'Numerous' persons of interest are identified in the murders of billionaire ...

There are 'numerous' persons of interest in the murders of Barry and Honey Sherman, the affluent couple who was found dead inside their mansion in 2017.

Det. Sgt. Brandon Price issued a 'clarification' statement on Friday after previous reports suggested the Toronto police had zeroed in on a single person of interest.

'Numerous ‘persons of interest’ have been, and continue to be, investigated throughout the course of this three-year investigation,' Price said, per the Toronto Star. 

'The goal of any investigation is to identify persons who may have been involved in an offence or to exclude them as suspects.'

Barry, 75, and Honey, 70, were found dead inside their Toronto mansion, hanging by belts from a railing surrounding an indoor swimming pool. 

The bodies reportedly remained undiscovered for 36 hours until a realtor stumbled across the couple while touring clients through the residence.

Toronto authorities initially labeled the deaths a murder-suicide for six week before shifting the investigation towards a 'targeted' double-murder.

The Sherman's four children criticized police handling of the deaths, prompting them to hire a private investigator and a pathologist of their own to look into the case.

The detective completed the work last year but gave no details to the public. The pathologiest conducted additional autopsies.

The official cause of death was 'ligature neck compression,' suggesting strangulation by ties or binding.
