Karla Homolka Wiki – Bio

Karla Leanne Homolka also is known as Leanne Teale, is a Canadian serial killer who, with her first husband Paul Bernardo, raped and murdered at least three minors. She attracted worldwide media attention when she was convicted of manslaughter following a plea bargain in the 1991 and 1992 rape-murders of two Ontario teenage girls, Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French, as well as the rape and death of her sister Tammy.

Homolka and Bernardo were arrested in 1993. In 1995, Bernardo was convicted of the murders of the two teenagers and received life imprisonment and a dangerous criminal designation, the maximum sentence allowed in Canada. During the 1993 investigation, Homolka told investigators that Bernardo had abused her and had been an involuntary accomplice to the murders. As a result, he reached an agreement with prosecutors for a reduced prison sentence of 12 years in exchange for a guilty plea for the involuntary manslaughter charge. Homolka scored 5/40 on the Psychopathy Checklist, in contrast to Bernardo’s 35/40.
However, the videotapes of the crimes appeared after the plea agreement and showed that she was a more active participant than she had claimed. As a result, the agreement he had reached with prosecutors was called in the Canadian press “Deal with the Devil.” Public outrage over Homolka’s plea agreement continued until his high profile release from prison in 2005.
After his release from prison, he settled in the province of Quebec, where he married again. She lived briefly in the West Indies and Guadeloupe, but by 2014 she was back in Canada and living in Quebec.

Karla Homolka Husband, Children

When Homolka was released from prison in 2005, she lived in Quebec for a while under the name Karla Leanne Teale and then moved to Guadalupe in 2007. During her time in the Caribbean, she had three children with her new husband Thierry Bordelais and adopted a new name: Leanne Bordelais. Homolka’s sister, Logan Valentini, said she returned to Canada in 2014 during the Magnotta trial. Homolka was photographed in early 2019 when she volunteered at a Montreal elementary school.


During the summer of 1990, according to Karla, Bernardo became attracted to her younger sister, Tammy Homolka. Homolka hatched a plan to frame Bernardo for drugging Tammy, seeing an opportunity to “minimise risk, take control, and keep it all in the family.” In July, “according to Bernardo’s testimony, he and Karla served Tammy a spaghetti dinner spiked with Valium stolen from Karla’s workplace. Bernardo raped Tammy for about a minute before she started to wake up.”
Homolka later stole the anesthetic agent halothane from the Martindale Veterinarian Clinic where she worked. On December 23, 1990, after a Homolka family Christmas party, Bernardo and Karla Homolka drugged Tammy Homolka with the animal tranquilizers. Bernardo and Karla Homolka raped Tammy while she was unconscious. Tammy later choked on her own vomit and died. Before calling 911, they hid the evidence, redressed Tammy, who had a chemical burn on her face, and moved her into her basement bedroom. A few hours later, Tammy was pronounced dead at St. Catharines General Hospital without having regained consciousness. Bernardo told police he tried to revive her, but failed, and her death was ruled an accident.

Karla Homolka and Luka Magnotta

Homolka has been linked to the murderer Luka Magnotta because he claims to be troubled by rumors about his romantic engagement. However, there is no evidence that Magnotta and Homolka knew each other in real life, even though they both lived in Montreal, Canada. In prison, Magnotta met Anthony Jolin and the two got married to Magnotta’s mother Anna Yourkin as a witness.
Three years before Magnotta posted bloody videos of kittens online, 25-year-old Homolka said he was wrongly associated with Homolka. Magnotta told the Toronto Sun: “The rumor basically destroyed my life, and I want to make things clear: that she and I have absolutely no connection.” Magnotta said he had to move because of the rumors and receive death threats.
