70s ‘Vampire Killer’ dies
Convicted of horrific sex slayings in Montreal and Calgary


CALGARY — The serial killer who terrorized the nation with the sex slayings of women in Montreal and Calgary more than 30 years ago is dead.

Wayne Boden, nicknamed the Vampire Killer because he had a penchant for biting the breasts of his victims, a practice that helped lead to his conviction, died in Kingston Penitentiary this week.

Correctional Service Canada attributed Boden’s death to “natural causes” and said funeral arrangements were still being made. Boden was believed to be in his late 50s.

He was locked up in 1972 after four women in Montreal were raped and strangled between 1968 and 1970.

He confessed to three of the killings after Calgary teacher Elizabeth Porteous was found raped and strangled in 1971.
