Investigators may be close to a making an arrest in a high-profile New Brunswick murder case.
Police in Saint John say they are closing in on a suspect in the Richard Oland homicide.
The body of the well-known businessman was found in his uptown Saint John office on Jul. 7, 2011. Since then, city police have been under increasing pressure to make an arrest.
Police have remained exceptionally tightlipped about the results of their investigation, but Saint John Police Chief Bill Reid suggested in an interview with CTV News Thursday night that the case has already been cracked.
“We’re very confident that the investigation team has the right suspect in mind as they go and process this investigation,” said Chief Reid. “As I said, we will certainly within a period of time - and I believe a short period of time – have made an arrest.”
Reid says the investigation is focused on one individual.
