Karla Homolka now a mother of three in the Caribbean, ebook 'Finding Karla' says


TORONTO - She horrified the country with her role in the torture and killing of Ontario school girls two decades ago, now she has three children of her own.

Years after her case gripped the country, Karla Homolka has been found living in the Caribbean under a different name with a husband and three young children.

The details of her life after 12 years in prison are detailed in a 46-page ebook by journalist Paula Todd, titled "Finding Karla."

"No matter how much we might want to forget Karla Homolka, she never really goes away, she hovers in any courtroom, if you think about it, where somebody is on trial for any kind of child abuse," Todd told The Canadian Press in an interview.

"We needed these answers."

In the early 1990s, Homolka and her then-husband, Paul Bernardo, were convicted of crimes related to the rape and murder of two schoolgirls, Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy.

While Bernardo went on to be sentenced to life in prison, Homolka struck a deal with prosecutors in 1993 to serve 12 years in prison for manslaughter.

She had told investigators earlier that Bernardo abused her and made her a reluctant accomplice to the killings. Videotapes later surfaced, however, showing Homolka had a far more active role in the murders than she had claimed.

"The thing about Karla Homolka, and the reason she persists in Canadians' minds is that she fooled everybody," said Todd. "While I was in discussions with her, I was in conflict. Because on the one hand she appeared to be a really good mother...but I don't think anybody is ever going to believe Homolka."

Little has been known about Homolka's life since she was released from prison in 2005.

For Todd, that lack of information drove her to figure out what had become of the notorious killer ever since she walked free.

Online research for a book about the life of released criminals led her to blog reports of Homolka teaching children in the Caribbean - reports Todd later found were false, but they were a starting point for a deeper search.

After mining the Internet for any scrap of information she could find, Todd decided to follow an obscure lead that led her to the island of Guadeloupe in May.

"The reason I went is because I think it was in the public interest for people to know what had happened to what is widely considered a huge police bungle," she said.

Once there, Todd spent days roving the island until she tracked her down.

When she appeared on Homolka's doorstep unannounced, a day after the convicted killer's forty-second birthday, Todd was allowed inside and spent a tense hour in the apartment.

"The tension started from the moment I realized I had actually found her, and it continued like a tight, tight string, all the way through until I left about an hour later," Todd said of the experience.

"Canadians are worried that she's gone on to repeat the horror. I can't say for sure what she's doing, but I can tell Canadians that she seems to have made a life somewhere else, she has a family and she's still living in confinement."

The confinement refers to what appears to be the closed life Homolka now lives.

"She said to me, 'What makes you think I feel safe?'...She said to me nobody cares about me, people only care about me in a negative way," Todd recalled.

"She knows that Canadians and the world continue to despise her for what she did."

While Homolka didn't appear to display any remorse, or indicate that she was living in any sort of emotional turmoil, Todd said it was made clear that the woman now living under the name Leanne Bordelais didn't want to talk about the past.

"Even though she doesn't want to talk about her life - she hates journalists and she told me that... I thought it was interesting that I was allowed to observe."

Those observations included a tidy, clean home, a seemingly harmonious relationship with her husband and a healthy relationship with her three children, one of whom Homolka even breastfed while Todd was in the room.

"She presented as a very good mother, but who knows. I have no reason to believe that those kids are not well cared for."

It is in the hopes of keeping those children happy that Todd said she would not reveal Homolka's exact address, nor publish the names of her children.

"Do I have warm feelings towards her? Absolutely not," Todd emphasized. "I was completely neutral. There's so much opinion about this, it's so caustic and it's so painful that I didn't want to get in the way of reporting to Canadians."

Todd's ebook is published by the Canadian Writers Group and is available on Kindle Singles, Kobo, iBooks and Nook for $2.99.

Her experience tracking down and meeting with Homolka will later be included as part of her upcoming book, "Inside Out."

"This was about the fact that Karla Homolka disappeared but she never went away," Todd said of her work. "I wanted to get some answers... so Canadians can make up their own minds."

It is allege that Magnota ( the crazy you decapitated the Chinese dude) dated after she came out of prison.

She was never pardoned so, I want to believe that the immigration folks in Guadeloupe didn't know about her past.

She may have a family who she treats well and all the rest now, but I will never believe she is anything less than a sociopath.

That woman turned a whole nation inside out with what she got a way with.

Doctor Guy Turcotte, who killed his son and daughter, wants to have more children | News | National Post
MONTREAL — A doctor who confessed to stabbing his two young children to death in 2009, but was found by a jury to be not criminally responsible for his acts because of his mental state, wants to have more children.

A psychiatrist testifying Friday, before Dr. Guy Turcotte’s mental health review board — convened to determine whether he poses a risk to the public if released from Montreal’s Pinel Institute — says neither Turcotte nor his doctors can make sense of what happened when he stabbed his two young children to death in February 2009, shortly after his marriage fell apart.

The long-awaited hearing was told Turcotte also wants to get back to work as a cardiologist, and can see himself falling in love again, but will probably move to another province.

Everything is now as it was before he killed his children, said Dr. Pierre Rochette — no one can predict what will happen.

Rochette is recommending Turcotte stay at Pinel for the next year.

Turcotte is someone who falls in love easily, and he has received letters from female admirers. Rochette said he worried another dangerous situation could arise.

Turcotte was found by a jury to be not criminally responsible for his acts because of his mental state.

The trial, which featured 10 weeks of heart-wrenching testimony at the St. Jerome, Que., courthouse, ended July 5 when a jury of 11 people came to the unanimous decision not to convict Turcotte, but rather send him to the Pinel Institute psychiatric treatment.

Normally a mental-health review panel of three professionals is given the mandate to determine the degree of danger that an inmate represents for society and whether he or she can be released from the psychiatric hospital.

Given the complexity of Turcotte’s case, the panel was expanded to include five people: two lawyers, Medard Saucier and Lucien Leblanc; two psychiatrists, Georges Painchaud and Chantal Caron; and a social worker, Joseph Anglade.

.
The panel can release Turcotte with conditions, release him without conditions or order that he stay at Pinel indefinitely.

If either of the last two options is chosen, it will be reviewed annually by the board.

Lawyer Jean-Claude Hebert, spokesman for the Administrative Tribunal of Quebec on the case, said the panel “will take the whole file into consideration — the police investigation, the elements of proof produced at the trial, the opinions of all the experts, all the other proof from the trial.”

Isabelle Gaston, Turcotte’s ex-wife and the mother of the slain children, could also present a victim-impact statement.

The panel could take weeks, if not months, to reach a decision on Turcotte’s ability to rejoin society.

In the meantime, the Crown has sought leave to appeal the verdict in Turcotte’s trial, because it says Justice Marc David erred in his instructions to the jury and may have unduly influenced jury members to find Turcotte not guilty by reason of mental disorder.

MONTREAL — Guy Turcotte, the Quebec cardiologist who was found not criminally responsible in 2011 for the grisly stabbing deaths of his two children, is too dangerous to be released at this time and must remain incarcerated at a psychiatric hospital, a panel evaluating his mental state said Tuesday.


He will be allowed outings from the hospital, for up to eight hours a day, however.



For the first three months, those outings must be supervised by a family member or personnel from the Montreal-area Pinel Institute.


After three months, he will be allowed to leave the institute during the day, unsupervised, returning only at night.



The risks he poses to the public are to be re-evaluated after six months.


Almost a year ago, a jury found Turcotte was not criminally responsible of killing his two children, Olivier, 5, and Anne Sophie, 3.


Turcotte stabbed the children multiple times in their beds as they slept after he drank windshield washer fluid in a failed attempt at suicide.


He was discovered hiding under his bed the next morning when police forced their way into his rented home in Prevost, about 70 kilometres northwest of Montreal, after his worried mother alerted authorities.


The slayings occurred in the midst of a messy split between Turcotte and his wife, Isabelle Gaston. She had begun a relationship with the couple's personal trainer; Turcotte had told her if it was war she wanted, war she would get.


Gaston was away on a ski weekend with some girlfriends when the children were killed.


During a long, emotionally draining trial, Turcotte took the stand and described himself as a psychological wreck at the time of the breakup. His lawyer successfully convinced a jury that Turcotte had simply snapped when the otherwise loving father plunged the knife over and over into his slumbering children.


In accordance with a verdict of not criminally responsible, Turcotte was incarcerated in the Philippe Pinel Institute until his psychological state could be evaluated. People found not criminally responsible can be held indefinitely - but they can also be released if they are judged to no longer be a danger to the public.


Four-and-a-half-days of hearings were held over the course of almost a year to examine Turcotte's current mental condition.


There were three possible outcomes: keeping him at Pinel, releasing him with conditions, or releasing him with no conditions.


A panel of five legal and psychiatric experts, instead of the usual three, were told by Turcotte that he would like to enter a romantic relationship again and perhaps have more children. Sympathetic women have written to him inside Pinel.


The panel also heard from Gaston that she fears for her safety if Turcotte is released. As well, protesters opposed to his release demonstrated at Pinel.


Psychiatric witnesses debated whether the fact Turcotte snapped without warning is a sign he poses an ongoing danger or a sign he will be fine, with proper support.

Many think that Magnota will claim temporary insanity like Turcotte did. He already pleaded not guilty.

Just read up on the crimes of these 2 sick fucks. Once again, I'll for taking ppl like this out back and pulling a trigger.
Yeah the article doesnt cover the depths of depravity they committed. Especially Karla. To me, the doctor has nothing on that chick.
She sexually molested her own sister, let her husband rape her and then kill her as well....only to go break bread with her parents later on like her baby sister wasnt laying dead in their basement.

Her husband videoed the assaults and murders of those 2 young girls. When u see the videos (which are now banned and removed from the public after the parent's of the 2 girls fought to keep it private and i dont blame them), there isnt a soul who can tell me her husband coerced her into anything. She was enjoying it all too much.

Sick bytch who doesnt deserve to walk around let alone breed. But we cant do a thing about it.

Michael Rafferty found guilty of Tori Stafford murder - Canada - CBC News

Michael Rafferty has been found guilty of first-degree murder, sexual assault causing bodily harm and kidnapping in the death of Victoria (Tori) Stafford, the eight-year-old girl who disappeared outside her Woodstock, Ont., school three years ago.

Tori's family cried as the three-man, nine-woman jury delivered their verdict Friday night at a London, Ont., courthouse.

Rafferty, 31, closed his eyes but displayed little emotion as jurors delivered a verdict that Superior Court Judge Thomas Heeney said was "just and amply supported by the evidence."

Rafferty has been remanded to custody until a May 15 sentencing hearing. Tori's family members will have an opportunity to present victim impact statements at the hearing.

A conviction for first-degree murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison with no chance of applying for parole for 25 years.

The jury heard from 62 witnesses and saw almost 200 exhibits since Rafferty's trial began on March 5.

Deliberations began Thursday evening, and the jury returned to the courtroom several times Friday to receive further instruction from the judge, as they posed two questions about sexual assault.

"You have represented the people of Canada in a most important civic duty," Justice Heeney said, after thanking the jurors for their service.

Tori disappeared outside her elementary school in Woodstock, Ont., on April 8, 2009. Her body was found more than three months later.

'Justice' for Tori, father says

Immediately after the verdict was read, Tori's family "erupted into tears and cheers," CBC reporter Ioanna Roumeliotis said from the courthouse.

Tori's mother, Tara McDonald, left the courthouse without speaking to the media.

The girl's father, Rodney Stafford, said he was happy and excited, but at the same time, he said there was a sense of loss because his daughter was not coming home.

"But we got it, we got the justice," he said.

Stafford said he thought the jurors would be "very amazed" with their decision once they learned of the information they didn't hear in open court.

"It makes me feel like I can breathe again," said Tori's grandmother, Doreen Graichen.

Crown lawyer Kevin Gowdey said it was a day of mixed emotion after a "long and difficult" trial.

"The trial is finally over, so that's a good thing, but the verdict means that the jury has found that Michael Rafferty did kidnap, sexually assault and murder Victoria Stafford, and our thoughts are with Victoria's family," Gowdey said.

Defence lawyer Dirk Derstine told reporters after the guilty verdict he didn't think anybody in the courtroom knew what the verdict would be.

"I think the jury thought long and hard about various different aspects about this," Derstine said. "If they had just believed some aspects of the testimony right off the bat, they would have convicted within minutes."

When asked whether Rafferty would appeal, Derstine said "that's Mr. Rafferty's decision, and that will be brought to him in due course."

Rafferty pleaded not guilty

Rafferty had pleaded not guilty to all three charges.

Tori disappeared shortly after leaving Oliver Stephens Public School in Woodstock. Her partially clothed remains were found more than three months later in a field outside Mount Forest, 100 kilometres north of her home.


P.O.V.

Michael Rafferty now faces a mandatory life sentence. Do you agree with the verdict?

Tell us what you think.

Much of Rafferty's trial was taken up by the Crown's case, which included 61 witnesses over the course of eight weeks. The defence, on the other hand, spent just one day introducing evidence.

The prosecution's case centred on Terri-Lynne McClintic, who provided chilling testimony over the course of two weeks in March about the last moments of Tori's life. McClintic pleaded guilty two years ago to first-degree murder in Tori's death.

The 21-year-old told jurors she lured Tori to Rafferty's car after he asked her to abduct a little girl. The pair then drove the Grade 3 student first to Guelph, where McClintic bought a hammer and garbage bags, and then to Mount Forest.

McClintic testified she watched Rafferty repeatedly rape Tori before she became overcome with rage, and beat the girl to death with a hammer.

Defence lawyer Derstine attacked McClintic's credibility during cross-examination, noting she had a history of violent incidents. McClintic stabbed one man, left her adoptive mother partially blind following an assault and put a small dog in a microwave when she was a child.

She also dramatically changed her story just days before the start of pretrial motions in January by saying she, and not Rafferty, killed Tori. Since agreeing to help police in May 2009, McClintic had made a number of statements alleging Rafferty delivered the fatal blows.

Derstine again sought to cast McClintic's testimony as unreliable during closing arguments, calling her a "prolific and accomplished liar." He suggested McClintic was the "engine" behind the abduction and Rafferty was simply a horrified spectator.

Prosecutors tried to strengthen McClintic's version of the events of April 8, 2009, by introducing a combination of DNA evidence, surveillance video and phone records linking Rafferty to the abduction and death.

A blood stain found in Rafferty's vehicle was almost certainly a match to Tori, a forensic biologist testified.

Cellphone experts said Rafferty's BlackBerry was used in Woodstock, Guelph and near Mount Forest on April 8, 2009. The records appeared to match the timeline of events presented by McClintic.

The jury also heard that Tori's remains were too decomposed to determine whether she had been sexually assaulted.

The Crown called as witnesses more than a dozen women Rafferty dated during the spring of 2009, many at the same time, and several he met in the days following Tori's disappearance. One woman, Charity Spitzig, said Rafferty asked her to work as a prostitute and she gave him almost $17,000 over a six-month period.

That testimony prompted Justice Heeney to warn the jury that Rafferty's character was not on trial.

Jurors were unaware that Rafferty had searched for child pornography in the months before Tori's disappearance, including queries related to the violent sexual assault of underage children.

That information was deemed inadmissible after police failed to get proper authorization to search the contents of his laptop and BlackBerry, although the Crown tried unsuccessfully to reintroduce the evidence in April.

lol!

yeah Paul Benardo her husband is still in jail . I doubt they will ever release him because the public backlash would be insane. The police didnt find the video tapes before making a deal with his wife Karla, which allowed her to make a deal of 12 yrs and sell out her husband for a life sentence.
