Survivor of serial killer Elizabeth Wettlaufer makes surprise … – CBC.ca

The woman who once told a courtroom she was too afraid to go anywhere after surviving an insulin overdose delivered by serial killer Elizabeth Wettlaufer, made a surprise appearance on Tuesday at participation hearings for the upcoming inquiry into the former nurse’s actions. 

Wettlaufer is currently serving a life sentence for the murders of eight seniors in her care and the attempted murders of four others over a seven-year period across southwestern Ontario from 2007 to 2014.

Beverly Bertram, who was 68 at the time and receiving home care, described in her victim impact statement to a Woodstock, Ont., court in June that she felt immense pain, doubled over and wondered why no one would help after she was administered a massive dose of insulin by Wettlaufer.
