Founder of Generic Drug Maker Murdered

Barry Sherman, 75, the founder and chairman of the generic drug maker Apotex, and his wife, 70, were found strangled last month. I saw the obituary in the Wall St. Journal.  It included this”

He also feared retaliation from rivals. “The branded drug companies hate us,” he said in an interview excerpted in a 2001 book by Jeffrey Robinson. “They have private investigators on us all the time. The thought once came to my mind, why didn’t they just hire someone to knock me off?”

Dr. Sherman, 75 years old, and his wife, Honey, 70, were found dead in mysterious circumstances at their Toronto mansion Dec. 15. The police have said they died of “ligature neck compression,” a type of strangulation. The deaths remain under investigation.

Could Big Pharm have knocked him off?  It is kind of weird.  The tragedy was first publicized as a murder-suicide but now the police are calling it a homicide.  Therefore it was made to look like a murder-suicide, which means it was done by professionals.  It was a hit.  Hmmmm. I don’t want to point fingers and I am not a conspiracy, buff but I don’t trust anyone.   Those with power don’t like the little guys pushing back.
