    MISSISSAUGA – thousands of people attended Thursday the funeral of billionaire Barry Sherman and his wife Honey, who were murdered last week in Toronto.

    According to the newspaper “The Globe and Mail”, up to 10,000 people took part in the funeral service at the International Centre in Mississauga, a suburb of the Queen City, including the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.

    The founder of the Apotex pharmaceutical billionaire Barry Sherman, age 75, and his wife Honey, 70, were found dead last Friday in their home in upscale neighbourhood of North York, two deaths considered suspicious by Toronto police.

    The couple, who had recently sold his house the way Old Colony in the amount of $ 6.9 million, was recognized for her philanthropic activities. Moreover, it is their real estate broker who has found the body of Sherman, who had four children, three daughters and a son.

    The family has rejected the information from an anonymous source, the Toronto police, and relayed the last weekend by all the media of the country, to the effect that the two deaths were attributable to a case of murder followed by a suicide.

    Since then, it has been learnt that the two victims would be dead by strangulation using a rope or a wire.

    The clan Sherman has also made it clear that he intends to conduct his own investigation parallel to the one that is still ongoing within the police of the canadian city.

    The fortune of Barry Sherman was evaluated to 4.77 billion $, making it the 15th Canadian rich according to the magazine “Canadian Business”. Apotex employs 11 000 people and its annual sales are valued at $2 billion.
