The property where the bodies of Toronto billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman were found three years ago has been sold to an unidentified buyer for $4.25 million.

The couple was found by a realtor who was touring prospective homebuyers. 

The 12,000-square-foot mansion, which has since been torn down by the Sherman family, was being sold for $6.9 million at the time of the Shermans' murders.

According to The Star, the razed property at 50 Old Colony Road was bought in August by a woman who appears to live nearby, though no other information has been released. 

The Shermans were in the midst of building a new home for themselves in Forest Hill shortly before their death. That house has also been sold off by the Sherman family for $7.4 million.
