In December 2017, the Shermans were found strangled in the basement pool of their $6 million home. The gruesome scene was discovered by a real estate agent who was showing the house to prospective buyers. Sherman, 75, was the founder and CEO of Canadian drug manufacturer Apotex. His wife, Honey, 70, was well-known for her philanthropic efforts.
Q has suggested that their murder is linked to the Five Eyes international spying program, the Uranium One scandal (US uranium was passed through Canada), and the construction of safety houses. See drop 2217 for more info.
