Twisted serial killer Karla Homolka: Now living a totally normal life

Karla Homolka (also sometimes known as Karla Leanne Teale) was born in 1970 in Canada. She was the eldest of three daughters and the family lived in Ontario. When she grew up Homolka began working in animal clinics, though at her second job she began to steal drugs from her workplace.

In 1987 Homolka met Paul Bernardo, at the time of their meeting she was seventeen and he was twenty-three – Bernardo proposed to her on Christmas eve, December 24th, of that same year.

The Homolka family liked Bernardo and he spent a lot of time with them. However, he wasn’t exactly a saint. He became obsessed with Karla Homolka’s sister, Tammy. Bernardo would peep into Tammy’s bedroom window and even enter her room while she slept in order to masturbate. Karla Homolka was perfectly aware of this and even broke her sister’s blinds in order to give Bernardo better access to her sister.

The crimes

One night Karla Homolka laced spaghetti sauce with crushed Valium (stolen from the clinic she worked at) and gave it to her sister. When Tammy fell unconscious Bernard raped her and Karla Homolka watched.

In December of 1990 the engaged couple were partying with Tammy, but Karla slipped Halothane into her sister’s cocktail because she wanted to gift her sister’s virginity to Bernardo since he was disappointed he wasn’t her first sexual partner. When Tammy lost consciousness they unclothed her, and videotaped their acts. Tammy began to vomit while still unconscious.

The engaged couple clothed her and hid the evidence of their misdeeds before calling 911. Tammy later died without ever waking back up, and the death was declared accidental due to the overconsumption of alcohol – despite suspicious evidence implying otherwise.

In 1991 Bernardo kidnapped a fourteen-year-old girl, named Leslie Mahaffy, who had accidentally been locked outside of her house. He blindfolded the girl and drove her to Port Dalhousie and told Homolka he had found them a playmate. The recordings of their crimes against the woman include Bernardo implying he may let the girl if she behaves well. However, when her blindfold begins to slip the pair worried she could identify them and they killed her.

In 1992 the couple were driving around hunting for their next victim, they chose a fifteen-year-old named Kristen French. Homolka pretended to need directions and then Bernardo snuck up behind her before forcing her into the vehicle. French was usually very timely in arriving home from school so when she was late her parents immediately became alarmed.

Over the weekend the couple abused French physically and sexually while recording it all before eventually killing the teen.

Karla Homolka now

After twelve years in prison during July of 2005 Homolka was released. Because she was still considered dangerous nine stipulations accompanied her release, including having to keep police apprised of her residence, any name change, any plans to be away from her home for over forty-eight hours, a prohibition from being around anyone under the age of sixteen, and a handful of others.

In 2006 Homolka tried to have her name changed for anonymity purposes, however her request was denied. In 2007 she gave birth to a baby boy, but social services did not intend to automatically scrutinize her because of her past. For a while she worked and volunteered at the school where her two children attended.

However, as of 2020 Holmoka is living alone without her children or husband.

  • i have just read part of the transcript between homolka and barnardo, It made me sick and I couldn’t continue. Why is this disgusting woman free? Why was she allowed to get married and have children? She told barnardo in the tape that she wanted 4 children so he could have sex with them—-ugh. What a monster! She should be locked up for life and put in solitary confinement.

    • Elizabeth Keimach – I could not agree more!! What is wrong with the judicial system!!

      September 21, 2020
      • She would have been given the same sentence as Paul but his lawyer illegally hid the tapes. She snatched up a plea deal before the tapes were reviewed, otherwise she would have been locked up for life. You should be allowed to revoke a plea deal under certain circumstances. I’ve heard what was on those tapes and its horrifying. They should have been able to seperately charge her with other crimes to keep her in prison like theft, incest, child “images” etc. I can’t believe they just dropped all those stipulations after she was released.

    • I agree . It maybe that karma will get her and do something to her children? Karma is real!

      November 2, 2020
      • First of all, that’s not even remotely close to how “karma” is supposed to work. Second, why on earth would you want something bad to happen to an innocent child? They didn’t ask for her to be their mother or even to be born. With that kind of logic, maybe all the victim’s parents did something terrible in their lives and it was just “karma” that happened to their daughters and we shouldn’t have any sympathy. Do you see how ridiculous that is now?

    • I would love to run into her in the streets!!!!!

      November 2, 2020
    • Karla Homolka aka 👹 monster should be in prison for life. And now she has 3 kids. Thank goodness their no longer with her. Sometimes our justice service does it wrong. There are NO SECOND CHANCES FOR PEOPLE LIKE THIS! The only thing that gives comfort is the fact that GOD will judge her harshly. I really wish that her life is hell & no joy for her. All those victims didn’t deserve what they got, including her own SISTER!

      November 10, 2020
    • Hopefully someone will get her when she’s alone and give her the same fate her sister received. She does not deserve to live!!!

      November 14, 2021
  • Karla homolka should be in prison for the rest of her life just like her ex-husband who died in prison I’m glad she’s alone I hope her husband and kids from her second marriage never see her again

    September 25, 2020
    • Her ex husband did not die in prison, unfortunately. He’s still alive.

      October 5, 2020
    • Sorry to break the bad news, but 56 year old Paul Bernardo is still alive.

  • How do you know she’s not living with her husband and kids?

    October 7, 2020
    • I just read she don’t have her husband and kids, maybe he found out about her past

      November 27, 2021
      • She married her lawyers brother. So, of course he knew about her past. Further to this, she does NOT live alone and has 3 kids now. Also, the judicial law in Canada is different than that of the USA. Just because we live on the same continent, does not mean we have the same judicial system. Goodness. Bad attempt at “journalism” Hope you don’t consider yourself to be a journalist.

  • Who the sicko who married her and had kids with this monster!! The stories on right now I had to turn it off it’s so horrible.

    December 8, 2020
  • This monster should have been locked up for the rest of life, I can’t believe they set her free and that someone actually married her, she had a choice but she chose to do what she did. Very tragic for the innocent victims and their families. She is pure evil

    December 15, 2020

Boy !!!! did he cause a seen. She did not get laid that night.I ENJOYED THAT!!! She should be serving a life sentence too!!!! MONSTER!!!!

      March 6, 2021
      • The guy she was dancing with had the perfect opportunity for Karma. He should have took her to a hotel, undressed her tied her up & gave her what was owed to her. Damn, too bad. Would have saved taxpayers a lot of money. He would have been a hero.

        July 10, 2021
  • She’s living in Montreal with her husband and 3 kids. He is related to her lawyer and is a 7 day Adventist’s.poor children living with this monsters legacy.

  • I remember being so young when I heard this disturbing story. Before anything was on the internet. You kind of needed these stories to circulate to teach you to stay safe. So sickening is was before we all became desensitized with the the web. These people are damaged. There is no rehabilitation that can fix this. She was selfish to have children. Hope they have been taken away. I believe in forgiveness, but there is a limit and she and her then boyfriend are evil. There is no redemption.

  • I feel if a sexual predator has to disclose everything about themselves she should too! She should not live a cushy life, those girls that she HELPED kill aren’t here to live a cushy life! Shame on the justice system! I’m all for when you do your time you should be free but she got over! I know deep down she’s miserable though because you can be saved all you want but those thoughts of what SHE DID TO THOSE POOR GIRLS still come up!She needs to repeat and ask God for forgiveness!!

  • Lethal Injection … the evidence is all on tape.

    December 21, 2021
  • Why isn’t she being publicly hounded, tracked and her location revealed as it should be? Forget the govt Forget the so called Canadian justice system. We are Americans with all the tools we need to prevent this slime from slithering away. She needs a giant red arrow pointed at her violent lying face every day of her existence. Where are all the internet stalkers when you need them???

  • While I agree that she should rot in Hell, our judicial system is considered one of the best in the world. The problem wasn’t our system, but Bernardo’s first lawyer Ken Murray who hid the tapes so the Crown had no choice but to make a plea deal, or risk letting Bernardo (and Homolka) walk free! They didn’t have the physical evidence for the murders! The real problem was that once her plea deal was appealed, since she lied and that is grounds to dismiss a plea bargain, the judge who ruled over this appeal, upheld it. HE and Ken Murray are the ones responsible, nobody else (besides the monsters). Our judicial system is normally good. Unlike the US where they kill innocent people and jail thousands for minor offences like having a couple of joints of marijuana. I’d rather see one guilty person walk free than thousands be jailed for life or put to death when they are innocent. People are understandably outraged that Homolka got off so easily, but it wasn’t the fault of our system. It was a lawyer who wanted to showboat (and who was too stupid to understand you can’t withhold evidence,!) and a moronic judge who I hope never sleeps soundly again. A lot was learned from this case, thankfully and I doubt that Homolka will ever truly be happy or at peace. She expected to live like a queen with Paul, remember? Now she has to live in hiding and someday her kids will read all this and be disgusted by the monster who spawned them. Of this I have no doubt.

  • For those saying “lethal injection” do your homework. Not only is it NOT a deterrent (many studies have proved this) but it costs a LOT more money for capital punishment, with all the additional legal appeals, etc.. Plus, sitting in a small cell to think about what you did and what you’ll never have (freedom) is surely a lot more horrific than a needle in the arm or whatever. It’s just too easy for all they’ve done! Now I have no issue with crap food and castration….. :-)
    I believe they will pay in the end, far worse than anything we can do to them here.

  • The real hell but quite effective way to deal with her would be to six Scientology lawyers and stockers on her that’s a hounding she might not survive they would drive her straight over the cliff like a pack of lemmings
