An estate agent discovered the bodies of pharmaceutical entrepreneur Barry Sherman and his wife Honey.

Investigators are still attempting to "determine if there is foul play involved or not", Detective Brandon Price told reporters, "and at this point we can not say 100% with certainty if there is or there is not".

Emergency crews were called to the home at about 11:45 a.m. on Friday, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported, with police saying only that a man and woman were pronounced dead on the scene.

"The circumstances of their death appear suspicious and we are treating it that way", said Hopkinson, BBC reported. The company undercut name-brand drugs by producing cheaper generic versions.

'Our condolences to their family & friends, and to everyone touched by their vision & spirit, ' Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote on Twitter.

Toronto Mayor John Tory said in statement that he was "shocked and heartbroken" to learn of the deaths.

Forbes has estimated Sherman's fortune at $3.2 billion.

Police said in an update Friday evening they aren't looking for an outstanding suspect and that there was no signs of forced entry into the home.

"Wonderful human beings, incredible philanthropists, great leaders in health care".

"Patients around the world live healthier and more fulfilled lives thanks to his life's work, and his significant impact on healthcare and healthcare sustainability will have an enduring impact for many years to come", the statement read.

"Honey Sherman was a volunteer extraordinaire". The couple had made numerous multimillion dollar donations to hospitals, schools, and charities.

The Shermans recently listed their home for sale for almost 7 million Canadian dollars, about $5.4 million. The couple were found in their home, which was up for sale.
