Autopsies are being performed on Saturday on two bodies found dead in a North York home that belonged to billionaire Barry Sherman and his wife Honey, police say.
The police had been called to the property just before noon, apparently in response to a medical complaint.
Apotex, which called news of the Shermans' deaths "tragic", was recently implicated in a price-fixing scheme with 17 other drug companies and their subsidiaries. He was ranked recently by Forbes as Canada's 12th-richest person with a net worth of about $3 billion. He stepped down as chief executive in 2012 but remained as executive chairman. Investigators are working on the theory that Mr. Sherman killed his wife, hung her body and then hanged himself at the pool's edge, the source said.
Mr. Sherman, 75, founded the privately held Apotex in 1974, growing it by introducing large numbers of low-priced generic drugs that took market share from brand pharmaceuticals.
Police have issued few details about the circumstances of the deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman.
