    The Toronto police announced on Friday, after six weeks of investigation, she considered now the death of the billionaire canadian Barry Sherman and his wife Honey as a double homicide.

    “We believe that they have been targeted,” said the head of the investigation, Susan Gomes, during a press briefing on Friday, without, however, want to give more details on the continuing investigation.

    The founder of the canadian pharmaceutical Apotex, Barry Sherman, age 75, and his wife Honey, a 70-year-old, were found without life, the 15 of December last, near the indoor swimming pool of their residence, in the area exclusive of North York, in Toronto.

    The police had already made clear in recent weeks, after the autopsy of the bodies of the two victims, that the Sherman had died by strangulation. The head of the investigation said more on Friday. “Barry and Honey Sherman were found dead in the basement of their residence is the swimming pool, hanging with the help of a belt to a guard rail in a semi-sitting position. They wore their clothes,” said Ms. Gomes.

    No trace of break-in had been noticed on the premises and it is their real estate broker who, remember, had made the grisly discovery of the bodies of the Sherman. These last had been seen alive for the last time on the evening of 13 December, two days before the discovery of their remains.

    The investigation is ongoing to find the perpetrators of the double murder. The survey manager, Susan Gomes, has said that there was a “long list” of people with whom the police wants to talk in the shortest possible time.

    The family shocked

    The couple’s children Sherman had hired a private firm to shed light on the death of their parents. According to the “Toronto Star”, the team of private detectives had already concluded the double homicide.

    Recall that a few hours after the announcement of the drama, the hypothesis of a murder followed by a suicide had been reported by several media outlets, but the family had categorically refuted this scenario and criticized the police in the Queen City. It is then that she decided to make his own medico-legal autopsy on the body of the missing.

    A fortune of nearly $5 billion

    The fortune of Barry Sherman was estimated to 4.77 billion $ by the magazine “Canadian Business”, making it the 15th Canadian the more rich.

    Apotex is the seventh-largest generic drug the world, one can read on the website of the company. In total, the company employs more than 11, 000 employees and worldwide annual sales amounted to more than $2 billion.
