The burning body firefighters discovered Wednesday in a secluded field near train tracks in the city’s Collinwood neighborhood was missing its head, hands and feet, according to three law-enforcement sources.

Cleveland police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia would not say what body parts were missing. The dismembered body was burned to such a degree that investigators cannot identify its gender, Ciaccia said.

The story of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka is a familiar one to many true crime aficionados (particularly Canadians like myself), but it’s my closest brush with murder – at least that I am aware of!

Paul Bernardo was called the Scarborough Rapist, the Schoolgirl Killer, and he and Karla Homolka were dubbed the “Ken & Barbie Killers” because of their unsuspecting appearance.

Their victims included Leslie Mahaffy, Kristen French, and Karla’s own younger sister Tammy.
