Sherman murder case: Police have working theory and ‘an idea of what happened’

The Toronto Police homicide squad has a working theory in the Barry and Honey Sherman murder case and detectives have “an idea of what happened,” one of the lead investigators told a court Wednesday.

It’s the first public indication in the 16 months since the billionaire Apotex founder and his wife were strangled that the police are getting somewhere. The detective also told an Ontario Court of Justice hearing that within a week police are expecting a “high volume” of electronic records they have been trying to obtain since January, and that at least one person they want to interview has refused to speak to police. Others they want to speak to may have left the country or simply cannot be located, the investigator told court.
