Is it OK to let someone who has been to jail for the rape and murder of teenage girls to be around children? That’s the question on the minds of most people after Karla Homolka was spotted volunteering at her children’s elementary school.
Homolka and her recent husband have three kids together and she sometimes volunteers at their private Christian school in Montreal, Canada.
“We don’t want her here. How would you feel knowing that your child is interacting with a person who is a serial killer? It’s not right,” one parent said.
Meanwhile, a Seventh-day Adventist Church spokesman said the school board was fully aware of Homolka’s history and said she is never left alone with the kids inside the school.
The spokesman said:
“She is not a regular volunteer and can never be alone with any children, either in school or churches. It is protocol for all of our schools across Canada, and most of the world, to do background checks, not only on teachers, but volunteers as well as clergy. As I said, she is not a regular volunteer. Rarely would she have cause to go into the school, and when she is, she is never alone.”
