Serial Killer Donates Cheque to Canadian Prime Ministeron September 17, 2010 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Last spring, there was a huge uproar in Canada when it was revealed that convicted serial killer Clifford Olson was receiving a pension of nearly $1,200/month from the Canadian government. The Prime Minister and Parliament wanted the payments stopped, but have little legal standing to make it happen.
Olsen, who is 70 years old, has been been in prison for the last 28 years, and for about 50 years of his life total. He claims to have received over $100,000 in Old Age Security cheques.
Columnist Peter Worthington of QMI Agency reports that he recently sent one of the cheques to Prime Minister Stephen Joseph Harper for his next election campaign. He claims that all the cheques have been donated to charity.
In 1982, Olsen pleaded guilty to eleven murders of young people in the Fraser Valley area. He claims to have killed over 100 people, but when police have taken him to sites where he claimed to have buried bodies, none were found.
While FBI profilers at Quantico’s BSU believe he has killed more than the eleven people to which he confessed, he also claims to have killed with Robert Pinkton (who fed victims to the swine on his pig farm) and to be friends with Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer.
Olsen is yet another example of how many psychopaths are accomplished liars, and that all of their statements must be individually corroborated to be believed.
