The Many Faces of Terri-Lynne McClintic




Convicted child killer Terri-Lynne McClintic painted a grim portrait of her own childhood years while testifying against Michael Rafferty, her ex-lover and partner in the murder of Victoria Elizabeth Stafford.

McClintic told the packed court that her birth mother was a stripper who gave her away to another woman -- also a stripper -- to be raised. She claimed that she suffered a separated shoulder resulting from abuse when she was just a baby. At the tender age of eight, Terri-Lynne began experimenting with a variety of drugs; ironically, the same age that Tori Stafford was when she was brutally murdered by McClintic and Rafferty.

McClintic amassed a lengthy criminal record, with numerous assault and robbery convictions. She admitted that she had been using and dealing drugs -- OxyContin, mostly -- at the time Stafford was killed.

If all of this is true, it stands in stark contrast with the background story presented by perhaps the most notorious woman in serial killer history: Karla Homolka. McClintic has often been compared to Homolka with respect to the fact that she has admitted to luring an underage victim on behalf of her paedophile lover, but in this author's estimation, the similarities end there.

The only real darkness radiating from the Homolka household emanated from Karla herself. She was raised in a stable, supportive family, and rose to considerable popularity among her contemporaries. The eldest of three beautiful, blonde daughters, Karla was smart as a whip and an excellent student. She could have aspired to anything she desired; she desired Paul Kenneth Bernardo.

In the case of Terri-Lynne McClintic: born of a stripper, raised by a stripper, and lost to drug addiction before she had even reached puberty. By no means am I suggesting that her back story excuses what she did to little Tori Stafford, but I feel that it at least offers some explanation as to why.

After the murder, McClintic's opinion of herself was so low that she actually offered to take 100% of the blame for the horrific things that she and Rafferty had done together:

"I told him that I would take the fall for everything, that I would say it is all me, that he had more to lose than I did, because I was just an 18-year-old junkie anyways."
