Cops confirm billionaire couple died in 'targeted' double murder

Cops confirm billionaire couple died in 'targeted' double murder

"Facts guide our focus", she said.

An autopsy found the cause of death to be "ligature neck compression", meaning strangulation.

"Both Honey and Barry Sherman were, in fact, targeted", Toronto police Detective Sgt. Susan Gomes said at a press conference.

Police say couple were last seen alive on the evening of 13 December and had no communication with family since then. They were found dead two days later, hanging from belts from a pool railing in their home, Gomes said.

Police said they are treating the case as a double murder, but declined to say if they had any suspects.

"We haven't developed any suspects outside of understanding that people are outstanding for, or a person is outstanding for, this event".

The day after the bodies were found, prominent media outlets quoted unidentified police officials as saying it appeared to be a murder-suicide.

"Private investigators hired by the family had already deemed the deaths of Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey, as murders, and cops now concur, according to CBC News".

"The announcement by the Toronto Police Service that the tragic deaths of their parents are being investigated as a double homicide was anticipated by the Sherman family", the statement said.

She said the family was finding it hard to "balance their patience with their frustration with us and our investigation". For the past six weeks, investigators have been scouring the home, which was only released Friday morning to the family. Police have taken 125 witness statements and analyzed surveillance video in the neighborhood.

Apotex Inc. president and CEO Jeremy Desai resigned from the generic drug giant Friday while facing a lawsuit alleging he and the company accepted trade secrets leaked from a competitor.

The detective, who said officers were speaking to a "significant list" of people, appealed to anyone with any information that might help the investigation to come forward. "Perhaps I'm surprised that hasn't happened".

Barry Sherman was named Canada's 15th richest person in Canada, with a stated fortune of $4.77 billion (CAD). The couple's hands were not tied when they were found. They gave tens of millions to the United Jewish Appeal, donated to a geriatric hospital in Toronto and sent medicine to disaster zones.
