Canadian Jewish couple Barry and Honey Sherman were murdered in December in what hired private investigators called a professional, contract killing, The Toronto Star reported on Saturday.

According to a source close to the investigation, the conclusions drawn by a team of experts hired by the Sherman family cast doubt on the prior assumption that the couple's death in December had been a murder-suicide. indicating instead a double-homicide.

A top forensic pathologist who carried out a second autopsy uncovered the existence of rope marks on the victims' wrists, suggesting that they had at some point been tied up, the report said. No ropes or similar materials that could have caused the marks were found near the bodies, further increasing suspicion.

The sources that provided the information for the report were not identified as they were not authorized to discuss the case.

Meanwhile, Toronto police have not released any further comments on the incident beyond their prior classification of the death as "suspicious."

The week after the couple was found dead in their Toronto home, the Sherman family criticized the police for allegedly circulating rumors that the couple's death was a murder-suicide.
