Canadian homicide perpetrator. From the age of 17, he spent most of his time in jail for breaking-and-entering, theft, forgery, armed robbery, false pretences and escape. On 17 November 1980, when he performed his first murder, he became a serial killer, going on a spree that lasted until his arrest in August 1981, during which time he beat or strangled 11 people, mostly young boys and girls.

He killed his second victim 25 December 1980. On 1 January 1981, he was arrested for rape and sodomy, but was released a short time later. On 16 April 1981, he bludgeoned a girl, age 13 to death; on 21 April, he beat a boy, age 16, to death; on 19 May, he bludgeoned another young girl, age 16 to death; in June, he strangled a girl, age 13; on 2 July, he killed a nine-year-old boy. On 7 July, he assaulted and killed a girl, 16; on 9 July, he strangled a girl, 14; during July 21-31, four more boys and girls, ages 15-18. He was finally arrested on 12 August 1981. His trial resulted in a lifetime prison sentence.

The victims had been given drug-laced soda when he picked them up. He wrote a book in jail and made a deal, quite legally, with the government for the payment of $10,000 for information on each missing child. He made $100,000 which he put into a fund for his family.

He died after a brief unspecified illness on 30 September 2011 at a hospital in Ste.-Anne-des-Plaines, Canada near the penitentiary where he was serving his sentences for his crimes.
