WATCH: Kimberly Proctor’s father says he feels betrayed by the justice system as one of her killers applies for day parole. This story contains details that some may find disturbing. Discretion is advised.
Fred Proctor has written a graphic letter hoping if people are outraged by the details of his daughter Kimberly Proctor’s brutal rape and murder, they will demand tougher sentences.
In it Proctor writes “the Coroner found that Kim had been raped, her genitals were mutilated, foreign objects were found in her vagina, underwear was stuffed in her mouth and taped shut. She was bound and thrown in a deep freezer still alive and eventually succumbed to asphyxiation.”
Kruse Wellwood and Cameron Moffat, who were 16 and 17 at the time, were sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 10 years. But the family says it’s now been notified that Wellwood has applied for day parole and will have a hearing in August.
Proctor writes “this pain really never will go away, we learn somehow to live with it, but when so-called Canadian justice lets this happen the healing stops.”
And the family worries this is only the beginning.
“Nine years is a short amount of time definitely and for us to go through it opened up a lot of wounds, and that emotional feeling, and it brought everything back,” said Kimberly’s aunt Jo-Anne Landolt.
“We’re talking about two offenders, they’re both young, so we could be going through this every year until either they are deceased or they are released,” she said.
The National Parole Board says both Wellwood and Moffat have been eligible for day parole since June 2018 and will be eligible for full parole by June 2020.
