It was 25 years ago Thursday the Crown made the deal with the devil, Karla Homolka.THE CANADIAN PRESS
She had those icy blue eyes that chilled to the bone.
There was the blond hair and that blue school marm dress.
But worst of all was that smirk that cruelly winked: ‘I got away with it’.
And for the past 25 years, she has haunted us. A profound failure of the justice system that punctures our hearts at the mere mention of her name.
Thursday marked the 25th anniversary of the Crown’s “deal with the devil” and the beginning of a trial that stunned Canadians.
That blond Beelzebub was named Karla Homolka.

In 1993, Homolka began serving her 12-year jolt in jail after pleading guilty in the sick sex slayings of schoolgirls Kristen French, 15, and Leslie Mahaffy, 14.
The trial lasted just a day and a controversial publication ban left the public in the dark.
“I didn’t want to go to work knowing that girl [French] was in the house and could escape … I was afraid,” she told detectives.
“I didn’t suggest to him that we kill her – but I knew that she had to be gone.”
She would point the finger at her estranged husband, Paul Bernardo, a fly-by-night bookkeeper whose hobby was raping women in Scarborough.
For whatever reason, we knew. Better than the cops, better than the crown prosecutors.
One look at those eyes and that smirk and we knew she was as guilty as Bernardo.
Homolka cagily played the role of a battered wife married to a monster.
She didn’t think it germane to inform Niagara Regional Police detectives or the Crown Attorney, Ray Houlihan, that she was an active participant in the depraved tortures the two teens endured.
Nor did she reveal that her little sister, Tammy, 14, died drugged out of her mind at the hands of Homolka and her husband. She had gifted Tammy to Bernardo as his sexual Christmas present.
And cops missed the videos. But the tapes told the tale.

Stashed away in the roof of their Port Dalhousie home were the incriminating videotapes. Homolka revelling in her twisted debauchery.
And despite Homolka lying and breaking her end of the deal, the Crown chose not to renege on the deal which would have seen the veterinary assistant jailed for life.
Instead, the cold-hearted killer was a beneficiary of Attorney General Marion Boyd, who saw Homolka as a victim.
Boyd would not budge from her preferred narrative.
Homolka did all of her 12 years — in relative luxury compared to her husband locked away in the dreary and drafty, now-closed Kingston Penitentiary. She enjoyed conjugal visits and lesbian affairs while caged.
She was back in the news again last year, working at a daycare in the Montreal area.
Concerned parents were not pleased.
But the killer soldiers on. A look at recent photos shows the same cold eyes and that now nearly imperceptible smirk.
Her days of haunting us will only end when she’s buried in the cold, cold ground.

The Black Book of Communism and by Martin Malia suggested a total death toll of between 85 and 100 million people.

'Beautiful, brilliant' Bernardo fangirl wants dangerous offender status ditched

A woman enraptured by caged serial killer Paul Bernardo is fighting her dangerous offender status.
Michelle Erstikaitis, 39, was convicted earlier this month of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon.
She was found not guilty of attempted murder.
Her dangerous offender designation came in 2011, but a Toronto judge told her Wednesday he had no power to cancel her DO status — which can mean indefinite incarceration.
Serial killer Paul Bernardo, right, was the object of Michelle Erstikaitis’s desires. POSTMEDIA
Famous for writing love letters to Bernardo, she was convicted of making death threats against a family he had victimized.
Erstikaitis has a long history of dangerous and bizarre behaviour, including setting her apartment on fire and stabbing an ex-boyfriend.
In 2016, she attacked and slashed a security guard at the University Ave. courthouse.

She acted as her own lawyer — as she did in her most recent trial — arguing it was time to lift her 2011 DO status. Erstikaitis remains under supervision for three more years.
The judge explained he had no jurisdiction to reverse another judge’s order.
The Bernardo fangirl said she wants her own psychiatrist to testify on her behalf, perhaps someone who “works with celebrities.”
“What we have here is a woman who says, ‘I want to be a success story,’ is beautiful, brilliant, could be in Hollywood doing whatever I like, could be married to the president of China,” she told the court, according to published reports.
“I could be doing whatever I want because of my intelligence and beauty, and there are no psychiatric issues other than I’m surrounded by jealous women, and have to call 911 and police every time I move.”
She is back in court July 13.
