TORONTO — A new ebook says Karla Homolka is now a mother of three living in the Caribbean.
The publishers of “Finding Karla” say the 46-page book by journalist Paula Todd details Homolka’s new life as a wife and mother.
A news release about the book says Todd, following an obscure lead, boarded a plane to the island of Guadeloupe this spring.
She subsequently tracked down Homolka and spent an hour in the convicted killer’s apartment.
The ebook is published by the Canadian Writers Group and is available on Kindle Singles, Kobo, iBooks and Nook for $2.99.
In the early 1990s, Homolka and her then-husband, Paul Bernardo, were convicted of crimes related to the rape and murder of two teenage girls.
Homolka struck a deal with prosecutors in 1993 to serve 12 years in prison for manslaughter.
Little is known about her life since she was released from prison in 2005.
