I didn't read your link but the short form reads 'Torontosun.com/entertainment.' Sounds like Fox News to me. A tabloid

Have not seen the description "legs out straight" anywhere else, so I'm also questioning the reliability. moo
 
I brought otto's post forward from a previous thread.

I believe the family are convinced LE misinterpreted (overlooked) evidence from the CS. An independent investigation could successfully challenge any attempt to call this a murder suicide.

I am also convinced the ruling will be inconclusive. We have become accustomed to hearing cases being referred to an
inexplicable tragedy.

This is just my opinion & I really enjoy reading everyone's theories. I also have been wrong on more than one occasion. :couch:
:cow:

I find it quite likely that we won't hear anything more about this from the police. $4.8 billion can buy a lot of silence. We will likely start hearing about questionable findings from the family's private investigator on a regular basis. Classic case of controlling the media, then flooding it with your own narrative. In six months most people in this city will believe the Shermans were murdered and the police botched the case. In return John Tory will get a big fat campaign donation.
 
I just realized we have IDI and BDI.

There is no mention of anyone being added to the lawsuit in the article linked. Unless I'm going blind.

I didnt see it either. Since they are at the appeal stage I’m not sure that their would be a need to amend the pleadings - instead of Barry Sherman it would be the estate of...

The executor(s) will be responsible for instructing counsel. If the appeal fails, it’s likely the end of the line.
 
From Matou's link in thread 2. This was the first I'd heard of legs straight out. The more I learn the more I'm leaning toward double murder.

Snipped...
...The vehicles were removed and surveillance equipment in the house and neighbourhood has been secured. Sources also say there was a primary, or perhaps, secondary scene inside the home which has also been studied.

:please:
 
So they posted the floor plans and home info along with saying he is one of the richest people in Canada. Unbelievable. They should have immediately had a state of the art security system put in. We still do not know if they were robbed.

Was Apotex founder Barry Sherman the target of an enemy?

Could philanthropist Honey Sherman been a collateral victim in such a plot?

Instead of a murder-suicide or double suicide, could the couple — worth nearly $4.8 billion — have been victims of a ransom play?

Certainly, to be fair, Toronto Police are already hard at work with that as a goal. This is one of the largest homicide investigations, in terms of resources, in Toronto’s history even though it has not been deemed a homicide.

Police have been extremely thorough. The roof of the Sherman’s 12,000-square-foot mansion has been behind yellow tape since Dec. 15.

It has been surveyed with the help of a Toronto Fire ladder and bucket. The storm sewers have been swept, as has every inch of the home with modern forensic equipment.

The vehicles were removed and surveillance equipment in the house and neighbourhood has been secured. Sources also say there was a primary, or perhaps, secondary scene inside the home which has also been studied.
With or without political influences, throwing every resource possible at this puzzling case was the right call. There are so many questions unanswered and this has to be done right.

Certainly, if Barry Sherman was victim of a contract hit, if Honey Sherman was in the wrong place at the wrong time — or if it was a kidnapping attempt that went horribly wrong — Toronto Police detectives will uncover that evidence.

But if something was ever missed, Klatt is definitely a great investigator with the skills to discover it.
 
She may be right, but not much sympathy for the family apparent in that post.

I would infer from that that the police don’t like the full court press from the family, which is 0 per cent surprising. She is carrying a little water for the cops here.

And a December murder in the basement of a wealthy family's home. No sign of intruder and possibly a staged scene. I thought of Jonbenet right away...

SO if the bodies were found in a slightly sitting - or straightlegged position- how did they die from ligature neck compression from hanging?

Have you noticed they don't say it's from hanging - they say ligature neck compression. Which could mean strangulation with something else.

Initial post-mortem examinations showed the couple died from "ligature neck compression," or strangulation from tying or binding, the Toronto Police Service said on Sunday.

Private detectives are now investigating the mysterious deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman, the Canadian billionaires found strangled in their basement

I'm still of the belief this was staged to look like a hanging. jmo.
