For five years, the Star’s chief investigative reporter Kevin Donovan has covered the Sherman case, fought court battles to access documents on the police investigation and the Shermans and their estate, and wrote a book about it.

    Barry Sherman the Generous, the Brilliant, the Tough Negotiator. Honey Sherman the Ferocious, the Brave, the Fundraiser.

Riveting

Excellent podcast. I am hooked on the Barry and Honey Sherman murders and hope that someday soon their murderers will be brought to Justice.

I have my suspicions as to who hired the hit as do most who follow this. I hope he’s caught. And soon.

Love the story - expected better production

I’m addicted to this real life “who don it” case but my lord is the production value horrible..anytime a recording is played or the use a voice changer it becomes nearly impossible to understand ANYTHING being said!

bouticca ,

Note to self; don’t get murdered in Toronto

Stellar reporting. Pray that this case sees some resolution.
