Toronto, Dec 21 (IBNS): Toronto lawyer Brian Greenspan will help Sherman family in a case which pertains to the suspicious death of Canadian billionaire Barry and his wife Honey Sherman, media reports said.

The relatives of Barryand Honey Serman sought assistance from Greenspan, report said.

Confirming the news of helping the family of deceased couple, the Toronto lawyer told Star: "I have been serving as a resource person for the Sherman family and Barry and Honey were people who I admired and respect."

He added: "The family did contact me to be a resource person for them and I’ll fill that role."

Police have confirmed that the duo died of neck compression.

Following the development, Toronto police have said that their murder unit will investigate the case.

A police statement read: "Post-mortem examinations were carried out yesterday and today. The cause of death for both deceased was ligature neck compression. Toronto Police Service Homicide has taken the lead in this suspicious death investigation."

Earlier, the Sherman family rejected police theory that the death was unnatural.

A family statement read: "Our parents shared an enthusiasm for life and commitment to their family and community totally inconsistent with the rumours regrettably circulated in the media as to the circumstances surrounding their deaths."

"We are shocked and think it's irresponsible that police sources have reportedly advised the media of a theory which neither their family, their friends nor their colleagues believe to be true," the statement added.

The couple were found dead by their estate agent in Toronto.

The founder of Apotex, the largest exporter of generic drugs in Canada and the world's seventh largest pharmaceutical company, Barry Sherman's wealth was estimated to be around $3.2 billion by Forbes.
