More than a month after billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman were found dead in their upscale Toronto home, police say the couple were victims of a double homicide.

The deaths of a billionaire Canadian couple found hanging side by side in their lavish Toronto mansion are being treated as "a targeted double homicide", local police announced Friday.

Gomes said investigators believe the couple was targeted and that they are speaking to a "significant list" of people.

Det. Sgt. Susan Gomes said investigators came to the conclusion after six weeks of investigation, but said there are no suspects. The CBC reports on the specifics of the investigation so far, per Gomes: Authorities have amassed 130 witness statements, 150 pieces of evidence, and 2,000 hours of surveillance video.

December 17, 2017: Police say autopsies have revealed the couple died from "ligature neck compression".

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed as much after the match, stating: "Players were affected last week but that's no excuse". But Spurs went into the break level after Harry Kane headed home a Ben Davies corner.

Sources close to the family probe used words like "professional", "contract killing" and "staged homicide" to describe the couple's death, the Star said.

The couple's 12,440-square-foot home on Old Colony Rd., had recently been placed on the market for nearly $7 million.

Police have released the home back to the family. "That sets off alarm bells for me", she said. Gomes declined to say whether anything was taken from the Sherman house.

"They hate us. They have private investigators on us all the time, trying to investigate".

Canadian Business magazine recently estimated his worth at 4.77 billion Canadian dollars ($3.65 billion), making him the 15th richest person in the country. "Perhaps I'm surprised that hasn't happened".

The shadowy "they" he spoke of were those profiting handsomely from the huge, global brand-name pharmaceutical industry.

Sherman was a fiercely competitive businessman, once musing that a rival might want to kill him.

Apotex spokesman Jordan Berman said Friday he didn't know why Desai was leaving, but said he resigned to pursue other opportunities.
