John Connelly’s death: A family fights for answers

For nearly 20 years, Toronto police have maintained that John Connelly died by suicide after he jumped off his 10-storey apartment building in 2001. His parents have been on a mission ever since to disprove the official cause of death and open a homicide investigation. But as Bob McKeown reports, the Connelly family has reached the end of the line: authorities stand by their decisions, the case remains closed and the law says they are not able to sue police over the investigation. The Fifth Estate brings John Connelly’s mystery back to life — and more of the story the Connellys want you to know about.
