Convicted Serial Killer Karla Homolka Discovered Volunteering At Her Children's Elementary School

When you’re a parent, there’s a number of situations that can scare the absolute daylights out of you. If there’s ever a suggestion that your child may be in some sort of danger - or even at risk of it - there’s a good chance the alarm bells will start going off for you. There’s a pretty good chance that the parents of students at a private Christian school in Montreal are feeling that way right about now, as some shocking information has been revealed about one of the school’s volunteers.

As the Daily Mail shares, a convicted Canadian serial killer has been spotted volunteering at the school. Yes, seriously. Karla Homolka served 12 years in prison for her role in the death of three schoolgirls back in 1993. She’s now 47-years-old, and she has three children from her second marriage. Guess where those kids go to school?

You guessed it. Her children attend Greaves Adventist Academy, where Homolka has been spotted volunteering. Reports indicate that she recently helped supervise a field trip for kindergarteners, and she also was invited to another class to help children learn how to knit. She has brought a dog into the school for show and tell, and she’s obviously regularly on school grounds to drop off and pick up her own children.

Now that the cat's out of the bag, parents in the district are obviously concerned and freaked out.

“We don't want her here,” said one unidentified parent. “How would you feel knowing that your child is interacting with a person who is a serial killer? It's not right.”

Surprisingly, the school acknowledges that they are fully aware of her history.

“She is not a regular volunteer and can never be alone with any children, either in school or churches,” noted a spokesperson for Seventh-day Adventist Church. “It is protocol for all of our schools across Canada, and most of the world, to do background checks, not only on teachers, but volunteers as well as clergy. As I said, she is not a regular volunteer. Rarely would she have cause to go into the school, and when she is, she is never alone.”

As for her crimes of the past, Homolka was convicted of raping, torturing and killing two schoolgirls with the assistance of her then-husband Paul Bernardo. She was also found to have been involved in a similar crime committed against her own sister. Homolka claimed that Bernardo had abused her and forced her to do what she did, but video footage that was released during the trial showed that she seemed to be on board with what was going on.

She divorced Bernardo while in jail, and she would go on to marry her lawyer’s brother after her release in 2005. Homolka was able to plea her sentence down to 12 years, and it was a contentious decision as the crimes were a media sensation north of the border.

It’s unclear if the school intends to let her continue volunteering in the wake of this controversy.
