Police in Canada say they believe a billionaire couple found dead in their home in Toronto last month were murdered, describing it as a "targeted" killing.

The bodies of Barry, 75 and Honey Serman, 70, were discovered at their mansion in the city hanging by belts from a railing next to a swimming pool.

In a case which has shocked the country, investigators say no one has so far been charged for the killing, though they have an "extensive list" of people they are planning to speak to.

Barry Sherman was the founder of pharmaceutical giant Apotex. He and his wife were well-known for their philanthropy.
