Apotex Chairman and Wife Found Dead

Dec 17, 2017


Barry Sherman, the chairman of generic drugmaker, Apotex, and his wife, Honey, were found dead in their Toronto mansion. Police are investigating the deaths as suspicious.

Sherman founded Apotex — now the largest Canadian-owned pharma company — in 1974, with two employees.

According to Toronto newspapers, the two bodies were found hanging from a railing on the edge of a basement swimming pool. The deaths are being investigated as a possible murder-suicide, according to unofficial police sources, however family members reportedly disagree with this theory.

Sherman stepped down as Apotex’s CEO in 2012, but stayed on as chairman.
