Update: January 10, 2012 @ 7:00 PM
I have chosen to revise portions of this post after much careful consideration.
It is suggested in Bourque's parole order that she may attempt to access the Internet (which she is forbidden to do), and also that she is known to have an interest in violent criminals and serial killers. If this is true, and she does access the Internet -- in violation of her conditions -- it would seem likely that she may decide to 'Google' herself.
Kayla, if there is even the most remote chance that you are reading this...
This doesn't have to end in ruin. All eyes are on you now, you won't get away with anything. Life has so much to offer an intelligent (so I've read) and beautiful (so I've seen) girl such as yourself.
Life is precious, and freedom is priceless. Personally, I wouldn't give mine up for anything.
Now, here's the (mostly) original post:
Former Prince George, British Columbia resident Kayla Bourque has been released on probation in Vancouver following a seven-month incarceration in connection with the brutal slaying of her family pets. The 23 year old woman was taken into custody via the Mental Health Act after she confessed to a fellow criminology student at Simon Fraser University her fondness for torturing animals and murder fantasies.
During the execution of a search warrant at her residence, police found video evidence of her torturing and killing the family dog and cat, along with a suspected "kill kit" containing a knife, razor blade, mask, hypodermic needle, and three large garbage bags. Psychologists who met with Kayla in jail describe her as a sexual sadist and narcissist with an anti-social personality disorder and sociopathic tendencies with a high risk of re-offending.
She is reported to have admitted that she planned on killing someone by the time she turned 40, and that she had been studying criminology in order to "get away with something" someday. She said that she had thought about killing on numerous occasions, including a homeless person and a drunken fellow SFU student.
Kayla's parents, who adopted her from a Romanian orphanage when she was only 8 months old, have made it clear they do not want the convicted criminal to return home, fearing her escalating violent behaviour. No shit!
So... what happens now? Given that she has served her sentence pertaining to the animal cruelty and weapons charges, she cannot be detained further. Her exhaustive three-year probation order contains nearly 50 restrictions and is set to be reviewed in three months.
The British Columbia Ministry of Justice took the rare step of issuing a public warning upon Kayla's release:
Twenty-three-year-old Kayla Bourque has an escalating criminal history. She has offended violently against both people and animals and is considered high risk to re-offend.
She has been convicted of causing unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to animals, wilfully and without lawful excuse killing animals and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
Bourque is described as 5”4’ tall and 130 pounds. She is slender with brown eyes, and black hair.
She plans on living in Vancouver.
Bourque is subject to close monitoring by authorities and 46 court-ordered conditions including:
- Not to leave residence between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. daily seven days a week except: (a) for the purposes of obtaining emergency medical treatment; and (b) and except with the prior written permission of a Probation Officer.
- Not to associate with any person under the age of 18.
- Not to attend any public school, parks, playgrounds, or public swimming pools, or areas adjacent to the swimming pools or any other locations where it can reasonably be expected that persons under the age of 18 are likely to be present
- Not to possess any computer or device or telecommunication device capable of accessing the internet.
- Not to access to any social networking sites.
- Attend, participate in, and complete the BC Corrections Branch core programs.
- Attend and participate in psychiatric/psychological assessments, counselling or educational programming as may be directed and to the satisfaction of a Probation Officer.
- Immediately advise Probation Officer of any close, intimate, familiar, or familial relationships and refrain from continuing such a relationship until that person has been advised of criminal record and background in the presence of a Probation Officer.
- Not to engage in any areas of study, employment, or volunteer work involving contact with any animals or any vulnerable person which includes but is not limited to the elderly, person under the age of 18, the infirmed, or persons with physical or mental disabilities.
- Not to attend any college or university or enrol in any post secondary courses
- Not to possess any weapons as defined in the Criminal Code of Canada including firearms, imitation firearms, ammunition, crossbows, or explosive substance, or any related authorization, licenses, permits, or registration certificates in relation to those.
- Not to possess any knives or other bladed instruments except for the immediate preparation and consumption of food, for the actual course of lawful employment and only at the sites of such employment.
- Prohibited from owning, having custody or control of, or residing in any premises where animals or birds are present.
- Not to attend any campus or property occupied by Simon Fraser University including any adjacent parking lots or student residences.
If anyone sees her in violation of any of the above conditions, you are asked to call your local police agency.
Ironically, nobody will be warned when Runaway Devil is released back into the herd, although she was convicted of three counts of manslaughter. Because she was under age at the time of her arrest and conviction, her identity is (and shall remain) protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
