E75: Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka

August 12, 2019

Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, the "Ken and Barbie Killers", are without a doubt Canada's most famous serial killers. On the outside, the couple seemed to have it all - good looks, steady jobs, and an undeniable romantic chemistry. Unbeknownst to everybody around them, both Bernardo and Homolka were sexual sadists who pushed each other to the limit. Between December 1990 and April 1992, the pair raped and killed three teenage girls, capturing nearly every moment on video. The details of their gruesome crimes continue to shock Canadians to this day, and their subsequent criminal trials generated some of the most newsworthy moments of the time. In the eighth installment of our Killer Canucks series, we discuss the life and crimes of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka.
