Inquest to be held following Borutski verdict

OTTAWA – Earlier this week Basil Borutski was found guilty of three charges of murder – two in the first degree – in relation to the violent death of three Ottawa Valley women in 2015.

Yesterday (Aug. 28) it was announced an inquest will be held into the deaths of Carol Culleton, Anastasia Kuzyk and Nathalie Warmerdam during the one-day rampage in September 2015. All three were found dead in their homes in Hastings and Renfrew counties after an encounter with a man who was known to them.

Borutski was sentenced to life in prison, with no chance of parole for 70 years, for killing the three women.

Dr. David Cameron, the regional supervising coroner for inquests, says the inquiry will examine the circumstances surrounding their deaths. The jury may make recommendations aimed at preventing further deaths due to similar circumstances following the inquest.
