The son of a billionaire and his wife, who were found murdered five years ago, has offered $25 million for information about their deaths.
Jonathon Sherman, told CBC Toronto that
closure will not be possible until those responsible for this evil act are brought to justice.”
Jonathon has increased the reward with $10 million more of his own money to help solve the case surrounding Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey, who were found on Dec. 13, 2017. Their bodies were strangled in the basement pool of their home with belts looped around their necks the pool’s tied to the pool’s railing.
My parents deserved to enjoy the fruits of their labour, and spend their twilight years as any grandparent should, with their family.
I continue to miss my parents more than I can describe, and I am forever haunted by what happened to them.”
Sherman, one of the richest men in the world, was the founder and chairman of the board of pharma giant Apotex, with an estimated net worth of $3.2 billion, according to Forbes. He had been involved in dozens of heated lawsuits, some against his own relatives, whom he had invested in their businesses and loaned tens of millions of dollars to.
According to court documents, Jonathon Sherman told police that his parents
…were complicated people and that there are people out there who would have a grudge against them and would have a reason to hurt them.”
At the time of their deaths, Apotex had lost a $500 million lawsuit and was facing financial pressures and was laying off staff.
Toronto Police released surveillance footage of someone walking outside the couple’s home the day they were killed, considered a suspect.
Police say the investigation is ongoing. Amateur detectives are no doubt on the case as well with that kind of reward money.
“Closure will not be possible until those responsible for this evil act are brought to justice,” said Jonathon Sherman, the couple’s son. “I have been overwhelmed with pain, loss, and sorrow and these feelings only continuously compound.”https://t.co/8lrLpwyzR0— Rob Rand Wants Justice for the Menendez Brothers (@MenendezRand) December 13, 2022
