No day parole for teen killer

One of two young men who raped and murdered a teen on Vancouver Island in 2010 has been denied day parole, reports CTV News

Kruse Wellwood, now 25, was seeking day parole and escorted absences from the Mission prison where he is currently held. 

He was 16 years old when he and Cameron Moffat, 17 at the time, murdered 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor in March 2010. 

Proctor was lured to a home, raped, tortured and mutilated. She died of asphyxiation. The pair later lit her remains on fire at a local trail.

The two teens pleaded guilty and were sentenced to life in prison in 2011 with no chance of full parole for a decade.

The parole board found that Wellwood still poses a risk and has “ongoing psychopathic traits”.

The victim’s father, Fred Proctor, described the possibility of parole looming over them like a monkey on their backs. 

“You’re healing, you’re getting on with life, you still think about this every day, but this just drags so much more of it out,” he told CTV News.

“People like this should just be locked up permanently. Key thrown away.”

New details emerged during the parole hearing, which revealed the two killers met around age 11. Wellwood said Moffat introduced him to violent pornography.

Wellwood’s father, Robert Dezwaan, was convicted of the second-degree murder death of 16-year-old Cherish Oppenheim in 2001.

The two teens would share violent fantasies as young as 11 and 12, building up to the murder of Proctor years later.

“It came out of a throwaway fantasy,” Wellwood told the parole board, also referring to his rape fantasy as a “passing thought”.

“The novelty was what made it interesting,” he said.
