Convicted serial killer Clifford Olson is shown in a 1995 photo. Olson, the self-proclaimed “beast of British Columbia” had served nearly 30 years in jail for torturing, sexually assaulting and murdering eight girls and three boys around B.C.’s Lower Mainland in the early 1980s.

After years of anguish and weeks of uncertainty for his victims’ families, Clifford Olson, one of Canada’s worst serial killers, died Friday of cancer in a Quebec prison. He was 71 years old.

Terry Bizeau, the mother of Terri Lyn Carson, who was murdered by Olson when she was 15 years old, said she received a call from Corrections Canada at around 12:30 Pacific time, and knew what it was about before picking up the phone.

“When [the Corrections spokesperson] told me who she was, I knew it anyway,” Bizeau said. “I asked if he’s dead and she said yes. I yelled out that he was dead and I started crying.”

“Mr. Olson officially died at 15:41 p.m.,” said Geneviève Guilbault with the Quebec coroner’s bureau. “The coroner in Quebec has to make an investigation every time a prisoner dies, so his body was transported to our morgue in Montreal.”

Olson’s death ignited a stream of emotions from his victims’ families, who were informed by Corrections Canada last weekend that the killer had just days to live.

“How can you put feelings into words,” Bizeau said. “All I feel right now is that it’s finally over. Justice has finally been done. I hope that whatever they do, if they bury him or cremate him, I hope they cremate him and flush his ashes in the toilet.

I met him damned.gif didn't know who he was at the time, said he was a vaccum cleaner salesman said his name was Olson. I was about 16 and at my sister's place, didn't let him in. Later I learned he had been posing as a vacuum cleaner salesman. We have another Olson in BC now, he's still loose and goes after mainly native girls hitch hiking. sad2.gif

Thanks GH hug.gif I can't say for certain it was him, but (and I was alone) this salesman stops by said his name was Olson. Didn't let him in, they caught him soon after that and it came out he'd been posing as a vacuum cleaner salesman. dunno.gif
