dollars for information on the homicides of a Regina family four years ago. On August 6, 2010, 31 year-old Gray Nay HTOO, 28 year-old Maw MAW and three year-old Seven June HTOO were found deceased in their home on Oakview Drive. Their deaths prompted an extensive, complex investigation that is reaching its four-year mark. Today, the Board of Police Commissioners announced its approval for a 50-thousand dollar reward in the hope that persons with information in the case may come forward.
Currently the team investigating the murders is made up of five investigators. This team is dedicated full-time to the investigation. In the past four years, there have been as many as 25 Regina Police Service investigators assigned to the case, as well as numerous RCMP officers. The investigative team has worked in conjunction with various sections of the RCMP, the FBI and other police services utilizing multiple police investigative techniques to gather substantial evidence. The investigators believe there are people within the community who have information which could be crucial to this investigation and bring it to a successful conclusion. It is also believed that a reward may motivate those with information to come forward.
The reward guidelines are as follows:
- If you have information regarding this investigation, contact the Regina Police Service, Major Crimes Unit, by calling 306-777-6500.
- In order to qualify for the reward, the RPS requires persons to provide their name and address and a complete statement of their knowledge of the case to investigators. They may be required to testify. No confidentiality can be offered.

Please ensure you keep a dated copy of your claim letter and any receipts.
- Upon completion of the case in court where a conviction occurs, the Regina Police Service Board of Police Commissioners and the Chief of Police at their sole discretion will determine the portion of the reward to be paid to any claimant(s). Only persons who have filed a claim to the reward will be considered.
