Jewish Billionaire Couple From Toronto Were Murdered By Multiple People, Private Investigators Believe


Private investigators believe a prominent billionaire couple found dead in their Toronto mansion last month were murdered by multiple people two days before their bodies were discovered, Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Saturday, citing a source “with direct knowledge of the parallel probe” into the deaths of Honey and Barry Sherman.

The private investigation – which contained graphic details of the alleged ways the Shermans had been killed – at times contradicted early reports about an ongoing investigation by Toronto police, who have remained tight-lipped about the case over the past month.

The bodies of the Shermans were discovered Dec. 15 in the lowest level of their $7 million home, reportedly by a real estate agent who was preparing the mansion for an open house.


Barry Sherman, 75, was the founder of Canadian pharmaceutical giant Apotex and one of the richest people in the world. Forbes estimated his net worth at $3.2 billion, earning him the 12th spot on the list of the wealthiest Canadians. He’d appeared on the Forbes list of the world’s billionaires for 15 years.

Sherman started the company in 1974 after using his mother’s life savings to buy out a similar business started by his uncle; it manufactures and exports generic drugs to more than 115 countries.

The Shermans were known for their largesse, doling out tens of millions of dollars to universities, hospitals and the United Jewish Appeal, according to the Globe and Mail. Honey Sherman was a board member at several institutions: York University, the Baycrest Foundation and Mount Sinai Hospital. She had been chair of the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto and the Holocaust Education Centre.

They are survived by their four children, including one who had just given them a grandchild.

  1. Why did they not have bodyguards. If you are a billionaire you need bodyguards. When will these billionaires wake up. You need serious bodyguards. And not just one or two. Especially in this day and age. And even if you are worth a hundred million dollars you need at least cameras,a gun and a trained dog.

    • Maybe they were murdered by Big Pharma, which doesn’t like people developing generic drugs that undercut their monopoly.

  2. The murder of this couple was added to the Clinton’s Body List. Anyone having connections with the Clintons was found suicided which is why the police didn’t want to investigate their murder but the family hired private investigations.

    The Shermans founded the Apotex pharmaceutical company and supplied the Clintons with these drugs in Haiti.
