Did You Know?


This case is based on the real life case of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams. In 2010 Russell was questioned by the Ontario Provincial Police after finding tire tracks at the scene of a murder that they matched to Russell's SUV. Russell came in for a voluntary interview, during the 10 hour long interview Russell confessed to breaking into the homes of 82 different women, stealing their underwear and taking pictures of himself wearing them. He also confessed to breaking into the bedroom of a 12 year old girl, putting her training bra and panties on and then masturbating while lying in her bed, and leaving a note on her computer thanking her for letting him take her training bra as a memento. He also confessed to sexually assaulting two women, one of them being 27-year-old Jessica Lloyd, an officer under his command, and murdering them. After the interview he led police to the body of one of the women he killed. He eventually pled guilty to 82 charges of breaking and entering, two counts of sexual assault in the first degree, two counts of forcible confinement in the first degree and two counts of first degree murder. On October 21, 2010, Williams was sentenced to two life sentences for first-degree murder, two 10-year sentences for other sexual assaults, two 10-year sentences for forcible confinement, and 82 one-year sentences for breaking and entering. In exchange for pleading guilty and sparing his victims and their families the pain and humiliation of a trial the judge ordered his sentences to be served concurrently, meaning he will have to serve a minimum of 25 years before being eligible for parole. Had he been convicted in a trial instead of pleading guilty he would of served his sentences consecutively, meaning he could have been given a maximum sentence of 322 years. See more »
