Not being from BC, I don't really know much about this story. I could search around the net all day but don't wanna.

What exactly happened here? She got life in prison? Who is this person?

Would someone mind filling me in please? That'd be great.

A number of years ago,Kelly Ellard and several "friends' too it upon themselves to severely bully and eventually kill the Virk girl(then 14,I think).
Several other people were jailed for their part in the crime...evidently Ellard won an appeal of some sort and was re-tried,found guilty again, and was just sentenced to life...

Oh, thanks I guess. What a nasty story.
As they say - with friends like that....

I think one of the sadest things of this case is that Kelly Ellard has shown absolutely no remorse. I read that she beat Reena Virk so hard that she left shoe prints on Reena's skull. Doctor's testified that they usually only see damage like that when a person is struck by a car.

She has been convicted twice, appealed the first conviction. Her lawyer says she will also appeal this conviction. Right now she's been sentenced to life in prison, but will be eligible for parole in 3 years and 9 months because of time served already.

I've followed this case since day one as I was a victim of bullying in school by girls. People seem to think it's only the boys that bully, but that's not the case at all.

I seriously hope she loses her appeal, and loses any attempts to be granted parole.

Actually, I have always thought that girls were way worse than the guys. Like Christ, if you didn't wear tons of blue eye shadow and skin tight jeans, they'd beat on you. Should have been the other way around, but what do I know?

The one picture I saw of this Kelly person, she just looked freakin mean. To the bone mean.

Girls are much better at psychological bullying too. Boys just like to duke it out in the playground, but girls, they get downright nasty!

How can she like, deny to court like that? After I read the book "Under the Bridge" , I was like totally freaked out! This story is so heartbreaking. She turned her back on one of her friends and claimed she "had her back", and said she killed Reena Virk, but that was false. Her friend even stuck a cigarette butt on her forehead. Kelly Marie Ellard held Reena Virk's head under the water for approximately five minutes. This is so heartbreaking....Well Kelly Ellard is now a 22-year-old woman and as a teenager, she had a lot of problems- she like punching people., she hated alot of people, she hated the police, and she was so negative.

Girls are far worse. When I was in highschool a bunch of girls beat up some other girl because of the band she liked. Lame.

2. Soya Sauce? Nick name? Do we want to know?

Just wanted to add that when Ellard was awaiting trial (her re-trial) she was in a few other altercations that resulted in further assault charges...all while waiting to go back to court on the Virk murder.
Ellard got what she deserved. She was a very violent youth - and that carried on into adulthood. Good thing she's behind bars. She never showed an ounce of regret, sorrow, or remorse...

Does she still have to go through her appeal or did she loose?

Believe it or not the last trial was the 3rd and she got a life sentence w/ no chance of parole for 7 yrs. She is now seeking either an outright aquittal or a fourth trial.
I think she's wasted enough of the tax-payers $.

Dumb white trash hideous bitches like Kelly Ellard should fry in the electric chair. She has no conscience, no life, is ugly and will always be a feral animal till death. People like her should be smothered at birth. She should be denied parole, and have her head blown clean off the second she leaves prison, if she gets out at all. Fear for your life, you trailer park princess, because the second you leave your home away from home, you'll be dragged under a bridge, beaten and have a cigarette put out in your eye, hopefully while you're still alive. To call you an animal is an insult to animals, you're a pile of **** covered with garbage, and you always will be. Your time is coming, so stay in prison where you're safe, you cowardly piece of white trash ****.

Just yesterday I watched a documentary on this murder called "Bloodlust under the Bridge". Although everybody involved is guilty and should be considered responsible for this murder, I cannot believe that the actual killer (who dealt the final blow and held her head under water until she died), is walking around like nothing. I am amazed at Canadian courts and laws that allow this "demon" in human form to walk around freely. Could it be because her stepfather was the National Soccer coach? The epitome is that this girl shows absoloutely no remorse for this....that's why the word "demon" is used. A thing like that cannot be human. I am also amazed that with so many righteous people out there, nobody has gone after these people and made them pay somehow. If the murdered girl was part of my family, I would of hunted them down one by one and made them pay for what they did.....trust me there are ways. Especially that Ellard thing. Disgusting.

I wonder what made her like she was? Was she abused early on? She was not an unattractive girl. I've always wondered what happened to turn her into the monster that she is.

Who knows? It may not have been anything! Some people are just bad. It's in their nature.

No remorse, no empathy, very selfish.

She is a psychopath and she should never be allowed out of prison under any
circumstances. This girl is trying to prove she is better than the system and
we should continue to insist on a dangerous offender status.

Not surprising...........what goes around generally comes around. And yet I can't help thinking that way back when there was a little girl who laughed and cried and bled and hurt just like the rest of us and somehow got derailed.

I try not to be a bleeding heart. I like swift and meaningful justice and sentencing. But, Iike you, I esitate to sit and gloat over for that exact reason. That, and the fact that we have a reform system... the idea is to make a meaningful change in the person as they WILL be reintering society, not to turn a broken, spiteful person even worse, and then set them loose on the population once again.

This story keeps coming back and it touches us all because we knew who the bullies were,
or we were subject to their twisted games, at least some of us. I remember my first week
of school, I was a bigger kid but still I was only six. The grade five bully decided to make an
example of me and show how brave he was. The only thing he didn't know was my dad was
a man who fought his way across North Africa, Italy and Northern Europe. He also wanted
to make sure I could at least defend myself once I went to school. The poor little bu**er that
picked on me. I beat the hell out of him, and then the other kids that he used to have as
friends turned on him.
Kelly Ellard is the type of person that has no conscience, she will say or do whatever it takes
to have her own way. This time she is finding out that her life plan is not going to go her way.
I predict that if she were to get out, she will not be out for long, as she has learned nothing
from this experience.

I too find it rather sad, in a "what a waste of a life" kind of way.

We all come into this world with more or less the same kind of promise. Where and why does it go so wrong for some?

I cannot believe that anybody can be this way and be at all happy ever. And that's sad.

Notorious teen killer Kelly Ellard seeks day parole 2 decades after vicious murder
Tamsyn Burgmann, THE CANADIAN PRESS
First posted: Sunday, May 01, 2016 08:17 PM EDT | Updated: Sunday, May 01, 2016 08:25 PM EDT
VANCOUVER -- Almost two decades since an ostracized 14-year-old was swarmed, viciously beaten and then callously drowned near a Victoria bridge, Reena Virk's most notorious killer is asking for release.
Kelly Ellard was 15 years old in November 1997 when she smashed Virk's head against a tree and then held the Grade 9 student's head underwater until she stopped moving.
Ellard is scheduled to attend her first day-parole hearing on Tuesday, seven years after the Supreme Court of Canada rejected an appeal of her second-degree murder conviction.
She has waived her right to a full parole hearing four times while serving her life sentence, but has remained eligible for day parole and applied for release several months ago.
Ahead of the hearing, Virk's grandfather said the family no longer believes Ellard can redeem herself.
"If she had admitted (her role) and if she had told the truth, then it would have been much better for our conscious, our pain, our satisfaction," said Mukand Pallan, 86, from his home in Victoria.
"The way she behaved, we're very, very mad about it. It doesn't seem right, she's not a good girl, she doesn't deserve any help."
Members of the Virk family showed compassion for many years towards Ellard, three others girls convicted of assault and Warren Glowatski, who was also found guilty of second-degree murder in the teen's death.
They no longer believe Ellard, now 33, will change but will trust the federal parole board to make the correct decision, Pallan said.
"It is very painful, but there's nothing too much we can do about it anymore."
Virk's parents, Manjit and Suman, have taken a vacation in order to avoid media attention, Pallan added.
The attack focused a national spotlight on bullying and teen violence, particularly among girls.
The murder happened late in the evening after Virk joined a group of teens gathered outside a local school to drink and smoke pot. She was assaulted until bloody by several teens and then crossed a bridge, pleading to be left alone. Successive trials heard that Ellard and Glowatski followed.
During Ellard's third trial, a pathologist testified Virk's brain was swollen and she suffered at least 18 forceful blows to her body. She died from drowning and her body was found adrift in a local inlet.
Ellard was put on trial for murder as an adult.
A jury found her guilty during the first trial in 2000, but the verdict was overturned and a new trial ordered when the B.C. Court of Appeal determined the Crown had conducted cross-examination improperly.
She testified during her second trial in 2004, sobbing and insisting she "never crossed the bridge." The jury was unable to reach a verdict.
Ellard didn't testify during her third trial in 2005. She was convicted and then won an appeal, but Canada's highest court rejected the case and restored the conviction.
She has run into other trouble since Virk's death.
Ellard's bail was revoked in 2004 while she was living in a halfway house awaiting trial. She was charged with assault causing bodily harm of an older woman in a New Westminster park. The charges were stayed after she was found guilty in the Virk trial.
Court documents in 2005 said Ellard was a belligerent and often abusive inmate, who had violent outbursts that included throwing food and kicking chairs.
She was portrayed as having a fragile mental state as a result of her prison time during her sentencing hearing.
At the time, her mother Susan Pakos said in a letter to the judge that her daughter "has suffered more publicly and privately than anyone can ever imagine."
Her lawyer Peter Wilson described her as "a person everyone loves to hate."
Should Ellard's request for parole be granted, she would be placed under a release plan that includes a requirement she live in a halfway house, a parole official said.
A release plan usually includes a series of conditions attached to the parole board's risk assessment, such as abstaining from intoxicants and avoiding criminally active peers.
