    Police theory that predator is targeting prostitutes doesn’t surprise one victim’s sister
    December 13, 2011 9:05 PM

    respectfully snipped by me - doing summary, trying not to go over the 10% allowed.

    Ottawa sex workers fear predator

    Co-dependence on drugs and prostitution leaves sex workers addicted to toxic lifestyle

    CBC News

    "Police want info on 'bad dates'

    Ottawa Police have encouraged prostitutes to report their "bad dates" directly to police officers, but many prostitutes do not trust the police.

    A lack of trust in others started long ago for Angie, who was first adopted from India when she was a child. But Angie entered a group home when she was 12 and then started living on the streets when she was 15."

    Twelve sex-related charges — including one count of kidnapping and four counts of unlawful confinement — have been laid against Shalendra Kumar Sharma, 43, of Surrey in connection with four cases

    OTTAWA -- Cops once considered convicted murderer Russell Williams a suspect in the series of prostitute murders currently under investigation here.

    At least six street-level sex workers have been murdered in Ottawa in the past 21 years. Five deaths are being investigated by Ottawa police. OPP have already solved a sixth death.

    “We looked at him upside down and round and round,” Insp. John Maxwell said of Williams, the disgraced Canadian Forces colonel and former CFB Trenton commander who was convicted of killing two women. Williams was one of several persons of interest investigators considered"

    "“First, it was shocking, tears were flowing like crazy,” said Cindy Monday night in an interview with APTN. “I don’t even know there is a word out there to describe how I was feeling. They got the guy. They solved it. I was happy.”

    The family immediately wanted answers on who the man is and why he did it, but police said those answers would come.

    “I wanted answers on why he did it. How did you know my sister, how did you approach my sister and why?” said Cindy.

    Police said they didn’t have motive yet and didn’t know how the suspect knew Pamela.

    APTN held off on publishing at the request of the family who said police still needed to make the arrest.

    The suspect was supposed to be arrested Tuesday but police told the family “paper work” pushed it to Wednesday."

    "Leduc, who sometimes uses the handle “evilmarky” online, is an active Facebook user whose frequent posts on friends’ walls are littered with sexual innuendo. He has also posted photos and quotes from various websites, such as “Dirty White Boy.”

    On Oct. 14, three of his friends “liked” a photo that said, “Some hot, rough sex and no thinking would be nice right now.”

    Pictures of bikini-clad young women appeared daily on his wall with titles such as “two cuties posing by the pool.”

    The father of two also shares pictures of his cat and inspirational quotes such as “Men are the ones who are given strength by God to protect women. So, if you hurt a woman, you are not a man!”

    http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local...-set-for-marc-leduc-in-slaying-of-sex-workers

    A preliminary hearing has been set for the fall for the Ottawa man accused of killing two sex trade workers and committing a violent sexual assault in the city’s west end.

    Marc Leduc, 57, was charged with first-degree murder in the 2011 slaying of Leeanne Lawson and the 2008 killing of Pamela Kosmack.

    Leduc was arrested for the homicides in February 2013. He was already in custody at the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre awaiting trial for a violent sexual assault on Nov. 2, 2012.

    Noting here another attack on a sex worker, maybe more than one perp. has been operating in the area?

    "The suspect is described as a white, English-speaking man, about 25 to 30 years old, standing five feet nine inches tall with a thin build and very short, light brown hair in a brush cut.

    He was driving a newer model dark grey four-door sedan or a beige coloured pick-up truck,
    police said, adding that investigators have no further details."

    Missed this article detailing Leduc's attack on a college student and wondering if there are more victims yet to be discovered?

    Graphic.
    http://news.nationalpost.com/news/c...-woman-recalls-attacker-now-accused-of-murder

    "The scars on her hands serve as a constant reminder of the day she came face to face with Marc Leduc &#8212; the man now accused of killing two Ottawa women &#8212; and survived.

    The woman, then 19, was just waking up on the morning of Nov. 1, 2012, when she heard Leduc&#8217;s heavy breathing as he came through her bedroom door."
