Clifford Olson denied parole

Serial killer says he will no longer apply for release

The National Parole Board has rejected serial killer Clifford Olson’s application for parole, which Olson said would be his final attempt at securing his release from prison. “This is the last one,” Olson said of his application, “never again.” Olson was sentenced to 11 concurrent life sentences for the murders of eight girls and three boys in the early 1980s. This was Olson’s first bid for parole since 2006, when he was deemed a “clear and present danger” to the public who would likely murder again.
