    I heard they were a couple of swingers …..

    Must be from all the remorse they had from fund raising for Trudoope.

    Why kill yourself in your old empty house and not in your new home?

      Very strange and why such a dramatic or statement exit. There are much easier ways than hanging?

        Also strange to see a For Sale sign on a $7 million property — but who knows? There’s always an impulse buy, isn’t there?

      I’ve heard they liked hanging around the pool.

      maybe it was only HER new home and he was not coming with her

    I find it very difficult that a billionaire and his wife died from a murder suicide. People of that type of wealth, political influence, status tend to get murdered out of greed (money) or control of over the business assets. In the case for Barry & Honey Sherman there was certainly a motive to have them killed for control over Apotex pharmaceuticals.

        I think it was Colonel Mustard in the library …

          It could be from big pharma and it could be from the investigations into cash-for-access that may have led to this.

          Anything is possible.

            One thing is for sure that people having immense wealth, and there being infighting amongst the family may have contributed to something happening. We won’t know for a long time to come.

          My bet is on a Revenue Canada hit squad. They’re vicious over.

        we do know from all the article on this story that he supported Turdeau and wynne, and that he has been manipulating the supply of generic drugs to keep the prices higher, and he also screwed his orphan cousins out of his uncles share of the company, so its no loss that this douche is dead

    It requires a fair bit of strength to hang someone.
