Media relevations hit today that alleged serial rapist and murderer Colonel Russell Williams was a close friend of convicted serial rapist and murderer Paul Bernardo.
Colonel Russell Williams and Paul Bernardo were “pals” when they attended the University of Toronto in the 1980s.
They both studied economics at the Military Trail campus in east-end Toronto and graduated together in 1987.
Unidentified police sources tell the newspaper the two “partied” together and that their relationship is now under scrutiny by police.
In what is turning out to be a movie in the making questions are pouring in as Colonel Williams past is starting to be scrutinized by law enforcement officials around Canada and in other parts of the world.
I was questioning a US official yesterday about this case and potential ramifications and they stated that an arrest of this nature is usually not made unless there is a very strong case. He also stated that in the US Colonel Williams would be arrested by Military Police and charged in the military system. If convicted in the military system he would most likely be given the maximum penalty of the death sentence which has less appeal options than in the public court system.
Other reports have Colonel Williams leading police to one of the victims remains.
Col. Russell Williams gave a statement to police in which he allegedly directed investigators to where they could find evidence, including hidden keepsakes, inside his Westboro home.
