    Why is important to check, check again and triple check details

    I was looking forward to reading this book and was enjoying it until I reached page 10. While making a point about serial killers using friends as accomplices and having the friends turn on them, she mentions Paul Bernardo and his ex-wife Karla Homolka. Karla did give evidence against Paul and was given a lighter sentence (she is now out of prison) but her younger sister was NOT an accomplice. Her sister was actually one of their victims. Karla stole animal tranquilizers from her job, gave them to her sister so Paul could rape and murder her. Karla's sister was not an accomplice but another victim of this psychopathic pair.The wounds these two left are still very much open here in southern Ontario, Canada and are still a painful topic for the families of the victims and the public. I only hope that the facts on other cases in this book are more accurate.
