    These couples have been previously referenced by me on the Sherman threads, just noting this new article on the outside chance that something gleaned from those murders could be applied in the S. case, fwiw, imo..
    Two midtown Toronto families killed at home, a year apart. What, if anything, connects their ‘overkill’ murders?
    Dec 5 2021
    ''Investigators wondered if antisemitism was involved in the Airst murders. The family had been slain on the eve of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement.
    Celia was active for Jewish causes, and had worked for the Holocaust committee and for a couple of years with the Jewish Defense League.
    “She was active in many charitable causes,” Rabbi David Monsson of Beth Sholom Synagogue told The Star. “She was always taking an interest in good causes.”
    ''Their son Avrom also had strong political views. At 13, he requested that funds for his bar mitzvah should be spent to plant trees in Israel rather than on gifts or donations to himself.''
    Ws thread.
    CANADA - Celia, Isaac & Avrom Airst, Toronto, 30 September 1979

    CANADA - Florence, 63 & Harold 64,Fagan, Toronto, 6 March 1978

    RBBM- Perhaps that's because at least one of them, and perhaps more, may believe that that they know who the killer is!

    IMO this case is about to be reclassified by TPS as a cold case- 4 years old now.

    You don’t know the definition of a cold case if you believe that.

    From your link, I think this sums it up quite nicely -

    Nobody knows anything about this case.

    Windsor,

    Toronto Star, Dec. 13.

    They are releasing images/information.

    They want the help of the public.

    It’s all behind a paywall.

    In Barry and Honey Sherman’s murder case, police fumbled while clock ticked
    Dec 13 2021
    ''Four years after billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman were murdered, Toronto homicide detectives are, for the first time, releasing images and other information from their case in the hopes the public can help them solve the crime.''

    This information — police will not say what it is — has been sealed in search warrant documents the Toronto Star has been arguing in court to have released since shortly after the investigation began.''

    This new article today contains a few bits of yet unknown info (to me anyways). Evidently, according to KD, TPS applied for search warrants in order to access the electronics found in the home (Barry’s BlackBerry, Honey’s iPhone, two iPads, a Toshiba laptop and a desktop computer). To do so, TPS had to produce evidence to prove that the devices actually belonged to the Shermans. Apparently, police screwed up their application(s), and were only able to initially satisfy the judge that the iphone belonged to HS. It took TPS another 3 weeks to reapply for a warrant for the other equipment, which finally satisfied the judge, and the warrant was granted.

    That’s it?

    Typical KD reporting style, he simply cannot resist dusting his news stories with allegations of police incompetence, to the point that I think he loses credibility. Can any of us say what a reasonable length of time would be for LE to prove to a judge that IT devices belong to the homeowner, aside from the fact they were found inside the home? What was found would seem to be what’s most significant - does anyone truly care the search warrant might be dated three weeks after the murders?

    Will the press conference be televised?
    This could be most interesting. There are some very interested parties who would love to know what the TPS have discovered.
    Likely the TPS will still hold back some key information they have.
    Curious to know if the request for public help will be specific, such as witnesses to certain locations at certain times.

    Apparently there will be a press conference tomorrow (Tuesday).
    In Barry and Honey Sherman’s murder case, police fumbled while clock ticked
    ''Homicide officer in charge Insp. Hank Idsinga and lead investigator Det.-Sgt. Brandon Price will provide the information and an update on their investigation Tuesday morning, sources say.''
