It has been a year since billionaires Sherry Barry and Honey have been found dead in their mansion in Toronto in an incredible case that was first reported as a suicide murder, but later a police abduction was awarded.
Since then, kill detectives have huddled through unparalleled pieces and interviewed more than 200 witnesses in the case. However, the police have not yet made an arrest.
Toronto Star Kevin Donovan's Investigating Chief Executive, who has been reporting on the case since the beginning, told CP24 that he believed that the Toronto police investigation had been graded back in recent months. He also said he believed they were not close to holding the convicted or convicted.
"There's something that I think they are calling some cool case right now," he said on Thursday.
As the questions continue to turn for Toronto billionaires deaths, CTVNews.ca looks back on everything we know about the case up to this point.
Who were they
Barry Sherman, 75, was the founder and former CEO of Apotex's generic drug company. His wife Honey, 70, was a prominent humanitarian who was active in a number of charitable attempts.
When were they last seen alive?
The last couple was seen live on Tuesday 13, 2017.
How were they found?
On December 15, 2017, the two real estate agents found a semi-sitting position with belts sliding around their railing coats next to the indoor pool in the couple of mansions of the couple in North York.
First, the police described deaths as "suspicious." They also said there were no signs of home enforcement access.
Shortly after discovering the bodies, the media reported quoting unknown police sources that researchers worked on the theory that it was a murder suicide. The Shermans family argued publicly about that idea.
In October, Toronto Police Chief Executive Mark Saunders refused his labels to be labeled as a murder-suicide.
"We did not say that. And I want to be very clear about that," he said.
He performed an autopsy
An autopsy was performed on the bodies the day after the bodies found. The police said the couple had died of "leak throat compression". Although the slaughter team had taken the autopsy investigation, the police did not officially control the deaths of a double targeted slaughter until January 26.
Unhappy with the police force of Toronto on the case, the Sherman family employs a team of former kill detectives and forensic experts to conduct their separate investigation.
The Toronto lawyer, Brian Greenspan, who represents the private team of researchers, said that Shermans' bodies had been staged after their deaths in a "very deliberate way". It has also accused Toronto police from failing to collect key pieces of evidence inside the house, including 25 palm prints and fingerprints.
Family offer award
In October, the Sherman family offered a prize of $ 10 million to anyone with information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect in the murders. They also set up a call center for suggestions on the case.
Where the investigation is now standing
Toronto Star correspondent Kevin Donovan said the police still call Sherman's murder's "active investigation." In late September, Donovan told the police that he had one full-time officer working on the case with other officials occasionally helping.
From mid-December, Donovan said the police had implemented 40 search securities of mobile phones and bank records, but do not know who they belong to, or why researchers are looking for.
Donovan also reported that he had been investigating information about the Sherman estate, which is sealed by the Superior Court Court order. He said that Honey Sherman did not have a will, or his will was not discovered, which complicated the matter.
Lawyer Brian Greenspan said Sherman's family were open to working with the police on the investigation, despite their tensions.
"Sherman's family continues to be a belief, by working together, that we will increase their chances of finding justice," he said.
