* Correction notice: in the final paragraphs of this episode, a report from Statistics Canada was quoted. “….“Police-reported hate crime in Canada, 2017”, reports that from 2010 to 2017, there were 31 hate crimes targeting transgender or asexual people that were reported to police.” - Please note that the published report used incorrect terminology - the word asexual should actually be agender. Statistics Canada have been notified of this error and have promised to update their report.

[Part 1 of 2] They call them the Ken and Barbie killers. The perpetrators of one of Canada’s most heinous and notorious crime sprees. They were a good-looking couple and seemed to have it all… but behind the mask was a cesspool of depravity and evil. This story is about Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, a couple of sexual sadists who terrorized the Greater Toronto and Niagara areas in the late 80s and early 90. Part 1 details their childhoods - explaining how they came to be Canada's most notorious couple, how they met, and the Scarborough Rapist attacks.
