The Toronto Police on Tuesday released the video of an individual identified as suspect in 2017 homicides of Barry and Honey Sherman.
In a statement released earlier today, the Toronto Police, said since December 2017, the investigative team has taken numerous steps to identify the person on the video, including requesting video analysis of law enforcement partners such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Ontario Provincial Police.
The statement further added that TPS also worked with the TPS Forensic Video Analysis Unit conducting Forensic Photogrammetry experiments, obtained judicial authorization to collect data from nearby cell phone towers, and conducted neighbourhood witness canvasses for information.
However, the Toronto Police said, these efforts have not resulted in the positive identification of the person in the video.
The officers located the bodies of Barry and Honey Sherman in 50 Old Colony Road after responding to a 911 call on Sunday, December 15, 2017. The cause of death was determined to be ligature neck compression.
“We have remained steadfast in our commitment to bring closure to the Sherman family, their friends, loved ones and the community,” said Detective Sergeant Brandon Price, lead investigator from Homicide.
Price further added “Through our investigation, we have determined that this individual’s purpose in the neighbourhood is unexplained. The timing of his appearance is in line with when we believe the murders took place. Based on this evidence, we are classifying this individual as a suspect. It is our hope that someone will come forward with a name when they recognize the individual’s walk, the way in which they kick up their right foot with every step, knowing that the person was or is connected to the Sherman family or the area on that day, at that time.”
The Toronto Police also added anyone who may recognize this person is asked to contact the investigative team at 416-808-7400, email@example.com or anonymously at Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com
