Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, a pair of most Famous Killers rocked the nation. Their crimes were so shocking, in fact, that after their arrests, there was a media blackout to prevent jury bias.
Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo met in 1987 when Paul was 23 and Karla was just 17. Despite the age difference, the two immediately found comfort in each other’s psychopathic tendencies.
Bernardo had a long history of abuse and sexual deviancy, while Homolka was by most accounts a model teenager. According to police records, the former was responsible for, or at least suspected of, 19 molestation cases in the Toronto area.
