Police Confirmed That Billionaire Couple Barry And Honey Sherman Were Murdered

Police Confirmed That Billionaire Couple Barry And Honey Sherman Were Murdered”

Barry Sherman, 75, founder of Canadian pharmaceutical giant Apotex, and Honey Sherman, 70, were dressed when found, police said. The post-mortem examination concluded that both deaths were caused by "ligature neck compression", signaling a type of strangulation.

The Shermans' residence was so large that detectives spent six weeks inside examining evidence, Gomes said. The police did not find any signs of forced entry into the home. She would not say if anything had been stolen or if any suspects had been identified.

Following the gruesome discovery, several media outlets quoted unidentified police sources as saying the Apotex Pharmaceutical Holdings Inc. founder and his wife died in a murder-suicide.

"Private investigators hired by the family had already deemed the deaths of Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey, as murders, and cops now concur, according to CBC News".

Police have released the home back to the family.

"For them it's been hard to balance their patience with their frustration with us and our investigation - not unlike any other family who have suffered such a sudden and profound loss", Gomes said. "They have been understanding, co-operative and hopeful that this investigation can give them some answers".

On Friday morning, Toronto Police were seen taking down the police tape at the Sherman home and leaving. Police have taken 125 witness statements and analyzed surveillance video in the neighborhood. "We ask anyone to come forward with anything they may think is valuable to the investigation". "Perhaps I'm surprised that hasn't happened".

Along the way he amassed a vast fortune, recently estimated by Canadian Business magazine at $4.77 billion, making him the 15th richest person in the country.

As they became wealthy, the couple became known for philanthropy. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attended the funeral and Sherman is posthumously due to receive one of the country's highest civilian honors this year.

Gomes said Friday that from the start, investigators were open-minded as they considered the evidence before them.

Separately, Apotex said on Friday that its Chief Executive Jeremy Desai had resigned and would be replaced by his predecessor and company co-founder Jack Kay.

The allegations have not been proven in court and Apotex, Sandhu and Desai have filed motions to dismiss the complaint.
