Abduction and Murder
Just one month before her 16th birthday as she walked home from Holy Cross Secondary School, a Catholic school in St. Catharines, Ontario for the Easter break weekend, she was approached at the entrance the Grace Lutheran church parking lot by serial killers Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo under the pretense of needing directions. While Kristen assisted Homolka with map directions, Bernardo attacked her from behind and forced her into the car at knife point. It was Thursday, April 16, 1992 and her kidnapping was seen by several eyewitnesses. During her three days of captivity the depraved couple videotaped themselves torturing and subjecting the 15 year old to sexual humiliation and degradation while forcing her to drink large amounts of alcohol before murdering her on April 19, 1992. Her naked body was found in a ditch several kilometres away on No. 1 Sideroad in north Burlington on April 30, 1992, approximately one mile from the gravesite of Leslie Mahaffy, another of Bernardo and Homolka's murder victims.
