Langley killer looking for love

Aldergrove's Davey Butorac has posted his profile posted on same Canadian prison matchmaking site as infamous murderer, Luka Magnotta

Convicted killer Davey Butorac of Aldergrove

Convicted murderer Davey Butorac is looking for love.

The 36-year-old Aldergrove man, who was convicted in the murder of Langley City prostitute Sheryl Korrall, and is facing trials in the killings of two other women, has posted his profile on the dating website “Canadian Inmates Connect.”

Butorac’s profile indicates that he has been convicted of second degree murder and that his expected release date is undetermined.

It does not specify that he was convicted of killing a woman.

Butorac is set to go to trial, charged with second degree murder in the deaths of Aldergrove mother, Margaret Redford, and Abbotsford prostitute, Gwendolyn Lawton.

Butorac was originally found guilty of second-degree murder for killing Lawton, 46, and Korroll, 50, but appealed and won new trials for both.

In April, he was found guilty again by a jury of his peers for killing Korroll. He will be sentenced in September.

He was scheduled to be back in court in connection to the other two women’s deaths, on July 2 to fix a date for trial.

His dating profile reads that he likes music, drawing, talking on the phone and lifting weights.

He is looking for a ‘special girl’ to share life with.

The Canadian Inmates Connect site garnered attention last week when it was discovered that Luka Rocco Magnotta, who made headlines worldwide for the grisly killing and dismemberment of a university student in Montreal in 2012, had posted a profile.

Magnotta, who is being held at a Quebec prison, says he’s looking for his “prince charming,” for a long-term, committed relationship.

Surrey Six killer Matt Johnston is also looking for love on the dating website. Johnston, who is serving his time in Quebec, says he is an honest person and ‘never turns his back on a friend.’

The inmate dating website was started by a Canadian woman in 2013. It isn’t affiliated with Corrections Canada, however, the federal agency doesn’t scrutinize the accuracy of the inmates’ profiles or limit their ability to meet new women through the site.

The website has been criticized as being offensive to victims of crime.

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney has asked that Correctional Service Canada ensure dangerous and violent criminals aren’t able to further exploit individuals.

There is at least one man on the site who is a convicted rapist, but most are murderers.

Through the site, the inmates can receive letters and pictures from women and, if they want, they can get married in the jail.

Most recently, convicted criminals, including men convicted of murder and assault in Langley, have started their own Facebook profiles while in prison.

The inmates are able to interact with friends through Facebook.  Corrections said that federal inmates do not have access to the Internet.
