Emergency crews were called to the mansion in the Bayview Avenue and Highway 401 area around 11:45 a.m. ET Friday for reports of a medical emergency, where Toronto police say a male and a female were pronounced dead.
Local media cited a police source as saying the Shermans' bodies were found hanging from a railing around a basement pool, the theory being that the Apotex chairman killed his wife Honey, hung her body and then hanged himself by the pool's edge. When crews arrived, they found the couple dead, under circumstances that police described as suspicious.
Autopsies conducted on Saturday and Sunday determined that the couple died from ligature neck compression. They have yet to confirm that the Shermans were the deceased, despite the family's statement, and Apotex confirming that its founder Barry Sherman and his wife had died. Later on Friday, police also issued a statement, in which it particularly pointed out that they are not looking for any suspect.

The Shermans made numerous multimillion-dollar donations to hospitals, schools and charities and had buildings named in their honor.
If the autopsies indicate that the deaths were not criminal in nature, police will likely not provide an update to the public on the case, he added.
Linda Frum, a longtime friend of the couple and Canadian senator, told The New YorkTimes: "There is absolutely zero debate in my mind, this was a double homicide".
"Honey Sherman was a volunteer extraordinaire", he said.
On Saturday, the home page of the Apotex website memorialized Barry Sherman and the legacy he built. This is very, very sad.
Espiricueta said she was moved to share the letter after asking Crystal why she thought she wanted food but needed a blanket. Espiricueta said she was saddened by the letter and chose to help fulfill at least one of her student's Christmas wishes.
Sherman acquired the company named Empire Laboratories - the predecessor of Apotex - from his uncle after the death of the latter. Police earlier said there were no signs of forced entry and there was no outstanding suspect they were going after.
