It’s the first public indication in the 16 months since the billionaire Apotex founder and his wife were strangled that the police are getting somewhere. The detective also told an Ontario Court of Justice hearing that within a week police are expecting a “high volume” of electronic records they have been trying to obtain since January, and that at least one person they want to interview has refused to speak to police.

Police have launched a murder investigation and are hunting for one suspect who is still at large. One man has died and two other people are seriously injured after a spate of stabbings in Birmingham city center.

The officer attending was then stabbed several times and his injuries are serious, but not life threatening.

Those charges have been upgraded to attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Racette-Beaulieu is scheduled to appear in Brandon court on May 2.
