Barry Sherman, who founded generic drugmaker Apotex Inc., and Honey, were discovered hanging by belts from a railing surrounding their indoor pool — in a semi-seated position on the pool deck, the outlet said.
Canadian officials originally believed the deaths had been a murder-suicide before private investigators hired by the Sherman family concluded it had been a double murder.
