The ban on issuing a court order means it can not update the media on whether Wekerle was in the place of death, the cause of death, or any other specifics, said Lendri.

"I can not comment on anything," said Lendri. "There's a ban on posting."

"I'm sorry I can not be more specific," he said.

On Wednesday, the lock and the front door chain blocked the entrance to the property of 80 acres, just west of the historic village of Cheltenham.

Signs published by "Guard Dog on Duty" and "Video surveillance of this property" were visibly displayed at the entrance of the property of the entrepreneur.

Jonathan Weir, 22, from Caledon was arrested at the scene on December 27 and is due to appear in the Orangeville court on January 21st to face charges of first-degree murder.

Wekerle, whose website describes him as "the rock star in the Canadian finance world, known for his precision in technology, biotechnology and media," bought the Caledonian property in 2010 for $ 3 million.

The property is famous for its annual humanitarian concert event, Wekfest, with works such as Snoop Dogg and Sloan.

Wacker's website said his other properties included the historic entertainment venue in Toronto, El Mocambo in the province of Padina. He is also a partner in the Wahlburgers Canadian franchise – the Boston-based restaurant chain, driven by actor / rapper Mark Wahlberg and his family, says his website.

Wacker's website also describes him as "the father of six children," who "donates millions of dollars to a wide range of philanthropic interests".

Swartz was described at Caledon Enterprise as an enthusiastic, caring volunteer for a friendly circle that helps children with disabilities.

He was also a student at Sheridan College, worked part-time in local affairs and was hoping to do business with an aquarium of fresh water.

"He was a very caring man," said Grossbaum. "Angel of a Child".

Weir was enrolled as a friend with one of Facebook's daughter Becker.
