  • November 24th, 2009

    This was the home of Corporal Marie France Comeau, who was murdered by the notorious Canadian killer, Colonel Russell Williams. Prior to the murder, Williams was responsible for dozens of sexually-motivated home invasions, that escalated from stealing female undergarments, to forcible confinement and assault. Williams had broken into Comeau’s home once before when she wasn’t home. Williams met Comeau on a military flight and, as her commander, was able to access her personal information. Williams spent over an hour in the home on the first night, taking photos of himself wearing her undergarments. On November 25, 2009, Williams returned to the home and, again, broke in through a basement window. However, this time, Comeau was home. He hid in the basement, waiting for her to go to sleep, but was found when Comeau went looking for one of her cats in the basement, who was sitting staring at Williams. Williams attacked Comeau with a flashlight, and confined her. He proceeded to take photos and videos while he assaulted her in the basement and bedroom. Comeau, at several points, tried to escape, but was unsuccessful. Williams ultimately suffocated her to death by placing duct tape over her mouth and nose. Comeau’s body was later discovered by her boyfriend, when she failed to show up for a date. It wasn’t until Williams was suspected in the murder of another woman, Jessica Lloyd (27), that he confessed to Comeau’s murder. Williams was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and numerous other charges related to assault, forcible confinement, and breaking and entering. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Stay out of the Basement of These Homes

Shhh! What’s that sound – it’s coming from the basement. You open the door a smidge and peer into the darkness. Is something lurking?  Are there secrets down below? You slowly make your descent, down the creaking staircase. Something catches your eye, you hear rustling, and you notice movement in the corner. You brace yourself and prepare for the worst. Maybe you should have stayed upstairs.  Here are a few homes where you should not go down to the basement.
