Toronto police release video of suspect in killings of Toronto billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman

Barry Sherman had been ranked as the 15th-richest person in Canada with a net worth of about $4.77 billion; Honey Sherman was a notable philanthropist.

 

Kerry Winter, the cousin of the Canadian billionaire who was murdered with his wife in their mansion in December, gave a wide-ranging interview to a television network this week, in which he spoke about acrimony between the two, admitted to fantasies about killing his cousin and failed a lie-detector test after claiming that the murdered man had asked him to kill his wife decades ago.

The interview, with the Canadian public broadcaster CBC, comes about two months after Barry Sherman, founder of the pharmaceutical company Apotex, and his wife, Honey Sherman, were found dead in their mansion on Dec. 15. Police found the two on their pool deck, hanging from belts tied to a railing in a “semi-seated position,” reports said.

The Shermans’ mysterious murder has drawn attention from around the globe. The police in Toronto say the couple were the targets of a double homicide. Barry Sherman had been ranked as the 15th-richest person in Canada with a net worth of about $4.77 billion; Honey Sherman was a notable philanthropist. The police have yet to disclose a suspect.

Winter told CBC’s program “The Fifth Estate” about acrimony between him and his siblings and Barry Sherman over the Apotex fortune, saying he was motivated to speak out to “hurt” his cousin’s legacy.

“I was betrayed. My cousin hurt me, and now I want to hurt him,” Winter said.

Winter and his siblings were part of a lawsuit that lasted more than decade and sought a piece of the Apotex fortune, CBC reported. A judge dismissed the case in September, calling the claim “fanciful,” and the cousins appealed.
