Wayne Boden (1968-1972) aka "the Vampire Rapist" was a 26-year old charming young man from Montreal who always left bite marks on the breasts of his 5 female victims. All victims had been found naked and strangled to death in their apartments, but there were no signs of any struggle.

Investigators looked into who the girls had been dating, and the name "Bill" kept coming up. Police even had a photograph of the suspect. He was caught when police staked out all blue Mercedes, which was the kind of car he drove. He was convicted of multiple life sentences through forensic odontology. The dentist was able to demonstrate 29 points of similarity between the bite marks on the breasts and Boden's teeth.

Wayne Clifford Boden

A dyed-in-the-flesh sexual sadist, obsessed with the desire to bite female breasts, Canadian Wayne Boden became known as the 'Vampire Rapist" after his chilling method of murder. Prowling the streets of Montreal, he singlehandedly staged a two-year reign of terror with attacks that drew outrage for their brutal, animal ferocity.

23 july 1968, Norma Villancourt, 21, was death in her apartment. She was raped and strangled, her breasts savaged with bite marks. Strangely, cops found no sign of a struggle. In fact, the M.E.s noted that she had died with a faint *smile* on her lips.

Months passed before, in 1969, the killer strangled Shirley Audette and dumped her lifeless body at an apartment complex in West Montreal. Though fully clothed, Shirley had been savagely raped -- and once again there were teeth marks found on her breasts. Questioning of a former boyfried revealed fears that she was "getting into something dangerous" with a new, unknown man she'd been seeing.

November 23: Marielle Archambault left her office with a young man she called "Bill". When she didn't show up for work the next morning, her employer went to see if she was OK. He found her on the floor of her living room, another victim of the twisted strangler, who had raped her, ripped off her bra and gnawed on her breasts. A crumpled picture found in the wreckage of her flat was readily identified as "Bill" -- yet the cops could stil not connect the smiling face with a real-life suspect.

January, 1970: Our hero strikes again, picking off Jean Wray, twenty-four, in her apartment. Wray's boyfriend stopped by and noticed the unlocked door. He went in to discover her naked corpse, breasts ravaged by bloody bite marks. Despite clear-cut evidence of violence, cops once again found no sign of a protracted struggle. Yet *again*, the victim looked "serene" in death.

The fear in Montreal had died down by 1971, when the Vampire rapist when back to work in Calgary, some 2,500 miles away. Elizabeth Pourteous, a teacher, turned up missing on May 18. Her body was soon discovered in her apartment, surrounded by the wreckage of a struggle. Raped, strangled, bite marks... all the signs that the kille rhad taken his show on the road. A broken cufflink was found near the corpse.

Two of Pourteous' colleagues at the school reported that she had been seen with a young man in a blue Mercedes on the night she perished. The car featured a bull-shaped decal, advertising beef, in the window. A friend of the victim also recalled that Liz was seeing a lad named -- Bill.

May 19: Patrolmen found Wayne Boden's car near the murder scene. He was arrested a half-hour later as he approached it. He told the cops he had moved from Montreal a year earlier, and admitted to seeing Elizabeth Pourteous the night she was killed. The final confirmation of Boden's guilt was delivered by an orthodontist, who compared a cast of his teeth to wounds on the victims. that earned Wayne a life sentence.

Returned to trial in Montreal, he now openly confessed to three of the related murders, oddly balking at the slaughter of Norma Villancourt. It was plenty, regardless, and the court slapped him with four more life terms -- hopefully sealing him away from society for good.

Boden, Wayne Clifford

A sexual sadist, obsessed with the desire to bite female breasts, Canadian Wayne Boden became infamous as the "Vampire Rapist," after his distinctive modus operandi. Stalking his victims in the neighborhood of Montreal, he sparked a two-year reign of terror with attacks that drew particular attention for their brute ferocity.

On July 23, 1968, Norma Villancourt, a 21-year-old teacher, was found dead in her Montreal apartment. She had been raped and strangled, her breasts savaged with bite marks, but police reported no evident signs of a struggle. In fact, a pathologist noted the victim had died with a passive, faint smile on her face.

The best part of a year elapsed before the killer struck again, in 1969, strangling Shirley Audette and dumping her corpse at the rear of an apartment complex in West Montreal. Though fully clothed when found, she had been raped, and their were bite marks on her breasts. A conversation with the victim's former boyfriend brought to light her fears that she was "getting into something dangerous" with someone she had started dating, but the suspect's name had not been mentioned.

On November 23, Marielle Archambault left her job at a Montreal jewelry store, departing with a young man she addressed as "Bill." When she did not appear for work the next morning, Marielle's employer went to see if she was ill. He found her on the floor of her apartment living room, the victim of a strangler who had raped her, ripping off her bra to gnaw her breasts. A crumpled photograph discovered in the wreckage of her flat was readily identified as that of her companion, "Bill," but homicide detectives still could not connect the smiling face with any real-life suspect.

On January 16, 1970, the killer struck again, picking off Jean Wray, 24, in her Montreal apartment. On arrival for a scheduled date, Wray's boyfriend found her door unlocked, her naked body on the sofa, bloody bite marks on her breasts. Despite the clear-cut evidence of violence, officers could find no sign of a protracted struggle; once again, the victim looked serene in death.

The fear in Montreal was little more than an unpleasant memory by 1971, when the Vampire Rapist made his next appearance some 2,500 miles away, in Calgary. His victim was Elizabeth Pourteous, a teacher, reported missing from work on May 18. Her apartment manager was called, and found her body on the bedroom floor, surrounded by wreckage of a struggle. Raped and strangled, she had also suffered the familiar bite marks on her breasts. A broken cufflink was discovered near the body.

Two colleagues at her school recalled that Pourteous had been seen with a young man, in a blue Mercedes, on the night she died. The car had featured a bull-shaped decal, advertising beef, in one window. A friend of the victim also informed police that Pourteous had recently started dating a new acquaintance -- named "Bill" -- who fit descriptions of the Vampire Rapist.

On May 19, patrolmen found the suspect car parked near the murder scene. Wayne Boden was arrested half an hour later, moving toward the car on foot. He told police that he had moved from Montreal a year earlier, admitted seeing Elizabeth Pourteous on the night she died, and identified the cufflink as his own.

The final confirmation was delivered by an orthodontist, who compared a cast of Boden's teeth with bite marks on the victim, earning Wayne a term of life imprisonment.

Returned to Montreal for trial, he openly confessed to three of the related murders, oddly balking in the case of Norma Villancourt. It was enough, regardless, and his four life sentences appeared to guarantee that Boden would be permanently out of circulation.

Michael Newton - An Encyclopedia of Modern Serial Killers - Hunting Humans

Wayne Clifford Boden (c. 1948 - March 27, 2006) was a Canadian serial killer and rapist active from 1968-1971. He earned the nickname "the Vampire Rapist" because he had the penchant of biting the breasts of his victims, a modus operandi that led to his conviction due to forensic odontological evidence, the first such conviction in North America and several years ahead of another serial killer, Ted Bundy.

Deaths in Montreal

Shirley Audette

On October 3, 1969, Shirley Audette was found dumped at the rear of an apartment complex in downtown Montreal. Although she was fully clothed, she had been raped and strangled, and showed savage bite marks on her breasts. There were no signs of bloody skin under the fingernails of the victim which led one biographer to theorize that she did not struggle against her assailant.

One of Audette's former boyfriends told the police that he believed that she got involved with a very dominant, attractive man because she was "getting into something dangerous"; she never mentioned the man's name. Based on this interview, police have surmised that the killer had an attraction for girls who wanted and accepted "rough sex."

Marielle Archambault

On November 23, a jewelry clerk named Marielle Archambault left work at closing time with a young man whom she introduced as "Bill" to her co-workers, who afterwards remarked that she seemed happy and entranced by the man.

When she did not report for work the following morning, Archambault's employer went to check on her in her apartment to see if she was ill. Together with her landlady, they discovered her naked body under a blanket on the living room floor. However, it appeared that she put up a struggle against her assailant, as shown by the wrecked state of her apartment. The killer ripped her pantyhose and bra, raped her, and left his telltale teeth marks on her breasts.

The police were able to find a crumpled photograph amid the wreckage of Archambaut's apartment, which was readily identified as the mysterious "Bill" by her co-workers. However, despite this apparent break, the police were not successful in connecting the photograph to any known suspect, even through a police sketch based on the picture was distributed for publication in the newspapers.

Jean Way

"Bill" waited two months before he struck again. On January 16, 1970, the boyfriend of Jean Way, 24, came to pick her up for a scheduled date at her apartment on Lincoln Street in downtown Montreal. When she did not answer the door, he decided to come back a little later.

Upon returning, he found the door unlocked and found her naked body on the sofa, her breasts chewed all over; it seemed that the killer had been in the apartment when Way's boyfriend Brian Caulfield was knocking at the door earlier that evening. An autopsy done by Dr. Jean-Paul Valcourt found two small fibers under the fingernails of her left hand, indicating that - contrary to legend - the victim had indeed struggled against her assailant. (Rapport Medico-Legal from the Institut de Medecine Legal et de la poliec scientifique 20 January 1970, page 4).

The resulting publicity from the murders put the city under a grip of fear. But it turned out that Jean Way's murder was the last in that city, as "Bill" had disappeared, only to turn up in another city 2500 miles to the west more than a year later.

Boden's last victim and arrest

Elizabeth Anne Porteous

In the city of Calgary, a 33-year old high school teacher named Elizabeth Anne Porteous did not report to work on the morning of May 18, 1971. Her apartment manager was called, and found her body on the bedroom floor. As with Marielle Achambaut, her apartment showed considerable signs of a struggle. Raped and strangled, her breasts were likewise mutilated with bite marks. Amid the wreckage, however, the police recovered a broken cufflink under the victim's body.

In their investigation of the murder, the police were able to find out from two of her colleagues that she was seen at a stoplight riding in a blue Mercedes on the night she died; the car was reported as having a distinctive advertising bull-shaped decal in the rear window. A friend of the victim also informed police that she had been recently dating a man named "Bill", described as a "flashy" dresser with neat, short hair. Clearly, there was a link between Elizabeth Porteous' death and the murders in Montreal.

The following day, on May 19, the blue Mercedes was spotted by patrolmen, parked near the murder scene. Boden, a former fashion model, was arrested half an hour later as he went to his car. He told the police that he moved from Montreal a year previous and admitted that he had been dating Porteous and was with her on the night of the murder. When the broken cufflink was presented to him, he admitted its ownership. However, he insisted that Porteous was fine when he left her that night.

The police in Calgary were in possession of a copy of the photograph recovered from Archambaut's apartment and, as Boden resembled the man in the picture, they held him for suspicion in murdering Porteous. They then turned their attention to the marks on the victim's breasts.

Bite mark evidence

The police turned to a local orthodontist, Gordon Swann, to prove that the marks on Porteous' breasts and neck were Boden's bite marks, with the intent to verify them as having been left by Boden. As there was nothing in Canadian forensic literature on bite mark evidence, Swann wrote to the FBI, hoping for any information on the matter. What he got in reply was a letter from then-director J. Edgar Hoover, who directed him to England, where he met a man who had dealt with 20 or 30 cases.

Eventually Swann was able to get the information he needed and based on a cast made of Boden's teeth he demonstrated 29 points of similarity between the bite marks in Elizabeth Porteous' body and Boden's teeth. This evidence was sufficient for the jury of Boden's trial to find him guilty of murder for which he was subsequently sentenced to life imprisonment.

Conviction, imprisonment, and death

Boden was returned to Montreal to face trial, where he confessed to three of the related murders, but denied involvement in the death of Norma Vaillancourt, a 21-year-old student killed on July 23, 1968. Boden had been suspected in that homicide as well but, in 1994, Raymond Sauve, was convicted of the crime and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Boden was sentenced to three additional life terms and he was sent to the Kingston Penitentiary, where he began serving his sentence on February 16, 1972.

In 1977, while Boden five years into his life sentence, American Express granted him a credit card, which he used while out on a day pass from Laval prison. He escaped and was recaptured 36 hours later while eating lunch in a restaurant in the Mount Royal Hotel in downtown Montreal. Three prison guards were disciplined and American Express conducted an internal investigation to find out how a prisoner serving a life sentence for murder managed to get a credit card.(Wall Street Journal, May 9, 1984 Page 1), (Toronto Globe and Mail p. 9, May 23, 1984)

Boden died at Kingston Regional Hospital on March 27, 2006 of skin cancer after being confined in hospital for six weeks.

'Vampire Killer' who bit breasts of victims dies in prison

March 30, 2006

KINGSTON, Canada - A serial killer who terrorized Canada with a string of slayings of young women in Montreal and Calgary more than 30 years ago has died in prison.

Wayne Boden, whose penchant for biting the breasts of his victims earned him the nickname the "Vampire Killer," died in hospital earlier this week at Kingston Penitentiary.

Corrections Canada attributed Boden's death to "natural causes" and said funeral arrangements were still being made.

Boden was locked up in 1972 after four women in Montreal were found raped and strangled, all with bite marks on their breasts, between 1968 and 1970.

He confessed to three of the killings after a teacher in Calgary was found dead in 1971.

Boden, who was in his late 50s, had been ill and was transferred to Kingston from his home institution of Bath about six weeks ago.

On July 23, 1968, Norma Villancourt, a 21-year-old teacher, was found dead in her Montreal apartment, having been raped and strangled, and with bite marks on her breasts.

Victims Shirley Audette, 20, Marielle Archambault, 20, and Jean Wray, 24, followed. All were raped and murdered and found with bite marks.

Then, in 1971, teacher Elizabeth Pourteous, 33, vanished in Calgary and she was also found raped and strangled. A cufflink was found near her body.

Boden, a travelling salesman, was arrested shortly afterward. He told police that he had moved from Montreal a year earlier, admitted seeing Pourteous on the night she died, and said the cufflink was his.

A forensic orthodontist also matched Boden's teeth with bite marks on the victim, the first time such evidence had been allowed in a Canadian trial to identify an accused.

Boden later made headlines in 1984 while on a "humanitarian" day pass from the maximum-security Laval Correctional Centre. He escaped from a guard after asking to use the washroom while eating in a Montreal hotel.
