Clifford R Olson to appear before parole board

“He reminds me of the character in the film – Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal Lecter is a fictitious character, but Clifford Olson is very real,” said Sharon Rosenfeldt, the mother of 16-year-old Daryn Todd Johnsrude, one of 11 children and teenagers murdered by Olson in British Columbia between November 1980 and July 1981. The victims – eight girls between 12 and 18 years old and three boys between 10 and 16 – were tortured and sexually assaulted before Olson murdered them.

On Tuesday, Rosenfeldt and several other relatives of the 11 youngsters Olson murdered are expected to attend his parole hearing at the Special Handling Unit in Ste. Anne des Plaines, a so-called super-maximum penitentiary, 30 kilometres north of Montreal. He was transferred to the penitentiary in June 1997 after it became apparent Olson, now 70, planned to escape from a penitentiary in Kingston.

It will be Olson’s second attempt at a release. He was denied both day and full parole in July 2006 after a bizarre hearing where he spewed out a series of wild lies and told the parole board members listening to his case that he didn’t care what they thought of him.

The board was also presented with a series of negative psychiatric evaluations, including one prepared in 1997 that described Olson as “the quintessential psychopath, showing the ultimate moral alienation.” Olson refused to participate in other evaluations following that one.

Three relatives read victim-impact statements during the 2006 hearing and audio recordings from others were played for the board. All described how Olson ruined many lives. But Olson showed no sign of remorse and Rosenfeldt said she doesn’t expect to find any this time around.

“It’s probably going to be the same. He is a narcissistic psychopath who takes great joy at being the centre of attention,” said Rosenfeldt, who will read a victim-impact statement on Tuesday. “I don’t have to be at the hearing. But I definitely will be there. The only reason is to give a face to my son. His life was taken from him.”

“I will attend every two years until either he dies or I do,” she said.”

Olson was in the news not too long ago over the fact that he was still getting federal money meant for seniors to live on. He is prison, all his needs are already paid for.

A bill that was crafted after the government learned that serial killer Clifford Olson is receiving federal seniors’ benefits is on its way to the Senate for final approval after it was unanimously passed in the House of Commons.

The proposed legislation would strip incarcerated seniors of their old-age supplements, affecting about 400 inmates serving terms of two years or more.

Olson has said he would sue the government if the bill passes.

The proposed legislation cleared the Commons on approval of all parties, less than six months after it was introduced by Human Resources Minister Diane Finley, who said that paying benefits to imprisoned seniors was “offensive and outrageous.”
