    (January 1, 1940-September 30, 2011)
    Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Serial killer
    Murdered eleven boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 18 (1980-81)
    Pled guilty and received 11 life sentences (1982)
    Known as 'the Beast of British Columbia'
    Even before turning to murder, he had racked up 83 convictions on charges including theft, breaking and entering, armed robbery and escaping from custody.
    He drugged, sexually molested and tortured his victims before killing them.
    He agreed to confess to the crimes and lead police to the bodies of seven victims that had not yet been discovered in return for a payment of $100,000 to his wife.
    A forensic psychiatrist called him 'the most extreme sexual deviant, the most disturbed, most pathological personality I have ever encountered.'
    Asked to compare himself with the villian from 'Silence of the Lambs,' he replied 'There is no comparison. Hannibal Lecter is fiction. I'm real.'
    While in jail, he taunted the parents of his victims by sending messages describing how he killed their children.
    He received an Old Age Security pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement while incarcerated, totalling $1,169.47 a month.
    Shortly before his death from cancer, he was transferred from prison to a hospital in Quebec.
    Asked what he would do if he was released, he replied 'I'd take up where I left off.'
    He was stabbed by inmates after telling authorities about a prison drug-smuggling ring (1976).
    His wife's lawyer said, 'He was a personable, charming guy. When he walked into my office, it was the cops that looked bad.'
    Although he asked for payments of $10,000 for each murder he confessed to, he agreed to make the first 'a freebie.'
    The difficulties investigators found in tying together his murders prompted the RCMP to created the Violent Crime Linkage Analysis System.
    His case prompted the elimination of the 'faint hope' clause (allowing any prisoner to petition for parole after fifteen years) for multiple murderers.
