He was a perfect man living a perfect life...which made him a perfect killer.
Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams commanded the largest Canadian Forces base in the country. He had personally piloted prime ministers, dignitaries, and members of the British royal family, and was one of the most respected and trusted soldiers in the military.
He was also a rapist and a murderer.
This is the disturbing true account of how one of Canada's highest- ranking military officers became one of Canada's most notorious criminals, including his ultimate capture, trial and conviction for a twisted spree of sexual deviancy and two brutal rapes and murders.

This treatment of the case of former-Colonel Russell Williams of the Canadian Forces offers respectful images of his unfortunate victims while remaining graphically detailed in its descriptions of the 4 brtual attacks (2 of which ended in murder) this vicious serial sex killer visited upon these women. The author even is sensitive to the violation. & victimization of the large number of women, girls, & families whose homes were invaded while empty, a crime often considered "victimless." All in all, an enjoyable and disturbing read.
The author discuses the police evidence, videos Williams took of 2 murder victims. As a police officer, this is a text book for interview interrogation techniques and I learned a lot about improving my techniques. Incredibly disturbing reading and has had me in insomnia. Gripping but I am so sad for victims and families in this case.
Russell Williams, the former commander of Canada's largest military airfield, was convicted in October of first-degree murder in the sex slayings of two Ontario women, Cpl. Marie-France Comeau, 38, and Jessica Lloyd, 27. He also pleaded guilty to 82 fetish break-and-enters and thefts, as well as two sexual assaults. Williams methodically chronicled and catalogued his crimes, shooting videos and still photos of himself in the act and amassing a huge collection of undergarments stolen from women and girls. Dozens of gruesome photos were shown during his trial. He is currently serving a life sentence in Kingston Penitentiary and can apply for unsupervised release, including day parole, after serving 22 years of his sentence. The Canadian Forces stripped him of his rank of colonel after his conviction. <br><br>Excerpted from David Gibb's "Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams," Published by Berkley 2011 and distributed by Penguin Group (Canada), in bookstores Oct. 4. Also available in the U.K. as EVIL IN PLAY SIGHT [Y Books, Ireland]. This post blends excerpts from multiple chapters. WARNING: Some content is graphic and may offend readers. Discretion is advised. Five serene minutes passed as the large shadowy figure towered motionless, looming over the bed of his chosen prey: a pretty young blonde. He admired her petite frame as she slept peacefully, clad only in a pink camisole and pajama bottoms, and was quickly aroused by his own vivid imagery of what was about to occur. His mind raced as his heart pumped furiously. He didn't understand his compulsion, his need to act out the fantasies that had enslaved him. He just knew that his deviant urges owned him. It was, plain and simple, something he had to do. He was merely a puppet to his perverse sexual desires. But his choice of victim was easier to explain. She had to be attractive, and she had to live alone. Males were not part of the equation; they were a risk he'd sooner avoid. Contemplating his next move, as he had done countless times before, he imagined his tender victim's terrified response. He'd enjoy asserting his dominance over his vulnerable prey; her forced submission and eventual surrender to his goal. He struck her hard on the left side of her head, jolting her awake. The struggle began instantaneously.
