Karla Homolka will no longer volunteer at Montreal elementary school

Canadian Serial Killer Karla Homolka Volunteers at Elementary School Like It's NBD

Karla Homolka served a dozen years in prison in the rape and murder of teens Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy in Ontario, and authorities say she and her husband also drugged, raped and murdered Karla's 15-year-old sister Tammy.

"The school board was fully aware of who she is", the spokesman said.

Bernardo was declared a risky offender and sentenced to life in prison while Homolka struck a deal with prosecutors in 1993 to serve 12 years in prison for manslaughter. Homolka spent twelve years in prison and was released in 2005. Homolka is now reportedly volunteering at the private Christian school where her children go to school in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighborhood of Montreal.

A Canadian serial killer who targeted schoolgirls with her husband was spotted earlier this year doing volunteer work - for an elementary school.

A convicted serial killer and rapist has been discovered working at a school with children as young as four.

". the idea that she is allowed to be around children is just not logical."

In a statement on Tuesday, they said in part, "The Quebec Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the administration of Greaves Adventist Academy are committed to providing quality education and enriching learning experiences to its students". "There is no reason for anyone to be concerned about the way we do things right now for the benefit of the students in our community".

A lawyer for the French and Mahaffy families told told The Canadian Press that the news of Homolka's volunteer work is a "kick in the gut" to the victims' families. Parents told the Montreal Gazette on Wednesday that Homolka has been seen in the schoolyard with her dog, and allowed the children to pet the dog.

"I know (Homolka) thinks she's paid her debt to society, but she hasn't paid anything".

But others have come to Homolka's defense, most notably Tom Mulcair, the leader of the far-left New Democratic Party in the House of Commons.

"If you're ensuring the safety of the kids, beyond our revulsion at the horror of the crime, is there any room for atonement and forgiveness?" he asked. He feels this story shows the federal government needs to look at changing the release system when it comes to criminals like Homolka. "If she calls you, don't go near her and call me, ' because I don't trust the school".

Nancy Grace and Alan Duke discuss the parental outrage that has followed the revelation that she is now participating in show-and-tell and chaperoning field trips at her kid's school.
