    Billionaire couple Barry and Honey Sherman were found hanged in the pool room of their mansion

    This reminds me of the Zahau case. Officials are saying suicide, but it sounds weird.

    Some stunning new details about the gruesome discovery of the bodies of Toronto billionaires Honey and Barry Sherman have investigators scratching their heads on why were they killed?

    Was this a double homicide? A murder-suicide?

    In what Toronto Police call the ?suspicious deaths? of Apotex founder and owner Barry Sherman and his popular and charitable wife, Honey that have shocked the city, there are as many questions as answers.

    Homicide detectives and forensic experts were working hard Monday to solve the bizarre case involving one of Canada?s richest and most philanthropic couples.

    And new information offers an even more disturbing look into what a real estate agent and police found in the pool area of their home.

    Sources say investigators found the Shermans, side by side, in their windowless pool room, each with a men?s leather belt wrapped around their necks and tied to the pool railing. Both had on jackets that were pulled ?behind their backs? and rolled down over their arms.

    It is believed the camera in the pool area had been disconnected.

    So far, police are not calling this a homicide but homicide squad detectives are on the case. Police spokesman Mark Pugash says it is still being treated simply as a suspicious death.

    There are so many questions, so few answers and even more theories.

    What we know:

    ? The Shermans died Thursday inside their 12,440 square-foot Old Colony Rd. mansion which was up for sale for $6.9 million.
    ? They were not found until 11:45 a.m. Friday.
    ? There was no sign of forced entry and no suicide note.
    ? The Shermans were planning to build a new home in Forest Hill.
    ? Toronto Police said they are not currently looking for suspects.
    ? The couple had scheduled trip this week to Florida.
    ? Autopsies Saturday and Sunday indicate the Sherman?s died from ?ligature neck compression?
    Sources say police believe they are dealing with a murder-suicide and that Mrs. Sherman?s body may have been moved from a secondary scene inside the home to the pool room.

    But the assertion this could be a murder-suicide was forcefully rejected by the Sherman?s children, Lauren, Jonathon, Alexandra and Kaelen.

    ?We are shocked and think it?s irresponsible that police sources have reportedly advised the media of a theory which neither their family, their friends nor their colleagues believe to be true.?

    In a statement, they urged police ?to conduct a thorough, intensive and objective criminal investigation,? they wrote.

    ?Our parents shared an enthusiasm for life and commitment to their family and community totally inconsistent with the rumours regrettably circulated in the media as to the circumstances surrounding their deaths,? the statement read.

    Forensic officers in white suits ? sometimes carrying bags of evidence ? were coming and going from the mansion on Monday.

    Meanwhile, police have not commented on a tweet from Steve Paikin, of TVO?s The Agenda, that he had ?heard from a trusted source that an alleged law enforcement investigation was closing in on the Shermans.?

    It is common knowledge that Sherman, 75, was often involved in business litigation and had been named in a thrown-out lawsuit with relatives seeking part of his near $5-billion.

    But so far police are not calling this a double murder ? something not sitting well with friends and some neighbours.

    ?I think it was a murder,? said Eddie Gilbert, the Shermans? next door neighbour for 15 years. ?Of course it was. What else would it be? How could he pick her up and put her on a railing? She was a bigger gal.?

    Gilbert and his wife, who have socialized with the Shermans, added with a wedding of one child coming up in the spring and a grandchild on the way, suicide just doesn?t add up.

    If the investigators agree, a police source says, detectives will not hesitate to reveal such a determination ?in front of the cameras.?

    So far, however, Pugash reported no updates.

    Benjamin?s Park Memorial Chapel says on its website that a funeral for the couple is planned at 11 a.m. on Thursday at the International Centre in Mississauga.

    The house they died in was for sale for almost $7 million.

    I'm going to have to pay for preemie just to edit. Isn't Brian and Honey the name of the couple on Fresh Off the Boat?

    RIP Brian and Honey.

    Canadian billionaire and wife may have been killed, report says, conflicting with murder-suicide theory

    Despite previous reports that a Canadian billionaire and his wife died in a murder-suicide, a private investigation has reached another conclusion: that Barry and Honey Sherman were allegedly killed in a double-homicide.
    Now, the Toronto Star is reporting the Shermans may have been murdered in a contract killing, citing new evidence from a private family investigation that included a second autopsy that was conducted shortly before the funeral.

    Both Shermans died by “ligature neck compression” a first autopsy of the bodies concluded. And initial reports said that the couple died by hanging.

    But the new autopsy determined that men’s leather belts were reportedly used strangle the couple and also determined that they did not die by hanging.

    The couple were reportedly found seated at the side of the pool at their house. They were facing away from the pool, according to the Toronto Star. The remaining end of each belt tied around their necks was then looped around “a low railing that surrounds the pool,” in order to hold the couple in place, according to the paper.

    The second autopsy of their bodies determined that each person’s wrists were possibly tied together at some point, according to the Toronto Star, though their hands were not bound at the time the bodies were found.

    Sources also told the Star that the couple were most likely strangled before being tied to the railing.

    Despite the evidence from the family’s private investigation, the Shermans’ deaths continued to be classified as “suspicious,” Mark Pugash, a spokesman for the Toronto Police Department, told the Toronto Star.

    It took a private investigation to discover this? Obviously people with lots of money are going to be targeted.

    Toronto police are now treating the deaths of billionaire couple Barry and Honey Sherman as a double homicide.

    Det. Susan Gomes made the announcement at a news conference on Friday, saying it?s believed that the couple was targeted.

    The Shermans? bodies were discovered in their mansion on Dec. 15. An autopsy found that the couple died from ?ligature neck compressions.?

    Barry Sherman, 75, was the founder and former CEO of the generic drug company Apotex. Honey Sherman, 70, was a well-known philanthropist involved in numerous charitable endeavours.

    After more than a month of combing through the Shermans? home, property and vehicles, police released the house on Friday to private investigators hired by the family.

    Last week, the Toronto Star?s chief investigative reporter Kevin Donovan told CTV News Channel that the private team of investigators conducted a second autopsy and found that the Shermans? wrists were bound at some point ? pointing to murders.

    Cousin of murdered Canadian billionaire says he fantasized about decapitating him
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toront...usin-1.4514176

    In a wide-ranging interview with The Fifth Estate, Winter said he told his psychiatrist that in the past, he had fantasized about murdering Barry Sherman.

    "I would talk about killing Barry, and it was very graphic," Winter said. "He would come out of the parking lot of Apotex, and I'd be hiding behind a car, and I'd just decapitate him. I wanted to roll his head down the parking lot, and I'd sit there and wait for the police."

    Who admits something like that while the investigation is still going in lol?! This made me think he was jealous of the attention his cousin was getting and wanted some for himself. Crazy.
