Breaking: 82nd doctor and wife found dead were strangled, police say, after family upset they said murder suicide


Update 2:

Homicide detectives have now taken over the investigation into the deaths of two pharmaceutical billionaires that police have deemed “suspicious.”

A police source previously told CBC News that someone outside the Sherman family discovered the bodies, but police remain tight-lipped about the investigation.

Toronto homicide Det. Brandon Price told reporters outside the couple’s home on Saturday that police “cannot say 100 per cent with certainty” whether or not foul play was involved.

Price said there were no signs of forced entry into the home, and that police were not searching for any outstanding suspects.

(What? So homicide detectives are brought in but they’re not looking for any suspects, does this mean they are still saying Barry Sherman killed his wife and then himself? And if he didn’t- how did they end up both dead if the authorities are not looking for outstanding suspects?!

When I did this story I didn’t even realize Barry Sherman (may he rest in peace) was DR. Barry Sherman (MIT). I also didn’t know that, as the CBC explained, he was “constantly battling ‘Big Pharma.'” All news to me.

Sadly, his death marks #82 in our unintended series.

Our hearts go out to the family and loved ones (who have made a public statement below shocked and outraged by what cops are saying) of Dr. Sherman and his wife, Honey.

–End of Update–

The bodies of Bernard Sherman, 75, also known as Barry, and his wife, Honey, 70, were found around noon on Friday in their mansion in the North York district of Toronto by the police, who arrived in answer to a 911 call. The couple are survived by their four children and grandchildren.

Reports say their bodies were “hanging side by side” next to their pool. Police are now investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide.

However, their family and children urged the Toronto Police Services to conduct a “thorough, intensive and objective criminal investigation,” 1 and then asked the media to wait to report on the cause of death until after a full investigation was done:

“Our parents shared an enthusiasm for life and commitment to their family and community totally inconsistent with the rumors regrettably circulated in the media as to the circumstances surrounding their deaths.

We are shocked and think it’s irresponsible that police sources have reportedly advised the media of a theory which neither their family, their friends nor their colleagues believe to be true.”2

Watch the video below where even the CBC, Canada’s NATIONAL news service, explains that he went to battle with big pharma… a lot.

The police in Toronto are currently working on the theory that Mr. Sherman killed his wife and then took his own life. As in he killed her, hung her body and then hanged himself at the pool’s edge. (He doesn’t look weak in pictures but from what I understand picking up and hanging a dead body is no easy business.) Again, the couple’s children, family, friends, and colleagues all disagree with this theory.

“The real estate agent who had been helping to sell the pair’s North York home found the bodies Friday morning.

There was no sign of forced entry to the home. There was no note left behind to explain what had happened…

The Shermans had just put their house on Old Colony Road up for sale for $6.9-million.

Sherman’s company Apotex released a statement late Friday confirming the deaths: ‘We’ve been informed of the tragic news that Barry and Honey Sherman have unexpectedly passed away. All of us at Apotex are deeply shocked and saddened by this news and our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.'”3

The very idea of a murder-suicide makes no sense given that fact that they loved their jobs, life, children, and were apparently looking forward to vacation. On Monday, Mrs. Sherman e-mailed friends in Florida in order to book social dates for their upcoming trip: 

“Looking forward to getting together in Florida. I am coming south Monday, December 18 – Friday, January 12. Barry is coming south for Monday December 25 & going home with me Jan. 12. Please let me know your dates south asap so i can place in my calendar… Looking forward to hearing back asap. Xoxo Honey”4

On Saturday, Apotex posted a message on its website paying tribute to Mr. Sherman’s entrepreneurial and philanthropic efforts (Sherman’s net worth was recently estimated to be $4.77-billion):

“Dr. Sherman gave his life to the singular purpose of our organization – innovating for patient affordability. As employees, we are proud of his tremendous accomplishments, honoured to have known him, and vow to carry on with the Apotex purpose in his honour.”5

He and his wife donated widely to political and community causes, among them, hospitals, universities and the United Jewish Appeal. For her part, Honey was on the board of governors at York University, the Baycrest Foundation, and Mount Sinai Hospital as well as the former chair of the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto and former chair of the Holocaust Education Centre. And Mr. Sherman was a workhorse who devoted almost all of his time and energy to Apotex.

After their deaths were announced, their friends and colleagues came out of the woodwork with words of praise and condolances. Their lost is being felt and will continue to be felt.

    This doctor was NOT a natural doctor, so what happened? Why was he killed?

  • Hi John. He definitely was not natural. Although ironically, news reports that he was one of the first nutraceutical manufacturers decades ago. But, he was one of the biggest drug manufacturers in the world. But if you watch the short Canadian broadcasting Corporation video, you will see that they said he was constantly battling with big Pharma. Of course I wasn’t there, and maybe he really had the strength to hang and kill both his Wife and himself – but his children say that the family, relatives, friends, colleagues, also he did not murder his wife and thenkill himself as police suggest. I’m on my phone it’s very difficult to reply right now, and I will edit this later or fix it up, but he was a threat to pharmaceutical companies. He was doing the drugs at a fraction of the price. Not to mention the lawsuits. Will update the story a little later today

    Chock this up as two new victims of the CLINTON BODY COUNT—that is most commonly known as “Arkancide” and denotes the mysterious deaths of witnesses to the crimes of former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary—and whose latest victems are the Canadian pharmaceutical billionaire Barry Sherman and his wife Honey—both of whom were scheduled to be interviewed by OIG Inspector-General Horowitz investigators this week about the Clinton’s crimes in Haiti—and whose deaths came just days after another Horowitz witness, named Dr. Dean Lorich, was, likewise, mysteriously killed before he could testify about the Clinton’s crimes in Haiti—and all of whom now join former Haitian official Klaus Oberwein—who was another witness to the Clinton’s crimes in Haiti suicided this past July just prior to his testifying, too.

    How can giving money to universities and hospitals be charity, when these are the venues that sell the drugs and promote them through studies that are configured in the favor of the producer? Can anyone else see the irony here of the charity being a form of buying the space that upholds the drugs turning a profit? I mean, this is the fox in the hen house!

    He was one of the biggest drug manufacturers in the world, and he was constantly battling with big Pharma. So he was constantly battling with himself?

  • BadRadical

    These people, rest their souls, were not medical people but multibillionaire drug manufacturers.
