A multimillion-dollar reward has been offered for information about the death of drug-company billionaire Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey, according to a Canadian lawyer.

Attorney Brian Greenspan said Toronto police haven’t properly handled the case. He said the billionaire’s family has set up a tip line and is offering up to 10 million Canadian dollars ($7.6 million) for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect, according to Vos Iz Neias and the Associated Press.

“We’re trying to light the fire,” Greenspan said. “To provide new incentive for the members of the public to come forward with information but also to light the fire under the Toronto police service.”

Sherman, the founder of generic drugmaker Apotex, and his wife were found dead by their basement pool in their Toronto mansion last December, the news site reported. “Greenspan said they were seated next to each other with ligatures pulled up around their necks and wrapped around a railing. The day after, some media outlets quoted unidentified police officials as saying the deaths appeared to be a murder-suicide. That upset the couple’s four adult children, who hired their own team of investigators. Police said six weeks later the couple was murdered.”

In a prepared statement to the Associated Press, the Sherman family said the murder conclusion “was expressed by the family from the outset and is consistent with the findings of the independent autopsy and investigation.”

It was way back in January that NBC News reported that following six weeks of investigation, “authorities now believe they have a double homicide on their hands, Det. Sgt. Susan Gomes said on Friday. She declined to discuss evidence, possible motives or suspects.

“The Shermans were found dead in a pool area, “hanging by belts from a poolside railing in a semi-seated position on the pool deck,” Det. Sgt. Susan Gomes said… “They were wearing their clothing,” Gomes added. The couple was last seen alive on the night of Dec. 13, and their bodies were discovered two days later, according to Gomes.”

Bernard Charles “Barry” Sherman, was a Canadian businessman and philanthropist who was chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc. With an estimated net worth of $3.2 billion at the time of his death, according to Forbes, Sherman was the 12th-wealthiest Canadian. Another publication, Canadian Business, stated his fortune at $4.77 billion, ranking him the 15th richest in Canada.

Sherman and his wife gave lots of money to worthy causes. For instance, they donated a record $50 million to the United Jewish Appeal, provided funds to build a major addition to the geriatric Baycrest center and to other Toronto-area community centers in Ontario. The couple were also major donors to the United Way. In addition, the Apotex Foundation sent over $50 million worth of medicine to disaster zones since 2007.

    Immediately the Police who are Government Employees, tried to Cover Up the Murder of Barry and Honey Sherman, who were found Hanging in there Basement on December 15, 2017. The Police claimed it was a Murder/Suicide… Barry killed his wife and then himself … This was a LIE and the POLICE Knew it. What else do the POLICE KNOW????????The family had every reason to question the Police Motives and this Government.Barry Sherman was developing a POT Pill … That one pill would cost Big Pharma 100’s of Billions in lost revenue. It is said that Barry’s Company Apotex, over the 40 years he was in business, cost Big Pharma approx. 100 Billion Dollars. This Pot Pill would dwarf that figure. Figure this: if one Band name medication makes Big Pharma 100 Billion Dollars; and the Pot Pill would replace hundreds of Different Brand name medication for all kinds of illness, depression, anxiety, cancer, epilepsy… etc… We are talking about Trillions of lost revenue for BIG PHARMA and the Banks…

    You forgot to proof read your 4th paragraph. It makes no sense. Look at your last line….

    Sherman, the founder of generic drugmaker Apotex, and his wife were found dead by their basement pool in their Toronto mansion last December, the news site reported. “Greenspan said they were seated next to each other with ligatures pulled up around their necks and wrapped around a railing. The day after, some media outlets quoted unidentified police officials as saying the deaths appeared to be a murder-suicide.
