The circumstances surrounding the death of Barry Sherman, founder of the drug giant Apotex, and his wife, are still mysterious …

A mysterious death … The Toronto police announced Sunday that Canadian billionaire Barry Sherman, founder of the Apotex pharmaceutical group, and his wife Honey had died by strangulation, without clarifying the enigma surrounding these “suspicious deaths.”

 

The medical examiner, after the autopsies, concluded that the deaths of both victims had been caused by “strangulation in the neck,” said the police.
No hypothesis is therefore dismissed by the investigators on the death of this couple of septuagenarians philanthropists, whose memory was greeted by the highest political leaders, the organizations generally recipients of their donations or the Apotex laboratory.

According to local media reports, the real estate agent who has been responsible for selling for almost $ 7 million ($ 4.6 million) of the Sherman House in a wealthy neighborhood of Toronto for one month gave the alert on Friday when he discovered the spouses, 75-year-old Barry Sherman and 70-year-old Honey Sherman, hanging on a balustrade by the indoor pool.

The suicide thesis blasted by the couple’s children
No break-ins were found in this house, a newspaper source told a police source. According to her, after killing his wife and hanging the body, Barry Sherman would have hanged himself at his side. This scenario seemed privileged Friday by the police who had then indicated to look for “no suspect”.

But the thesis of murder followed by suicide was blasted Saturday by the Sherman children: “we are shocked” by “a theory that neither their family, their friends, nor their colleagues believe”. Lamenting the unsupported rumors, the descendants called on the police for a “thorough” investigation to shed light on “these tragic deaths.”
“Our parents shared an enthusiasm for life and a commitment to their family and community totally incompatible” with the rumors about “the circumstances surrounding their deaths,” according to the release of the children.
A description that fits poorly with a premeditated gesture or the acting out of a depressed individual, especially since, according to local media, the couple had given a few days ago to meet friends in Florida to the end of year celebrations.

Sherman was among Canada’s 20 richest people
Barry Sherman created Apotex, a generic drug company, in 1974, and was still chairman of the board. This company employs more than 11,000 people worldwide, more than half of whom work in more than 20 locations across Canada.

According to Forbes magazine, Barry Sherman was among the 20 richest people in Canada, with a fortune valued at C $ 4.7 billion (€ 3 billion).
