The dead bodies of Berry Sherman, the founder of the Canadian company Apotex and his wife Honey, were found in the Friday in the basement of their lavish villa in a rich neighborhood in the Canadian capital. The police in Toronto suspects that this drug tycoon and billionaire murdered his wife before committing suicide.
The real estate agent, who has taken some interested buyers to look at the house, found the bodies hanging by the pool in the basement of the house. Sherman, who turns 76 next month, had a fortune of $ 3.2 billion, and he and his wife were well-known philanthropists, who donated millions to charity.
Police said that the circumstances under which death took place were suspicious, but that there were no indicators of a break in the house.
However, sources close to the Toronto Sun investigation said there were doubts that Sherman had killed Hani, and then committed suicide. They believe that Honey was killed elsewhere on the property and that her body was then brought to the place where they were found.
Their neighbors, business colleagues and the most influential Canadian politicians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have expressed regret and condolences to the family and friends of the dead couple.
Barry and Honey Sherman recently offered the house for sale for about seven million Canadians, or $ 5.4 million. The villa has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two swimming pools and a garage for 14 cars, as well as a sauna, jacuzzi and tennis courts.
Sherman, who founded the Apotex company in 1974 and became enriched with the sale of cheap generic drugs, left his post as Chief Executive Officer in 2012. Sherman is on the list of the richest people in Canada according to Forbes.
