A notorious female serial killer jailed over the rape and murder of her teenage sister and two schoolgirls is reportedly volunteering at a primary school.
Canadian Karla Homolka was sentenced to 12 years in 1993 for carrying out the murders of teenagers Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy as well as her sister Tammy with her then husband Paul Bernardo, who was jailed for life.
The couple drugged and tortured their victims while filming the abuse in crimes which horrified the nation.
Homolka was released from prison in 2005 and has since married Thierry Bordelais, the brother of her lawyer during her murder trial.
Homolka is now reportedly volunteering at Greaves Adventist Academy, a private Christian school in Montreal attended by her children, which has sparked outrage among parents, City News reported.
The media outlet reported Homolka is regularly seen at the school and in March helped to supervise children on a school trip to the Montreal Science Centre.
She was also reportedly invited into the classroom to show children how to knit on another occasion.
Under Quebec law, school volunteers are supposed to be subjected to criminal background checks before they can interact with pupils.
One woman, who gave her name as Lily, said concerns had been raised with the principal but no action had been taken.
She told City News: “We don’t want her here.
“How would you feel knowing that your child is interacting with a person who is a serial killer? It’s not right.”
Andy Maraj, whose daughter attends the school, told the Montreal Gazette he was made aware of Homolka after a man passed out leaflets to parents in March to inform them.
He said: “When I first read the (leaflet), I thought it was a hoax – but then I saw her and I saw her walking around with her dog for the children to play with.
“I told my daughter: ‘This lady, I don’t want you to go near her please. If she calls you, don’t go near her and call me,’ because I don’t trust the school.”
While mum Stéphanie Deligne added: “It’s really unacceptable.”
Footage filmed outside the school showed the moment Homolka was confronted by a reporter who asked her if she was volunteering.
She takes her phone out and starts the filming the journalist, asking him “Who are you?”
She then gets inside a black-coloured SUV but not before telling the reporter “you’ll be hearing from my lawyer when he contacts you.”
In a statement provided to City News, the Seventh-day Adventist church-run school said it was working with parents to address their concerns.
Spokesman Stan Jensen said: “The school board was fully aware of who she is- she is not a regular volunteer, and can never be alone with any children, either in school or churches.”
Homolka struck a plea deal with prosecutors to have her sentenced fixed at 12 years after she claimed she was manipulated by Bernardo and forced into the murders.
