Legal documents have just uncovered more details about the deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman in 2017. Investigators have not stopped investigating the deaths of these Canadian billionaire philanthropists, and court documents have recently been released following a court challenge from The Toronto star. It shows us more details about the discovery of the couple’s body in December 2017.
To begin with, we learn that their son Jonathan told the police that the Shermans had some enemies. In a statement to CBC News, Toronto police have commented on a number of people they consider to be of interest. They want the public to know that the case has not gotten cold.
“The investigation team has had a high level of cooperation during this very active and ongoing investigation and investigation steps are being taken every single day,” Toronto Police spokeswoman Connie Osborne said. They are dedicated to bringing closure and justice to the family and their community by solving this unsolved murder.
This year, in 2021, Toronto police have people of interest in the Sherman deaths. And the family is offering a reward of up to $ 1 million for more information about the killings. But let’s back up a bit.
Barry Sherman was 75 years old and the founder and chairman of the board of the generic drug giant Apotex, along with his seventy-year-old wife Honey, were found dead in the basement pool area of their home in Toronto in the North York neighborhood on December 15, 2017.
Their bodies were found side by side, their legs stretched out with belts lifted around their necks and locked to a pool railing. Their causes of death were considered ligature neck compressions, which is a form of suffocation.
Admittedly, it’s over a year ago that investigators gave the public a formal update on this unsolved murder. But there are now over 300 pages of recently released court documents that give us a clearer portrait of what has gone on with this case.
Police have obtained orders to search Sherman’s health, telephone and banking information and computers found in their home, as well as Barry’s office and laboratory in Apotex. Investigators were revealed to have been looking for possible financial motives for the double homicide.
In the weeks leading up to the unsolved murder, Apotex lost a $ 500 million lawsuit with a patent on a drug. They laid off more employees and there were more cuts. Barry’s longtime business partner Jack Kay told police he was sure it had nothing to do with the couple’s death.
Kay told investigators, “Barry would not be enchanted by Apotex’s financial situation as Apotex was only part of Sherman’s inventory and they have other money.” The family was estimated to be worth anywhere from $ 5 billion to $ 10 billion. Investigators still do not have a detailed understanding of the couple or their friends or even possible enemies.
Investigators described a frighteningly anxious call. It triggered one of the largest profile investigations into homicides in Toronto history. Barry and Honey’s real estate agent Elise Stern called police at 6 p.m. 11:45 Friday, December 15, 2017. Elise’s exact words were “They are dead.”
Stern and real estate agent Weidong Zhao, with two clients, found the discovery when they completed a showing of the two-story mansion that was for sale and listed for $ 6.7 million.
“Stern said it was very strange. They were far away and their heads were raised and hung on the railing that led into the pool, “said investigators. She later told police she thought the couple was doing “some weird yoga thing” shortly before they realized what was really going on.
