The victim: Kimberly Proctor was "a great kid with a big heart"

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC 3736323
Kimberly Proctor

Her favourite nickname was Kimmie. She loved music, chatting on her computer, sewing clothes, watching Japanese cartoons and playing with her many pets. And she talked a lot.

"Our home is quiet now," Fred and Lucia Proctor said in a video statement to police in June following the brutal killing of their 18-year-old daughter in March.

Kimberly Patricia Proctor was a Grade 12 student at Pacific Secondary School in Colwood when she was murdered. The horrendous details of her death, however, shed little light on who she was in life.

By most accounts, Proctor had a fairly ordinary childhood. She loved her floppy-eared bunny Sunny, her dog Miko, and all cats. As a child she also owned hamsters and mice.

She had tickle fights with the children she babysat, played games on Facebook and chatted live to her friends on the Internet. She loved the music of singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne.

Amongst her friends, Proctor was seen as the peacemaker and problem-solver. However, on the Internet she complained of being bullied and having problems with boyfriends.
"She was a great kid with a big heart who was gentle — gentle to a fault," Fred Proctor said in his statement to police in June.
She was deprived of the chance to graduate, grow into a woman, get married, have children and maybe one day look back and laugh at the ups and downs of her teenage years, her family said.

"This has left a huge void in our lives. We don't know what she could have become, or would have been, or what future we would have had with her," Fred Proctor said.

At the time of her death, Proctor's mother was a personnel manager at Wal-Mart and her father was the president of Wilson and Proctor Ltd., which repairs and rebuilds industrial, logging and marine diesel engines. Her 20-year-old brother Rob attended Camosun College and worked at Wal-Mart.
Kimberly Proctor was looking forward to graduating, sewing her prom dress with her grandmother, and "growing up, so to speak," said her father.

Her best friend, Melissa Hadju, 19, imagined Proctor might try modelling or sewing clothes in the future.
"She was rambunctious and talkative, and she liked to have a good time," Hadju said Wednesday. "She had a great sense of humour — really silly."

Proctor attended Millstream Elementary, Spencer Middle School, Belmont Secondary and finally alternative Pacific Secondary.Best friends since Grade 7, Hadju and Proctor watched videos on YouTube and laughed — "rolling over" at times, Hadju said.

At Proctor's 16th birthday party, the girls stayed up until sunrise, dancing, watching movies and eating popcorn.
The best kind of day for the pair would be finishing school on a Friday and going on a shopping spree, telling each other jokes and "just hanging out," Hadju said. No outing was complete without iced cappuccinos from Tim Hortons.
If Proctor was shy, it was only in front of boys, Hadju said."She was very social and cared deeply for her friends and family," reads Proctor's obituary. "Kim was always willing to help people in need." To reflect her love of animals, donations upon her death were sent to Wild Arc, which offers rehabilitation services to wild animals on southern Vancouver Island.

Hadju thinks of her best friend every day.

"I don't let her disappear. I keep her always in the back of my mind," Hadju said. "I wish everyone knew how much we cherished her and miss her so much. Basically, she was loved and still is loved by so many people."

Proctor is survived by her parents, brother, her paternal and maternal grandparents and a host of relatives.
In a video statement to police, Lucia Proctor said only one thing: "All we can hope for now is justice to be done for Kimberly."

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimberly%20proctor_opt
British Columbia Teen Kimberly Proctor

Speaking of bad taste in men, we have Kimberly Proctor, the British Columbia 18-year old was lured away from the bus stop on her way to school by a 16-year old douchebag who she'd flirted with since going out with his best friend. Though she had agreed to go out with him after they broke up, she changed her mind, but they continued to text and flirt. On this morning, she blew off school and went back to his house where he offered to explain why they and others were being mean to her.

Instead, he met his 17-year old accomplice at his house (their identities weren't released because of their age), where they undressed her, bound her ankles and wrists with duct tape, stuck a sock in her mouth and sexual assaulted her for hours. A knife was used to cut her body, including, according to some reports, sexual mutilation. She eventually died of asphyxiation.

They threw her body in the garage freezer. The next day they put it into a duffel bag, jumped on a bus (public transportation is much handier in Canada) and took her to a park where off of one of the trails they set fire to her body. Then the 16-year old went to meet his girlfriend while the 17-year old went shopping with his mom, who bought him a video game and brunch.

The whole crime was planned out the day before, initiated by the 16-year old who has said he's dreamed of killing since he was young. He chose Proctor because he said she was an "easy target." Two days before the crime he sent a text to a female friend, asking, "What would your opinion be of me if I killed, raped or brutalized someone?"

Both of the teens would go on to brag of their exploits to a female friend, the 16-year old relating in graphic detail what he'd done. The 16-year old complained that "it didn't feel like he thought it would," while the 17-year old told the same girl that he only felt bad that he was probably going to get caught, but didn't feel bad for her friends or family.

The 16-year old was just a child when his father went to jail, but the crimes were very similar in that the victim was lured, bound, beaten, sexually assaulted, strangled and burned. Clearly we need to wash out his end of the gene pool. Prosecutors are trying to have them tried as adults where they will face 25 years without parole, as opposed to 10 years without parole.

Teen killers blame each other in murder of Kimberly Proctor
March 28, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber10
Kimberly Proctor

Warning: This story contains graphic content.

Two teen boys who planned the brutal rape and murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor last year have turned against one another, blaming each other for the most significant and horrifying acts that led to her death, a sentencing hearing in B.C. Supreme Court heard in Victoria on Monday.

“There is a lot of finger-pointing,” prosecutor Peter Juk said during the hearing that began Monday and is expected to continue all week.

Justice Robert Johnston will determine if the teenage killers will be sentenced as youths or adults.

Juk wants the youths to be sentenced as adults.

“As it gets closer to the court date, the 16-year-old starts pointing the finger at the 17-year-old, who in turns blames the most significant acts on the younger person,” said Juk.

In October, the two teens pleaded guilty to the first-degree murder of the Langford teenager, whose badly burned body was found under a bridge on the Galloping Goose Trail on the Langford-Colwood border on March 19, 2010.

After the guilty pleas were entered, Juk read a five-page agreed statement of facts, signed by both Crown and defence lawyers, that set out the gruesome facts of how the two teens lured the Grade 12 student to one of their homes, tied her up, gagged her, sexually assaulted her, beat and kicked her, suffocated her and mutilated her body with a knife over a period of several hours.

Since October, the boys, who were 16 and 17 at the time of Kimberly’s murder, but who are now 17 and 18, have undergone a variety of assessments to determine if they should receive youth or adult sentences.

In court Monday, members of Kimberly’s family, including mother Lucia, father Fred and aunt Jo-Anne Landholt sat stoically in the front row as the youths were led in handcuffs to their prisoner boxes.

The younger boy, with short brown hair and glasses, appeared subdued, looking down at the floor. The older boy, who is tall with short dark hair, also did not look at his former friend.

People in the crowded courtroom gasped as Juk described the crimes in more disturbing details than had been revealed in October.

According to Juk, shortly after the murder, the 16-year-old told a number of people about the crime.

He told a friend he murdered Kimberly, grabbed her by the throat and started to choke her.

He told his friend “they” raped her, he killed her to shut her up and “they” burned her body.

He told another friend, identified as C.M., that he invited Kimberly to the house, he raped her, he strangled her and “they” put her body in a duffel bag and “they” burned her.

In April, he told his girlfriend he killed Kimberly, “they” sexually assaulted her, “they” tried to strangle her, “they” suffocated her.

But more recently, he told a psychologist he participated out of loyalty to his friend.

The older boy didn’t tell any friends what happened, although in an interview with the RCMP he acknowledged his involvement.

Later, he minimized his involvement and lied when he talked to the court-appointed psychologist and psychiatrist.

The 17-year-old told his probation officer he wanted to rape and murder someone and they chose Kimberly because she was an “easy target.”

An important point is that before the rape, they planned to kill, said Juk.

“Each of them is very significantly implicated no matter which version of the story you accept. Both are party to unlawful confinement, sexual assault and killing,” said Juk.

Outside court, Crown spokesman Neil MacKenzie explained the rationale behind raising youth to adult court.

“An adult sentence can be imposed when the available youth sentences are not sufficient to hold the youths accountable,” said MacKenzie.

If the youths are sentenced as adults, they will receive a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole for 10 years.

If they are sentenced as youths, they will receive a 10-year sentence, consisting of a maximum of six years in custody and the remaining four years to be served in the community under conditional supervision.

Killers had sex with dead teen, court hears
March 28, 2011

Caution: This story contains material that may be disturbing to readers

LISTEN TO VIDEO NEWS REPORT

Disturbing and gruesome details of the abduction and brutal murder of an 18-year-old girl were revealed in a Victoria, B.C. courtroom Monday as prosecutors argued that the two teenaged killers should be sentenced as adults.

The boys, who were 16 and 18 at the time of the murder, pleaded guilty last year to killing Kimberly Proctor, burning her body before dumping it on a rural trail near Colwood. The pair was charged with first-degree murder, forcible confinement, sexual assault and indignity to human remains in her death.

Text messages between the co-accused revealed that they had carefully planned the abduction and murder of Proctor.

Both boys had also been involved in joint rape fantasies for at least a year before the murder, according to a psychiatric report presented in the courtroom.

On March 18, after declining the boys' advances, Proctor was lured to a home of one of the boys where her hands and ankles were duct taped. They stuffed a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for hours.

A knife was used to mutilate her body and she eventually died. An autopsy revealed she couldn't breathe because of the tape over her mouth.

Kimberly's parents and relatives sat in the front row of the courtroom as they heard that the boys both had sex with her after she was dead.

Her mother and father cried when they heard how Kimberly begged not to be hurt, and told her killers that she was sorry.

Crown prosecutors also revealed how the boys discussed using a funnel to pour Drano – a chemical drain cleaner – into Proctor's body.

Her body was placed in a freezer in the garage. The next day the teens carried her body in a duffel bag on a public bus to the Galloping Goose Trail, where they lit her on fire.

The teen's charred body was found near a bridge on the trail.

In online chats, the boys admitted to a friend that they had picked Proctor because she was an easy target.

The father of one of the teens is in jail for the brutal murder of a teen girl under similar circumstances.

Because the son is a young offender, neither he nor his father can be named, but the two killings were strikingly similar. Both girls were lured, beaten, bound, sexually assaulted, choked and killed.

In court last year, the boy said he had dreamed about killing someone since he was young, but offered no other reason for the murder.

Neither boys looked at the audience during Monday's proceedings – both stared straight ahead and only looked at the judge.

Punishment

The two-week sentencing hearing will determine if the young men will be sentenced as youth or adults.

A youth sentence for the teens would mean a minimum jail term of 10 years without parole. This jumps to life with 25 years without parole as an adult.

Crown prosecutor Peter Juk told the court that imposing adult sentences is the only way the pair would be held properly accountable for Proctor's brutal slaying.

In court, Crown lawyers played taped conversations between the boys as they were being taken to their first court appearance just three days after their arrest – and after two full days of police interrogation.

Juk said the casual banter between them proved they were "hardly affected" by the crime and "held their own."

Juk also contends the boys each changed their stories as the court date approached – accusing the other of the most horrific and disturbing acts.

A 40-person team from Vancouver Island RCMP clocked more than 20,000 hours during its investigation into Proctor's death, and conducted more than 250 formal interviews.

The details of Proctor's murder were so repulsive and appalling – some officers who worked the case have gone into counselling.

Teen killers thought Proctor’s murder would be ‘exhilarating’
March 29, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber11

The two youths convicted of killing 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor last March exchanged text messages stating that it would be “fun” and “exhilarating” to confine, sexually assault and murder the high-school student and then set the body ablaze.

Those comments were contained in a thick binder of evidence presented at the start of a sentencing hearing for the two youths in Victoria on Monday – proceedings that will determine whether they will be sentenced as adults.

In his submissions on Monday, Crown prosecutor Peter Juk placed considerable focus on text messages and conversations in which the two teens show no concern for their victim and, in fact, seem to find the situation amusing.

Only an adult sentence would be sufficient punishment “for the crimes to which they have pleaded guilty,” Mr. Juk said.

He noted that, in the days after the killing, the two youths, who were 16 and 17 at the time, made phone calls and sent text messages to friends bragging about what they’d done.

And according to police wiretap evidence played during Monday’s proceedings, even after they were arrested and charged with Ms. Proctor’s murder in June, the two teens displayed no sign of remorse.

During a 30-minute recording made with a hidden microphone while the two teens were en route to their first court appearance in a sheriff’s van on June 21, they complain about being unable to have a shower, read, or play video games, and gripe about noisy prisoners in other cells.

“This is like the worst bus ever,” the younger teen joked at one point. “This reminds me of elementary school.”

Later in the tape, the younger accused boasts to his friend that the story of Ms. Proctor’s slaying was “front page all over North America,” and makes light of police investigators asking if he felt any “remorse.”

Prosecutor Peter Juk told the court the audiotape shows a startling lack of empathy on the part of the two accused, given the nature of the crime.

“They seem to be having a rather lighthearted trip to the courthouse,” he said.

The two youths, who pleaded guilty in October to first-degree murder, cannot be identified under Canada’s Youth Criminal Justice Act. However, if the court agrees to sentence them as adults, the judge can lift the publication ban on their names.

Mr. Juk described how the two teens set up a meeting with Ms. Proctor and lured her to the younger youth’s home. He said the two teens then beat Ms. Proctor severely and spent several hours sexually assaulting her. They bound Ms. Proctor’s legs and arms with duct tape, stuffed a sock in her mouth and covered her head with a plastic bag.

While the official cause of death was listed as asphyxiation, Mr. Juk noted, there was also evidence of strangulation.

In a text message sent to a friend in Halifax less than a week after the murder, the younger accused admitted sticking a knife into Ms. Proctor’s body and cutting her internal organs. The two youths then stuffed Ms. Proctor in the deep freezer at the home. Mr. Juk said Monday it’s unclear whether Ms. Proctor was still alive at that time.

The next morning, the two youths loaded the body into a duffel bag and took the bus to a secluded area beneath a bridge on the popular Galloping Goose trail, where they set fire to it.

Mr. Juk said careful planning went into the crime, noting that the two teens shared violent sex fantasies in the months before choosing their victim. They not only planned the rape, but also the murder, sharing maps with suggested places for dumping Ms. Proctor’s body and discussing what kind of fuel was best to use to burn it, he said.

“In many cases where there’s a rape and murder, the murder comes as an afterthought. What is different in this case is, even before the rape occurred, they planned to kill their victim,” Mr. Juk said.

Both of Ms. Proctor’s killers had made romantic advances toward her in the month preceding her murder, but Ms. Proctor told them she wasn’t interested, he said.

Mr. Juk said text messages Ms. Proctor sent in November, 2009, indicate that the two teens, as well as other school friends, treated Ms. Proctor poorly in the ensuing months.

Two days before the murder, the younger accused text messaged a friend in Halifax and asked if she would be proud of him if he raped and killed someone, “assuming I executed it perfectly and was never caught.”

“It would depend on who and why,” she replied.

“Random victim,” he wrote back, “for … giggles.”

Sentencing Hearing Wraps for Killers of Kimberly Proctor



********** ***********

Doctors diagnose teen's killers as psychopaths

March 29, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber12
The body of Kimberly Proctor, 18, was found along the Galloping Goose Trail in Colwood, B.C., west of Victoria.

The two teens responsible for the brutal murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor have both been diagnosed as sexually sadistic psychopaths, a B.C. court heard Tuesday.

The two boys, who were 16 and 18 at the time of the murder, pleaded guilty last year to killing Proctor and burning her body before dumping it on a trail near Colwood. The pair was charged with first-degree murder, forcible confinement, sexual assault and indignity to human remains in her death.

Psychological and psychiatric reports presented by Crown prosecutors Tuesday described the younger boy as sexually attracted to the psychological and physical suffering of others. The doctors who reviewed him said he is at high risk to reoffend and should be jailed for a long time to ensure public safety.

They said he showed no remorse for the murder.

The boy was described as bright and curious -- even brilliant -- by the doctors. But he had a troubled home life, and entered counselling for violent behaviour at the age of six.

At 11, he started setting fires, and when he was 12, he began hitting his mother and would later be charged with assault for an attack.

That aggressive behaviour escalated over time. He got into fights with other boys, and on one occasion, used chains to hit a victim in the head. The other boy needed staples to close the wound.

The boy's father is behind bars for the brutal murder of a teen girl under very similar circumstances. In that case, too, the girl was lured, beaten, bound, sexually assaulted, choked and killed.

Because the son is a young offender, neither he nor his father can be named.

Second boy has violent past, too

The two teens met in grade five, and had a history of skipping school together and lighting fires. They were involved in joint rape fantasies for at least a year before Proctor's murder.

The older boy became infatuated with knives and got into drugs and alcohol at 14. The doctors said he like to burn things and got into trouble at school.

In 2003, when he was just 11, a psychiatric assessment revealed a trend of escalating violence against his mother and sister. He was arrested three years later for threatening his mother with a knife.

His mother reported that he once kicked the family dog, breaking bones.

The doctors who examined the older boy diagnosed him as a pathological liar with narcissistic traits, and suggested he should be monitored for the rest of his life. He also showed little remorse for his actions.

Defence lawyers did not question the experts' reports.

Crown seeks adult sentence

Prosecutors are arguing that both of the killers should be sentenced as adults in Proctor's murder.

A youth sentence for the teens would mean a minimum jail term of 10 years without parole. That jumps to life with 25 years without parole if they are sentenced as adults.

The details of Proctor's murder were so repulsive and appalling, some officers who worked the case have gone into counselling.

On March 18, 2010, after declining the boys' advances, Proctor was lured to a home of one of the boys where her hands and ankles were duct-taped. They stuffed a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for hours.

A knife was used to mutilate her body and she eventually died. An autopsy revealed she couldn't breathe because of the tape over her mouth.

Her body was placed in a freezer in the garage. The next day the teens carried her body in a duffel bag on a public bus to the Galloping Goose Trail, where they lit her on fire.

Victim impact statements, letter from Kimberly Proctor killer read in sentencing hearing

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber13
Kimberley Proctor's parents, Lucia and Fred Proctor, appear in a police video, describing their
daughter and asking for the public to help in the police investigation.


A sob rose in Linda Proctor's throat as she began to describe the unfathomable loss her family has endured since her granddaughter Kimberly was brutally murdered in March 2010.

"Take your time," Justice Robert Johnston said kindly.

It was the start of a long, painful afternoon in which victim impact statements from Kimberly Proctor family — including her grandmother, mother Lucia, father Fred, brother Rob, and aunts and a cousin — were read into the court record at the sentencing hearing of her two teen killers in B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Defence lawyer Robert Jones, who is representing the 17-year-old, also read a three-page letter from his client. Lawyer Steven Kelliher said his 18-year-old client had no wish to speak to the court.

Neither of the boys, who have pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, can be identified due to provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

As the youths looked on and people wept in the public gallery, family members described the joy Kimberly, who was known as Kimmy, brought to her family when she was born on Jan. 1, 1992.

Kimberly was a huge part of the closely knit family, a fireball from day one, a busy active little girl who loved animals and carried six bags of stuffed animals with her whenever she visited, said her grandmother.

Linda Proctor said she was helping Kimberly sew her graduation dress in March 2010. She has not sewn since. When she thinks of Kimberly's agonizing death, she feels sick to her stomach.

Aunt Jo-Anne Landholt, who put up posters when Kimberly went missing, said her niece was small but spunky, a girl who climbed into tree forts and wore a Bluetooth phone device while having tea at the Empress. "I can't believe this happened to my family," said Landholt.

"I can't eat. I feel I'm going to throw up. I always have a knot in my stomach."

At times, as the statements were read, the younger teen appeared to be crying. The older boy slumped in his prisoner's box.

Rob Proctor described a happy childhood sharing horseback riding, swimming and piano lessons with his younger sister. His statement, read into the record by prosecutor Tamara Hodge, said when he heard his sister had been murdered, he knew his life was over.

"I was disgusted. I

couldn't believe human beings could be so cruel."

Lucia Proctor's statement, read by her friend Jobina McLeod, described her profound sadness and overwhelming loss at her daughter's death.

The morning Kimberly disappeared, her mother kissed her goodbye and told her she loved her, "not thinking it would be the last I would touch my daughter and tell her I loved her."

"Sometimes I feel she is with me, in my dreams or walking beside me. She tells me to get over it and stop crying . . . but I just can't," McLeod read.

Fred Proctor's statement also read into the court record described the intense anger he feels that he was not able to keep his daughter safe.

"We will never be free of this until the day we die."

17-year-old killer's letter to the court

The text of the 17-year-old killer's letter to the court, as transcribed from an audio recording of court proceedings Tuesday.

My Lordship,

I originally intended to write this letter to humanize the man who will be deciding the rest of my life. Yet, the more I thought about it, the more selfish it seemed. I think I was fooling myself. I did not want to believe I am entirely powerless at this point. I couldn't admit I was afraid of what is to come after sentencing. I was desperately clinging to the hope that there was something I could do to get out of this ordeal, that maybe it was a bad dream. I've thought a lot about it though and it seems I've been misunderstanding hope. Deep down, what I really hope for is that whatever happens will be in the best interests of everyone. The hope that I can make the very best of what I have been given. I truly wish it didn't take this tragedy for me to realize the truth.

It's been everything I can do to put off writing this letter. This is the first time in my life that I have found words insufficient to describe the situation. I couldn't find the right words to express how I feel. Even now, I have little confidence in what I am writing. To me it seems easier to ignore it than acknowledge what I have sown for myself.

I am under the impression there is not too much optimism I will change. The matter, what I know, is in my heart. It will mean nothing to the experts. It is frustrating not being able to express the truth you know and even more so when you try and are not believed. That's why I will prove them wrong. If you give me an inch, I won't take a mile. I will take every opportunity to show that nothing like this will ever happen again. Somehow I allowed my own self-destruction to take a complete innocent down. I spiralled out of control and now that I've hit rock bottom, there's only one direction for me to go. I can't possibly imagine how I will be able to continue my life after what I have done, though I am praying I will find the tools I need to make a difference.

Yet, I will never be able to give back to this planet, that which I took. I am deeply sorry for what I have done and I take full responsibility for my part in the murder of Kimberly. I doubt I have the means to pay restitution to her family.

As a child, I hated my father for what he had done. I felt I was less than him and now I find I have become a worse man. If you told me 10 years ago that I would commit one of the worst murders in British Columbia, I would not have believed you.

There is one thing I would like to request My Lord. I feel it is exceedingly important that we prove that what is disclosed to the media during sentencing is in the best interests of my family, the [co-accused's] family and the Proctor family. I also plan to write a letter to the Proctors, but to avoid seeming opportunistic, I will write to them after sentencing. However, from what I have heard, they harbour no desire to hear from me. Regardless, I will make it available should they change their minds.

I don't know how to end this.

We owe no mercy to these killers
March 30, 2011

The two evil teens who planned and executed the sex slaying of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor are monsters who deserve to be put away for life - or as long as our all too lenient courts allow.

Given the horror of their premeditated crimes and the torture they inflicted on a young Vancouver Island woman with everything to live for, these conscienceless killers should never be in a position where they can prey on any member of our society again.

The fact that our justice system is even considering whether they should be sentenced as youths or adults shows just how out of touch it has become with the thinking of the average British Columbian.

If sentenced as youths, they will be locked up only for a maximum of six years. And that clearly does not represent sufficient punishment or suitable protection for society. Indeed, it is frightening to think they could ever be out in the community again.

Proctor murder 'is not in our mindset'

April 03, 2011

On Monday, two youths who raped and murdered 18year-old Kimberly Proctor will learn their fates.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Johnston will decide whether the teenaged killers, now 17 and 18, should be sentenced as youths or adults.

In October, the pair pleaded guilty to the firstdegree murder of Proctor, whose badly burned body was found under a bridge on the Galloping Goose Trail on March 19 last year. A five-page agreed statement of facts, signed by Crown and defence lawyers, was read into the court record. It set out the facts of how the teens lured the Grade 12 student to one of their homes, then, over several hours, tied her up, gagged her, sexually assaulted her, beat her, suffocated her and mutilated her body with a knife.

snipped.....

Court-ordered psychiatric and psychological reports on the teens -who were 16 and 17 at the time of the murder -show they are at a high risk to reoffend violently and sexually for up to 40 years. The reports say there is little chance of rehabilitation.

The youngest has been assessed as a sexual sadist -a tendency to derive sexual gratification from inflicting pain -with very strong psychopathic traits and strong indicators for necrophilia, an erotic attraction to corpses. A psychologist found him to be aroused by the physical and psychological suffering of others, had rape fantasies and was interested in bondage and sexual asphyxia.

The 18-year-old was not assessed as a sexual sadist but has a tendency to sexual deviance. He has had a conduct disorder that began in early childhood which involves defiant, anti-social behaviour.

By the end of the sentencing hearing, Juk had clearly set out how Proctor was brutally murdered and described it as a crime without motive or sense.

"There may have been some less element of having their amorous intentions spurned by the victim, some months before the killing, but the primary motivation for the crime appears to have been for the thrill of it and Kimberly Proctor was picked because she was an easy target," said Juk.

The question remains -what motivated the youths and what triggered them to act? In a phone interview from Ottawa, Glenn Woods, former RCMP director of behavioural sciences, said such crime is hard to explain because sexual sadism is a sexual orientation.

"It's like trying to explain why pedophiles have an interest in children. We can all understand why people rob banks because the end game is they get a lot of money they didn't have to work for. Most of us don't agree with it, but we can understand it," Woods said

"But this kind of crime is not in our mindset. We can't grapple with someone who could get gratification from hurting someone in such a heinous way."

Woods said it is surprising how young the offenders are. It is rare for sexually sadistic murders to be carried out by more than one person. However, when a sadist operates in the company of a second offender, there is usually a leader and follower, said Woods.

Langford teens get life sentences for sadistic murder of Kimberly Proctor

Two Langford youths who brutally raped and murdered 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor in Macrh 2010 were sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 10 years on April 4, 2011. The judge lifted the ban on their identities: They are Cameron Moffat, 18, left; Kruse Wellwood, 17, right. Photos from YouTube and Facebook.

Victoria, B.C. - Two teens who brutally raped and murdered 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor last year have been sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 10 years.

Today, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Johnston sentenced Kruse Wellwood, 17, and Cameron Moffat, 18, as adults and lifted the publication ban that had been protecting their identities since their arrest last June.

Johnston decided a youth sentence would not be of sufficient length to hold the teens accountable for their offending behaviour and imposed the maximum sentence for young offenders sentenced as adults.

“It goes without saying first-degree murder with intent to kill is the most serious of offences. The circumstances of this murder as admitted by the young persons are so horrific that no words can adequately convey the inhumane cruelty these young men showed Miss Proctor,” said Johnston.

“They planned in advance to sexually assault and kill Miss Proctor. They chose her because they thought she would be an easy target, not necessarily because either of them had any ill will towards her.”

A placement hearing will be held several weeks from now to determine whether they will begin serving their sentence in a federal prison or remain at the Youth Detention Centre until they are 20. The date for that hearing will be set on April 13. The Crown will ask the court to place the teens in the adult correctional system. The teens will be held at the Youth Detention Centre until that hearing.

In October, Wellwood and Moffat pleaded guilty to the first-degree murder of Proctor, whose badly burned body was found under a bridge on the Galloping Goose Trail on March 19, 2010. The two admitted they lured the Grade 12 student to one of their homes, tied her up, gagged her, sexually assaulted her, beat her, suffocated her and mutilated her body with a knife over several hours. They then put her body in a freezer, and the next day travelled to the Galloping Goose Trail and set it on fire.

This morning, Johnston also sentenced Wellwood and Moffat to five-year concurrent sentences on the charge of indignity to human remains.

Wellwood, who had been crying during the hearing, stood first, hands clasped in front, with lawyer Bob Jones by his side while Johnston sentenced him to life in prison. One person in the public gallery burst out crying.

Proctor’s mother, Lucia, who was sitting in the front row beside her husband, cried throughout the proceedings, wiping away tears as the judge imposed the life sentences on the youths.

Last week, during a grim two-day sentencing hearing, Crown prosecutor Peter Juk urged Johnston to impose adult sentences for the protection of the public.

Jones, who is representing Wellwood, and Steven Kelliher, who is representing Moffat, did not oppose the Crown’s application for an adult sentence.

“There was no point in making submissions,” Jones said after the hearing last week. “To have done so would have insulted the intelligence of the judge and not afforded the situation the dignity it deserved. We did our best for our clients, but we also wished to avoid a media circus like Reena Virk. We wanted to consider the feelings of the Proctor family as well.”

Jones will urge the court to keep Wellwood at the youth centre.

“The Crown might apply to move him to a federal institution because there aren’t facilities to treat him at the youth centre. But there are forensic psychiatric clinics in this town and you have to consider his age. I’m of the view, he’s doing well at the youth detention centre,” said Jones.

Wellwood is subject to control and discipline in the secure environment.

“He’s not beating up all the other kids. If anything, he’s had to ward off a lot of stuff himself.”

In eerily similar circumstances, Wellwood’s father, Robert Dezwaan, is serving a life sentence for the 2001 murder of 16-year-old Cherish Billy Oppenheim in Merritt. Dezwann got her drunk, sexually assaulted her and beat her to death.

Growing up, Wellwood was taunted continuously by other children once the information about his father was made public, said Jones.

“He’s still only 17 and to place him in the hardened environment of the federal penitentiary where he is going to be the subject of bullying or sex attacks has made him very afraid. I don’t know if that’s because his father is there and has told him things or if it would also create problems for his father,” said Jones.

Kelliher said he would not oppose Moffat’s transfer to the federal system.

“The evidence is overwhelming they can’t be treated in the juvenile system. It suggests they can be best treated in the federal system. We hope the classification will take into consideration his family is here in B.C. That’s a huge factor for a young person.

“And it mustn’t be wholly forgotten these young people have families too and that they are suffering terribly.”

Court-ordered psychiatric and psychological reports on the teens — who were 16 and 17 at the time of the murder — show they are at a high risk to re-offend violently and sexually for up to 40 years. The reports also show there is little chance they can be rehabilitated.

Wellwood has been diagnosed as a sexual sadist — a tendency to derive sexual gratification from inflicting pain — with very strong psychopathic traits and strong indicators for necrophilia, an erotic attraction to corpses. A psychologist found him to be aroused by the physical and psychological suffering of others, had rape fantasies and was interested in bondage and sexual asphyxia.

Moffat was not diagnosed as a sexual sadist but has a tendency to sexual deviance and the risk and thrill that go along with it. He has had conduct disorder that began in early childhood which involves defiant, anti-social behaviour.

The Times Colonist and other media have made an application to get copies of exhibits including the court-ordered reports and wiretap intercepts.

Proctor's killers should never go free: parents
April 04, 2011

The parents of a Victoria teen who was tortured and murdered by two classmates say they never want to see the killers released from jail.

Kimberly Proctor, 18, was lured, then sexually assaulted before being killed and her body dumped and burned near a popular hiking trail in March 2010.

Kimberly's parents, Fred and Lucia Proctor, said they wish their daughter's killers faced a more severe punishment than life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years.

"These animals aren't rehabilitable," said Fred Proctor outside the court after sentencing Monday. "They deserve to die a long, slow, horrific, painful death."

Lucia Proctor said she didn't even want to call them animals.

"To me, they're just monsters," she said.

Sentenced as adults

Kruse Wellwood, 17, and Cameron Moffat, 18, received the lengthy sentences, even though Wellwood was 16 and Moffat was 17 years old at the time of the murder. Supreme Court Justice Robert Johnson ruled Monday in Victoria that they should be sentenced as adults.

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber19
One of two teens who pleaded guilty to the first-degree murder
of Kimberly Proctor is led into custody.


Crown prosecutors had argued for adult sentences during the sentencing hearing last week and the teens' lawyers didn't oppose the Crown's application, because it could give the pair better access to education and rehabilitation.

Normally in Canada, an adult convicted of first-degree murder receives an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years. An exception had to be made in this case because, although Wellwood and Moffat were sentenced as adults, they were originally convicted under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

If the pair had not been sentenced as adults, they would have received a maximum of six years in custody and another four years to be served in the community.

During the hearing the identity of the two youths was protected by a publication ban because of their age, but the judge lifted that publication ban on Monday.

It can also now be revealed that Wellwood's father, Robert Raymond Dezwaan, was convicted of first-degree murder for the killing of 16-year-old Cherish Oppenheim in Merritt in 2001. That information had been included in the publication ban because it could have indirectly revealed Wellwood's identity.

Burned body found under bridge

The two teens pleaded guilty in October to the first-degree murder of Procter, a classmate, whose body was found on a popular hiking trail in Langford in March 2010. They later confessed they lured her to a home, bound and gagged her, then raped and beat her hours before suffocating her and mutilating her body.

The pair then transported Proctor's body by bus to the wooded area under a bridge on the Galloping Goose trail to burn it.

Both teens were described in assessment reports presented at the sentencing hearing as psychopaths with sexual deviance and conduct disorder. Experts found both had long histories of violence and anti-social behaviour and were at high risk to rape and kill again for up to 40 years.

Teen killers tried to lure another girl to scene of Proctor murder
April 04, 2011

As family and friends mourn one young victim of killers Kruse Hendrik Wellwood and Cameron Alexander Moffat, no one will know how close another teenage girl came to being their second victim.

Just after the youths were sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years in the sadistic rape and killing of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor, her aunt Jo-Anne Landolt reminded people that the two tried to lure another teen to Wellwood's house, while Proctor's lifeless body was still in the freezer.

"I am so very glad that girl didn't come over ... after you did this to Kim," Landolt said Monday in an emotional speech on the courthouse steps in the pouring rain. She at times addressed Wellwood and Moffat directly, while Proctor's parents Fred and Lucia stood next to her, fighting back tears.

"By doing that she saved her own life and spared her family what we have gone through," Landolt said.

On March 18, 2010, Wellwood and Moffat, who were then 16 and 17, bound, gagged, sexually assaulted and killed Proctor, and mutilated her body, at Wellwood's home while his mother was out. They stored her body in the freezer, and the next day, took it to a bridge along the Galloping Goose trail where they set it on fire. Her remains were found later that day.

Later on the night of March 18, over a period of about three hours, Moffat sent text messages to an ex-girlfriend, trying to convince her to sneak out of her house and come to Wellwood's. She declined.

In previous written submissions to the court, Crown prosecutor Peter Juk said the youths' reasons for trying to lure the other girl "will never truly be known."

Online chats show killer Moffat was active participant in Proctor murder
April 06, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber22

In his interview with police, Cameron Alexander Moffat tried to downplay his role in the horrific rape and murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor.

But a series of online chat exchanges released to the media Wednesday make clear that Moffat was far from an unwitting accomplice to Kruse Hendrik Wellwood in the murder on March 18, 2010 in Langford.

In fact, one week after the murder, it's Moffat who sends Wellwood a note suggesting they find another victim.

"So since we killed that bitch and it wasnt to (sic) hard we should do it again!" he writes.

The chat messages were part of the evidence gathered by RCMP major crime investigators and used to secure guilty pleas from Moffat, 18, and Wellwood, 17. The two youths — who were 17 and 16 at the time of the crime — were handed adult sentences of life in prison Monday with no chance of parole for 10 years.

Last June, in the interrogation room at the West Shore RCMP detachment, Moffat tried to shift much of the blame for the horrific crime to Wellwood.

Though bigger and stronger, Moffatt implied that he was under the younger boy's control, following his orders to tie up and rape their victim.

Kruse "was instructing me to do it repeatedly," Moffat tells RCMP interrogator, Sgt. Martin D'Anjou, in a calm voice.

"And, you know at one point he like, shuts me in his room with her and he's like, do it, and I'm like, I'm not ... and eventually he's just like screaming and stuff and won't even close the door."

Moffat said after he raped Proctor, he went into the living room and watched TV, trying to think of nothing.

There are some details he doesn't give up, saying they're too disgusting to verbalize.

Moffat describes Wellwood as nuts, and D'Anjou asks: "So do you think Kruse has lost it by this time?"

Moffat responds: "I'd bloody well lost it, like, I don't know what the hell's going on."

But the online chats in the hours before the killing suggest that Moffat knew full well what to expect. The boys discussed their murder plans in detail, describing how they intended to lure her to Wellwood's home, kill her and then dispose of the body. They even drew up a map of possible places to leave her body, circling remote areas northwest of Langford, although they'd end up choosing a spot beneath a bridge on the Galloping Goose Trial.

"I'm going to rip her nose ring out and burn it," Wellwood writes at one point. "Burn her flesh."

"Try and get her early," Moffat replies.

Later, Moffat says, "I want to get it done. I don't want to wait."

"I'm not killing her right away," Wellwood replies.

RCMP investigators used the boys' text and online chat conversations to help get a confession from Moffat, posting them on a large white board in the interview room. They also told Moffat about the DNA evidence they had linking him to the crime.

Police Interrogation Video Part 1 - Cameron Moffat evades questions from the officers about his role in the rape and murder, saying he doesn't know how Kimberly Proctor died.

Warning: The rape and murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor is a horrific crime.

We have not included some of the most graphic details out of respect for Proctor and her family. While many readers will still find the content disturbing, we believe it is important that the magnitude of the crime and behaviour of the teens, now convicted of murder, be revealed so the public can understand how the youths were dealt with in the justice system.


Victoria, B.C. - Court evidence from the sentencing of Kimberly Proctor’s killers, including video of a RCMP interrogation with the older of the two teens, has been released to the Times Colonist today.

The Times Colonist and several other media organizations applied to have access to evidence sworn in court during the sentencing hearing last week.

Michael Scherr, the lawyer representing the Times Colonist and other media outlets, said Proctor’s family wants the information released so the public has full knowledge of the horrific acts perpetrated by Kruse Wellwood, 17, and Cameron Moffat, 18.

The video recordings of the interview with Moffat and RCMP interrogators were taken at the West Shore RCMP detachment on June 20, 2010, after his arrest on charges of sexual assault, forcible confinement, first-degree murder, and indignity to human remains.

Killer Cameron Moffat on brutal attack of Kimberly Proctor: 'The biggest adrenalin rush you've ever had'
April 06, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber26

snipped . . . . .

But over the course of nine hours, the officers lead Moffat to reveal in increasing detail how he and Wellwood bound Proctor's hands and feet, stuffed a sock in her mouth and secured it with duct tape, cut off her clothes and took turns raping her over several hours in a house on Happy Valley Road that Wellwood shared with his mother.

"So how does that attack part start then?" D'Anjou asks.

"Kruse," Moffat says.

A few minutes later: "Kruse is obviously big enough and capable enough to keep things under control and that's just where I'm yelled at even though I'm just standing there, y'know, shock and awe, mouth open, what the f---."

Although police already had evidence incriminating Moffat — including DNA evidence and records of online chats between the boys as they planned the attack — the officers let Moffat argue that Wellwood played a larger role.

A skilled interrogator knows how to gain trust, pretend to empathize and even joke with a murderer, in order to carefully extract information, police psychologist Mike Webster said after he watched the video Wednesday.

"It's a testament to the method of interview that Sgt. D'Anjou is using," said Webster, who has consulted on police interrogations. He said D'Anjou employs a "soft persuasive" technique as opposed to a "power interview" in which the investigator bangs on the table and demands information.

"There was no arguing, no lecturing, no moralizing, no confrontation," he said.

"What he's attempting to do is build a working alliance with young Mr. Moffat. He's trying to get him to trust him and like him and under those conditions, Sgt. D'Anjou is going to give him enough rope to hang himself."

Davidson does the same — he tells Moffat he has "the bones of an honest person" and that "you do have some remorse and sick feeling about what happened to Kim Proctor."

Davidson later interrupts a string of questions by D'Anjou to offer Moffat a cigarette.

This "soft" technique was also used by Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Jim Smyth last year in the widely viewed interrogation in which former colonel Russell Williams confesses to the murders of Cpl. Marie-France Comeau and Jessica Lloyd and 86 other charges.

Moffat appears unsettlingly nonchalant throughout the interview. He talks with his hands, his voice unwavering, often laughing or chuckling while revealing disturbing details about the crime. He puts his hands behind his head as if reclining in a lounge chair and at times, walks casually about the room, looking at evidence on a white board.

He clearly relishes being the centre of attention and trying to outsmart the investigators, Webster said. "He's enjoying this, this cat-and-mouse game he's playing where he won't say certain things, will give vague names for things."

'I did not see any form of regret,' inmate says of killer
April 11, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber10
Kruse Wellwood has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Kimberly Proctor.

Kruse Wellwood confessed in detail how he murdered Kimberly Proctor and mutilated her body to several people, including his girlfriend, online friends and fellow prisoners at a youth detention centre, according to police evidence.

Caution: This story contains material that may be disturbing to readers


Wellwood's girlfriend was just 14 when he told her that he had raped and killed 18-year-old Proctor and set her body on fire near a Vancouver Island walking trail on March 18, 2010.

In an interview with RCMP on Oct. 14, the girl told police that her then-16-year-old boyfriend confessed the brutal crime during a stroll together about a month after the brutal killing.

"He just says ‘I killed Kim,'" she said.

The girl, who cannot be named, offered few details about what she had learned, but said that Wellwood had "tortured" Proctor. She said that the boys strangled their victim and possibly broke her neck to finish her off; forensic evidence has revealed that Proctor actually died of asphyxiation.

"I was shocked the first time he told me," she told police, explaining why she hadn't asked more questions about the murder. But she admitted, "I still wanna be with him."

She also said she'd met a teenager who'd recently been released from the Victoria Youth Correction Centre, where Wellwood was being held after his arrest. He told her that Wellwood had described his crimes in detail to other prisoners.

"I just wondered why he would do that, just tell everybody," she said.

In fact, at least five inmates at the correctional centre approached police to tell them that Wellwood had confessed the murder to them and other teens in their unit.

The teen prisoners told Mounties that Wellwood tried to pin the blame for the murder on his accomplice, Cameron Moffat, saying that the other boy forced him to play along. Wellwood said that he fell asleep after the boys bound and raped Proctor; when he woke up, she was dead.

"I didn't believe him that when he said ‘I'm gonna go to sleep,'" one inmate said. "How are you gonna go to sleep; you have a tied-up girl in your house."

Moffat was held in a separate unit of the correctional centre from Wellwood, but fellow inmates said they'd heard he was trying to shirk the blame as well.

"Kruse is just trying to pin it on Cameron, Cameron's just trying to pin it on Kruse," one prisoner said.

In his conversations with police, Moffat insisted that he was the one who had fallen asleep during the vicious attack.

Prisoners in Wellwood's unit described him as "weird" and "not right" in their conversations with police, and suggested that he should be punished to the full extent of the law. They said he showed no remorse when he described the murder.

"I did not see any form of regret in him. This guy, he had a smirk in his eyes, he was kind of smiling, you know," another inmate said.

Murderer ‘bragged' to online friends

Wellwood also spoke of the murder with at least two online acquaintances.

Police investigators flew to Halifax to meet with his ex-girlfriend, a fellow World of Warcraft online video-gamer.

"He told me that she went over to his house, and they like raped and murdered her, and then took the body and burnt it," she told an RCMP constable.

"He basically told me that he did it ... and he told me this over World of Warcraft." Wellwood mistakenly believed that the company behind the popular role-playing game wouldn't give police access to its chat logs, and insisted that any discussion of the murder be done inside the game.

The gamer friend also told police that Wellwood described for her in detail how he mutilated Proctor's body.

"He told me specifically that he put a knife in her vagina and cut through to her organs. And he actually, like, bragged about that part, like he highlighted it," she said.

Another online friend told police that Wellwood had confessed the murder in a telephone conversation.

"When I asked him why he did it, he just said, ‘Because it was easy.'"

But Wellwood was far less forthcoming when he spoke with police about a month after the murder. He suggested that some of Proctor's other friends -- so-called "Juggalos," or fans of the horror-themed rap group Insane Clown Posse -- might have been responsible for her murder.

"Why would you think I killed her?" he asked investigators.

He told the officers that he could never justify taking a life. "I don't believe in capital punishment either .... I don't even believe in war."

When police asked Wellwood if he was prepared to give a DNA sample, however, he refused.

"I have this thing about conspiracies," he said, referencing George Orwell's classic book "1984".

Wellwood and Moffat were sentenced last week as adults in the murder, receiving life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years.

Teen killers' family lives revealed in transcripts
April 12, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber14
Kruse Wellwood, left, and Cameron Moffat are seen in these undated Facebook photos.
They have both been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Kimberly Proctor.


Teen killers Kruse Wellwood and Cameron Moffat may share a lust for rape and mutilation, but their relationships with their parents couldn't be more different, according to newly released evidence.

Transcripts of telephone conversations and prison visits between the two boys who murdered 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor and their parents were made public this week. All of the conversations took place in June and July, after the boys were arrested for the March 18, 2010 murder in Langford, B.C.

The transcripts reveal that 16-year-old Wellwood's conversations with mother Nadine typically devolved into angry arguments and attempts at emotional manipulation, while 17-year-old Moffat joked with his parents and listened to their advice.

Kruse and Nadine Wellwood spoke by telephone on June 22, 2010, after Nadine brought her son a suit for court appearances. The pants were too big and the jacket was too small, Kruse says, and he berates his mother for not writing down the correct size.

"You did a very bad job listening to me when I expressly told you my sizes," Kruse says. "I expect that I'd be able to talk to you and I'd be able to tell you something and you'd be able to y'know, at least understand what I told you."

When she protests that the reception during their last conversation was poor, he calls that a "bullshit" excuse.

"Look Mom, there's nothing I can do being in here. So, I'm relying very heavily on you and you've been failing me every single time."

Nadine visited Kruse in prison on July 4, 2010. After a brief discussion about books -- Herman Hesse's "Siddhartha" in particular -- Nadine advises her son to plead guilty to raping and murdering Proctor.

"Look, just keep your fuckin' face out of it. I know what I'm doing. Understand that?" Kruse answers.

His mother tells him that she's afraid of him and that he violated her home by carrying out the brutal attack on Proctor in the family's garage while Nadine was out of the province.

"You have to understand that I can't support you in any way.... Like, if they were to put you on bail I'm not gonna take you in the house.... ‘Cause I don't feel safe," Nadine says.

Her son's answer is anything but reassuring.

"If you weren't safe you would already be dead," Kruse says.

The conversation also turns to Kruse's father and fellow murderer, Robert Dezwaan, who is currently in jail for killing 16-year-old Cherish Oppenheim near Merritt in 2001. Nadine says that father and son have left her equally frightened.

"You can't feel safe in your house when you have to guard why you say and do because you're worried that somebody is going to freak out," she says.

"I had the same thing with your dad.... You guys have no guilt, and no conscience, and some strange sense of, oh what was that word, narcissism."

She goes on to suggest that sociopathy is genetic and that Kruse inherited the gene from his father.

Kruse responds by disagreeing at first, and then suggesting that if what she says is true, she is directly responsible for his crimes.

"If you're telling me that it's the sociopath gene and I can't control it, then you giving birth to me is the cause of everything in my life. Everything I've ever done, I can't control myself," he says.

He later says that he loves his girlfriend more than his mother.

"Do you know why I love her and not you to the same degree?" Kruse asks his mother. "Because she's better than you, better. To me, she has more value as a person ‘cause she gives me more reason to love her."

Moffat talked about fitness with his parents

In contrast, Cameron Moffat seems to have a much easier relationship with his parents, listening to their advice and joking with them about buffing up in prison.

In a June 26, 2010 prison visit, his mother Sarah Moffat told him he should do push-ups in his cell.

"Try and remember about mind, body and spirit and don't get soft, okay?" she tells her son.

Father George Moffat pipes in with an example, albeit not a particularly analogous one: "Nelson Mandela was in jail for 27 years and he got in pretty good shape."

When Sarah tells Cameron, a pudgy boy, that she hopes he has a "six-pack," or a washboard stomach, when he gets out of jail, he answers, "By the time I get out I'll have a 32-pack."

The Moffats bring their son a blank notebook, but advise him to be careful about what he writes in it.

"Don't draw little guys running around with daggers stuck through their heads or stuff like that. That'll get you in shit," George says.

When he talks to his mother again by phone on July 5, 2010, a day before a court appearance, Cameron listens to his mother's advice about sitting quietly and shaving in the morning.

She also suggests he should show some remorse: "If you feel bad about it you need to let people know you feel bad about it, because this is a very bad thing."

Cameron replies that his "dignity" is getting in the way of that.

Despite that brief disagreement, the conversation ends with the two expressing their love for each other, and Sarah promising her son she'd do at least 60 sit-ups that day.

Moffat and Wellwood were both sentenced as adults last week to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years for killing Proctor and setting her body on fire near a popular trail.

Kimberly Proctor's dad calls for death penalty for daughter's killers
May 25, 2011

CANADA • Kimberly PROCTOR, 18 ~ Victoria BC Kimber15
Two Langford youths who brutally raped and murdered 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor in Macrh 2010 were sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 10 years on April 4, 2011. The judge lifted the ban on their identities: They are Cameron Moffat, 18, left; Kruse Wellwood, 17, right.

The older of Kimberly Proctor's two teenage killers will be transferred to a federal penitentiary, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Johnston ruled Wednesday at a placement hearing to determine where the pair will serve their sentences.

Cameron Alexander Moffat, now 19, will be tested at the assessment centre at Pacific Institution in Abbotsford for six to eight weeks to determine which treatment programs are appropriate for him. He will then be sent to prison to serve his life sentence, with no possibility of parole for 10 years.

Kruse Hendrik Wellwood, 17, can stay in the relatively more-protected environment of the Youth Detention Centre until Jan. 23 next year, his 18th birthday, Johnston ruled. At that point, he will also be assessed and transferred into the federal system to serve his life sentence.

"I think it's the best decision we could get," Kimberly's father, Fred Proctor, said on the steps of the Victoria Courthouse. "The judge did what he could with the laws we have. But these are two prime examples of why we need capital punishment in this country.

"To say you're going to give them treatment and rehabilitate them over the next 10 years and they could apply for parole is absolutely ridiculous. Why waste any more of our resources? They should be put under, put down. And, preferably to me, it should be a long, slow painful and horrific ending for both of them."

Kimberly's mother, Lucia, did not want to attend the hearing, he said.

In October, Wellwood and Moffat pleaded guilty to the first-degree murder of Proctor on March 18 last year. The two admitted they lured the Grade 12 student to Wellwood's home, tied her up, gagged her, sexually assaulted her, beat her, suffocated her and mutilated her body with a knife over several hours. They put her body in a freezer, and the next day travelled by bus with the body to the Galloping Goose Trail and set it on fire.

In April, they were sentenced as adults. This means Youth Justice Court must hold a placement hearing to determine their best interests and whether their placement jeopardizes the safety of others.

Prosecutor Peter Juk told the court that Moffat, who is substantially bigger and more mature than other inmates at the youth centre, has an adverse impact on others. Programs in youth facilities are only designed for brief three-month sentences.

"He's bored and anxious to begin treatment," said Juk. "He's not opposed to the federal system, but he is worried about his safety in the adult system."

If safety concerns arise, he could be transferred to another province or placed in protective custody, said Juk.

"But it's clear, to the extent there is hope for treatment, it's more available in the federal system."

At six-foot-one and 182 pounds, Wellwood is also large and quite capable of taking care of himself, said Juk. His behaviour has created concerns for other inmates.

Wellwood told a number of inmates about the circumstances of the offence, said Juk. Some needed trauma counselling.

"This disclosure has had an adverse impact on other young people, some as young as 12."

In a conference call last week, psychologist Jim Hemphill said he believes the only treatment for Wellwood's severe psychopathy and sexual sadism is castration or chemical castration, which is not available in the youth system. Penile plethysmography, which is essentially aversion therapy, is also not available.

Wellwood fears going into the adult system at 17, said Juk. He would also like to be closer to his mother and is doing well in school.

Johnston found the factors for and against Wellwood staying in the youth system were even.

"The overwhelming consideration is the treatment necessary for Mr. Wellwood," said Johnston.

October 27, 2011 article on Kimberly Proctor's tragic death that appeard in Vanity Fair

Murder by Text

Kim Proctor was no different than your ordinary teenage girl. Easily hurt by insults and just as easily swayed by compliments, she dwelled in an angsty purgatory familiar to most adolescents. But when Kim went from average kid to missing girl, her storyline took a tragic turn. David Kushner reports on the teenage nightmare that British Columbia police uncovered when they peeked behind the digital curtains of Kim’s supposed friends, Kruse Wellwood and Cameron Moffat.

snipped. . . . .

Kim asked Kruse to call her. He secretly patched Cam in to eavesdrop on the call. As Kruse and Kim talked, Kruse and Cam IM’d each other, reveling as their fantasy came to life. “I’m gonig to rip her nose ring out and burn it,” Kruse typed. “BURN HER FLESH.”

“Y not keep her bound and alive,” Cam suggested.

“That’s what I’m going to do but I need to get her stoned first and possibly seduce her.”

“Lol, try quickly.”

Later that morning, Kim was still in bed when her mother kissed her good-bye before going to work, and told her she loved her. They had reason to be happy. The day before, Kim had found out she had enough credits to graduate from high school, and she was looking forward to hopefully volunteering at the local wild-animal-rehabilitation center, Wild arc.

That day, Kim didn’t have classes, so her mother figured she’d sleep in. The plan was for her to babysit in the afternoon, then come home to start sewing her graduation dress. But Kim had one last thing to resolve first. After her mother had gone, she slipped on her black hoodie with the number 13 on the front, and headed for the Langford bus exchange.

Around 10:30 a.m., Kim got off at the exchange, where Kruse and Cam met her. Cam had just finished buying the camp fuel that the boys would later use to set Kim’s body on fire. The three of them chatted for a bit, and then went down to the small brown house on Happy Valley Road with a strand of lights strung along the trim.
