Tragic news out of Canada.
Apotex founder Barry Sherman and his wife Honey were found dead in home they share in Toronto, Canada.
The couple was first identified by Ontario health minister Eric Hoskins.
The bodies were found hanging from a railing near the basement pool.
Police believe that Sherman killed his wife, hung up her body, and then killed himself by hanging.
Const. David Hopkinson gave a news conference outside the home, saying, “The circumstances of their death appear suspicious and we are treating it that way.”
Sherman’s company, Apotex, confirmed the couple’s death in a statement: “It is with profound sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our founder, Dr. Bernard C. Sherman, Chairman of the Board of the Apotex Group of Companies, at the age of 75, and his wife Honey Sherman.”
The statement also noted the success the company has had while still keeping close to home: “Despite the increasingly global scope of Apotex, Dr. Sherman remained committed to Apotex’s Canadian roots with more than 6000 employees and 21 facilities across the country.”
