Canadian billionaire offers $35 million for information to catch murderous parents five years later


The son of slain billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman has increased the reward for information that can help authorities find and arrest his parents’ killer to $35 million Canadian dollars.

“The closure will not be possible until those responsible for this wrongdoing they are brought to justice,” Jonathon Sherman told CBC Toronto when announcing the bounty increase.

“This immeasurable pain is felt every day as I realize that my two children will never have the privilege of knowing my parents, who made life possible for me and my husband,” she continued. “My parents deserved to enjoy the fruits of their labor and spend their last years like any grandparent, with their family.”

“I still miss my parents more than I can describe, and I’m always haunted by what happened to them.”

The most recent lead emerged last year when investigators asked for help identifying a “person walking” on the sidewalk they considered “highly suspicious.”
