A billionaire couple from Toronto is dead following suspicious circumstances in their home.
The Toronto Sun reported that first responders found the married couple “hanging from a railing that surrounds a lap pool inside the house.”
A police source reportedly told the The Globe and Mail, based in Toronto, that “investigators are working on the theory that Mr. Sherman killed his wife, hung her body and then hanged himself at the pool’s edge.
A real estate agent who was assisting in the sale of the couple’s North York home found the bodies on Friday morning.
While police haven’t confirmed many details surrounding the case at this time, they did tell The Globe that their homicide team was involved in the investigation.
“Homicide is working with 33 Division on this until we get the post mortem. When we get the post mortem result, that should give us a good indication of where the investigation goes from there,” Police spokesman Mark Pugash told the news site.
It was reported that there were no notes left behind explaining the circumstances behind the deaths, and there were also no signs of forced entry.
Barry was the founder of Apotex Global.
