The son of murdered billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman has increased his reward to C$35 million for information that can help authorities find and arrest his parents’ killer.
“Shutdown will not be possible until those responsible for this evil act 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 meeting my parents who made their lives possible for my husband and I,” she continued. “My parents deserved to enjoy the fruits of their labor and to spend their final years as any grandparent should, with their family.”
“I still miss my parents more than I can describe, and I’m always haunted by what happened to them.”

Investigators initially believed the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide, but later determined they were the victims of a “targeted” double homicide, according to The Guardian. The most recent lead surfaced last year when detectives asked for help identifying a “person walking” on the sidewalk they deemed “highly suspicious.”
Despite this apparent breakthrough, police have been unable to identify the man, but remain hopeful he is connected to the murders. The person is between five feet six inches and five feet nine inches tall, but other traits remain unknown.
