Maclean's has a good article about the background of Skibicki and then victims. I am interested to hear about the evidence the police collected from his apartment. They must have dna for the women but not bodies. Also video evidence like with Bruce McArthur.

Looks like the defence is going for NCR. I hope it doesn't go over with the jury.

I watched the Dorothy Lewis documentary Crazy Not Insane about serial killers and whether they are mentally ill and therefore be spared the death penalty. Canada doesn't have the death penalty but I still don't think this guy should get NCR.

He will only get 25 years, max. That's the travesty of the Canadian "justice" system. You can kill as many people as you want for one low price.

Canada has a dangerous offender designation, so more than 25 yrs is likely in these kinds of cases.

The alleged killer admits to the 4 murders but says he is NCR due to mental health condition. Well we shall see...

What on earth does Trudeau have to do with criminal trials and sentencing, R4?

Evidence is started to be presented in court. Blood residue in bathtub. Video of male ditching multiple garbage bags in dumpster. Jewelry and clothing of victims in Skibicki's apartment.

Oh we can call him a serial killer now since he admitted to four murders.

R4 Trudeau? He has nothing to do with this.

You want to see easy sentences? Look at Japan. Look up the HORRIFIC case of Junki. And the killers got out, did more killing and crimes, and got short sentences. This was in the 90s.

Yawn. He just dragged a trash container, dumped the contents into a bin and then returned.

by Anonymousreply 12May 14, 2024 4:46 AM

Contents wrapped and dumped in the locations and during timeframe that fits the murders and how the remains were found.

His lawyers aren't disputing he killed and dumped the bodies. They want to prove NCR while the prosecution by showing the videos is establishing that he acted with forethought.

Funny, they let that Chinese guy go after only a few years.

And he committed a disgusting and horrific murder on a Greyhound Bus by cutting off another passenger's head, and eating parts of his body.

He was out after five years, and now lives anonymously.

That is so fucked up, I can't even...

The judge orders psych eval and subtly eyerolls the defense's weak protests to it.

"Skibicki has pleaded not guilty to four counts of first-degree murder. His defence lawyers are arguing he should be found not criminally responsible due to mental illness.

When asked for a response to this request for an assessment, defence counsel Leonard Tailleur told the court he is “naturally opposed,” but could not offer up any legal arguments against the request.

“Is that the best argument you have?” Chief Justice Glenn Joyal asked.

“That’s the best argument,” Tailleur responded.

“It’s not a good argument,” Joyal responded, ultimately granting the court order.

Skibicki is set to undergo the assessment early next week."

R5 like the one attached to Bernardo, that ENTITLES him to a parole hearing every 2 years, and the subsequent revictimization of the family members who then have to show up and face him every 2 years, which he no doubt enjoys since he's a fucking dangerous psychopath? That one? Yeah, ok.

Canada is a failed experiment.

R10 it was LITERALLY the Turd himself and his gaggle of Marxist incomps who removed the mandatory sentencing minimums out in place by his predecessor.

Sentences of serial killers like Dellen Milard, were immediately reduced from 75 years (which he got for killing 3 people) to 25. Milard will be up for parole after 25 years, same as Bernardo is now.

It fucking angers me that people on this board treat that fucker like some sort of saint because you like how he looks in shorts. Fuck you all. Cunts. I see you defending him time and time again with your full fucking ignorance of what he's done to this country on display. You sound stupid.

[quote] Paul Bernardo was born in Scarborough, Ontario, on August 27, 1964, the third and youngest child of Kenneth Walter Bernardo and Marilyn Elizabeth Bernardo (née Eastman). Kenneth Bernardo often sexually abused Paul's older sister, Debra, in front of other family members, and would eventually be charged with crimes involving voyeurism and pedophilia. Marilyn Bernardo often withdrew from her family due to depression and agoraphobia, eventually moving into the basement.

[quote] Bernardo presented himself as being a happy and well-adjusted child despite his family's dysfunction, and was an active member of the Boy Scouts. Beneath the charming façade, however, he gradually developed pyromaniac inclinations and dark sexual fantasies, one of which involved creating a "virgin farm" where he would breed virgin girls to rape.

[quote] After a fight between his parents in 1981, Bernardo, then aged 16, was informed by his mother that he was the result of an extramarital affair and that Kenneth was not his biological father. Repulsed, Bernardo began to call his mother "slut" and "whore"; she reciprocated by calling him a "bastard from hell"

The drama!

I'd watch that movie.

I was reading on Wikipedia about Skibicki and the article linked me to another Canadian serial killer of indigenous women.

This guy would engage in drinking sprees with them in the 1990s--sometimes as many as 200 in a year--in the hopes he could get them to pass out. Then he would pour more alcohol down their throats until they died of alcohol poisoning. And then he put the corpses out of the streets of Vancouver so it looked like they had drunk themselves to death all on their own.

It's amazing how many serial killers Canada has produced. They have reputation for being so kind. You're either kind or batshit crazy there. There's no in between.

Necrophilia not schizophrenia:

"A forensic psychiatrist testified he believes admitted serial killer Jeremy Skibicki is not schizophrenic, but rather his four killings were driven by a sexual attraction to dead bodies."

Dr. Gary Chaimowitz, a Crown-appointed forensic psychiatrist, testified Skibicki is likely a homicidal necrophiliac and was driven to kill the women because of his sexual interest in the dead.

Chaimowitz told court that Skibicki has a record of necrophilia interests dating back to his early teens. Chaimowitz said Skibicki told him he had been aroused by people playing dead or who were dead.

The trial also heard Skibicki sexually assaulted his former wife while she was sleeping. The ex-wife testified Skibicki had a fetish for her being lifeless, and he showed her violent pornography and suggested they re-enact it.

Research suggests there are nine types of necrophilia. The first involves an element of role-playing that escalates.

"People become increasingly exploratory and risk-taking," said Arntfield.

"Once you're to that level of depravity, it's very difficult to control. There's no sort of anodyne substitute for what you're doing in order to keep you fulfilled."
