The family of a murdered Canadian billionaire and his wife are offering a C$10m ($7.6m; £6m) award for any information which leads to an arrest the killer. Barry Sherman who is 75 years old, and Honey Sherman who is 70 years old, were found strangled in their Toronto home on 15 December.
After months of silence from the family and police, the lawyer of the family announced the reward on Friday. The family’s counsel Brian Greenspan said that they are trying to light the fire to get people to come forward and give information about killer. Mr Brian Greenspan said the information from people or any call will be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and leads will be get confirmed before being passed on to Toronto police.
The criminal lawyer Mr Greenspan also took the opportunity to criticize the Toronto police. Mr Greenspan said private investigators hired by the 4 adult children of Barry and Honey Sherman, and they found Toronto police did not follow best practices in their investigation. In the beginning to Canadian media, unidentified police sources were quoted suggesting that the death of couple could be a murder-suicide, a theory the family straight away rejected.
But later police publicly confirmed they were investigating a targeted double murder. Mr Greenspan alleged that in the initial hours, police failed to properly examine as it should be the crime scene and recognize the suspicious and staged manner in which [the couple’s] bodies were situated.
He also claimed that police failed to vacuum for evidence the immediate area where Mr and Mrs Sherman were found, to thoroughly examine points of entry to the home, and to collect fingerprints from all the people who had been in the home to help eliminate suspects.
