On April 16, 1992, the Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo kidnapped 15-year-old Kristen French from a church parking lot after Homolka lured her to their car, pretending to need directions. The couple brought French to their home and for several days videotaped their acts of humiliating, torturing and sexually abusing the teen. French tried hard to survive the attack but right before the couple left for Easter Sunday dinner with Homolka's family, they killed her. Her body was later found in a ditch.

For her participation in the killing, Homolka received a mere 10-year prison sentence after agreeing to testify against her husband, who was suspected as being The Scarborough Rapist.
