Canadian big pharma businessman found strangled with his wife in 2017.

Barry Sherman and his wife Honey Sherman were found strangled on December 15, 2017, at their home at 50 Old Colony Road in North York, Toronto. The possibility that this was a "contract hit by big pharma patentees" has been raised.[1]


The family home is no longer there.

The couple's four children issued a statement urging the police to conduct a thorough criminal investigation and chastised the police for leaking a murder-suicide theory.[2] They also contacted Toronto lawyer Brian Greenspan to retain a private investigator to look into the deaths.[3] A retired Toronto Police detective, Tom Klett, who had worked in the homicide, drug, and intelligence bureaus, was hired to do so.[4] A private autopsy was completed on behalf of the family by a pathologist retained for this purpose.[5]

The house was demolished in 2019.[6]
