Toronto police say a private investigation into the slayings two years ago of billionaire couple Barry and Honey Sherman has ended, but their own probe continues — and they want people who sent tips to the private tipline to repeat them now directly to police.
To that end, police have set up a telephone tipline and email address, Insp. Hank Idsinga told a media briefing Monday.
The Sherman family had hired a team of private investigators to conduct an independent probe. It included several former Toronto homicide detectives.
While Idsinga said the private team received 343 tips — information that was shared with police — it has now wrapped its work on the case, he said, citing the Sherman family.
Idsinga asked that anyone who submitted those private tips now resubmit them to Toronto police to avoid any loss of information. - CBC
Investigators said Barry and Honey were found dead in the lower-level pool area, reportedly hanging by belts from a railing on the pool deck and wearing their clothing. A post-mortem examination determined the Shermans died of “ligature neck compression.” It was also determined that the couple likely died two days before they were found on Dec. 13, 2017. - GlobalNewsCa
Police have also set up a direct email address for the case. Tips can be provided at email@example.com or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.
