I don't know how far the story traveled, but I'm pretty sure that most people around these parts (my parts, I mean) know the horrendous story of Paul Bernardo and his wife Karla Homolka. He was a serial rapist before turning into a serial killer with a fondness for teenage girls. With the help of his loving bride, he first killed her little sister, then abducted, sexually assaulted, tortured and killed two area school girls - making sure to catch it all on film.
Karla was fully complicit. She was there. She participated in the torture. She helped kill her own sister, for God's sake. She later claimed spousal abuse and tried in vain to make it appear as though she too was a victim of this horrible man, but the public didn't buy it.
The "Deal with the Devil", as it has come to be known, meant that she would only serve 12 years for her part in the murders. She was finally released back into the free world last summer, much to the horror of the victims' families and society at large.
Her husband is still serving time and will likely never be released, thank God.
Karla, on the other hand, seems to have moved on. Yesterday she had a baby boy.
Yes, a convicted murderess who helped a man kill her own sister and then two teenage girls just had a child of her own.
Yeah, 'cause THAT'S fair.
