A lawyer hired by the family of billionaire couple Barry and Honey Sherman has provided an update on the private investigation into the couple’s deaths.
At a press conference Friday afternoon, Brian Greenspan, counsel for the Sherman family, shared the new steps investigators are taking to catch the killer.
Greenspan told media that the Sherman family is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect responsible for the deaths of the billionaire couple, whose bodies were found in their home last December.
A tip line has been set up that will be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week and anyone with information can call 1-833-668-0001. The line is now active.
According to police, on December 15, at 11:44 am, officers responded to a call at 50 Old Colony Road in North York, where investigators discovered the Barry and Honey Sherman deceased, with belts around their necks attached to a railing near their indoor pool.
Police say post-mortem examinations were carried out and the cause of death for both victims was ligature neck compression, meaning strangulation.
The Shermans were last seen alive on Wednesday, December 13, and made no contact with family or friends.
Barry Sherman is the founder of Canadian pharmaceutical giant Apotex, and according to Forbes, Sherman was one of Canada’s billionaires, with Apotex’s medicines filling over 89 million prescriptions a year in Canada alone, and annual global revenues of $1.5 billion.
The Shermans were well known in Canada and honoured with the award for Outstanding Philanthropist by the Association of Fundraising Professionals of Greater Toronto.
