Toronto police identified a person three years ago who was interested in the high profile murders of a Canadian pharmaceutical billionaire couple, but did not make an arrest.
Barry Sherman and his wife Honey were found dead in their Toronto mansion in late 2017. Police initially said they were treating the case as a « targeted » double homicide, but there has been little news of the investigation since then.
However, on Wednesday a police spokeswoman confirmed a report in the Toronto Star that a « person of interest » had been identified but not arrested. They didn’t give any details.
Barry Sherman founded Apotex in 1974 and made it one of the largest generic drug companies before stepping down as managing director in 2012.
There was no evidence of forced entry into the house and although police labeled the deaths « suspicious », they also said they were not looking for a suspect.
The Sherman family have criticized the police’s handling of the deaths and hired their own private investigator to investigate the case. The detective completed the work last year but did not provide details to the public.
In 2018, the family offered to set up their own betting line and a reward of up to 10 million. Offer C $ (7 $). 6m) for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect.
