One of the parents trusted with such responsibilities was a 47-year-old blonde woman called Karla Homolka, who had three children enrolled at Greaves. Her volunteer work at the school was even said to have included accompanying a group of kindergarteners on an outing to the Montreal Science Centre.
As well as helping out, the parents and students of Greaves also knew the outwardly respectable middle-aged woman for another reason. Homolka owned an appealing dog, and often brought it along to the schoolyard where the children could pet it – reportedly, she even took the animal into the classroom.
It was also said that Homolka shared her handicraft skills with pupils, teaching knitting to them in class. On the surface, she appeared every inch the supportive mom, engaging fully in her children’s education. But it turned out that this seemingly innocent woman was hiding a terrible guilty secret.
