A court appearance is scheduled Friday for the 49-year-old woman accused of killing eight elderly nursing home residents in London and Woodstock.
Elizabeth Wettlaufer faces first degree murder charges in connection to the deaths, which occurred between 2007 and 2014
The former registered nurse is being represented by defense lawyer Brad Burgess, who requested further disclosure during her previous appearance on November 2nd.
Police have said a drug was given to the alleged victims but they won’t reveal what it was.
At a police media conference on October 25th in Woodstock, officials wouldn’t offer any details about the nature of the tip they received–or the tipster–except that it came in on Sept. 29.
The Canadian Press cites a police source as saying that it was officials from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) who tipped off Toronto police that Wettlaufer had provided information that caused them “concern.”
Wettlaufer posted on her Facebook page about challenges with substance abuse. A neighbour of hers told reporters that she had recently been in rehab.
After receiving the complaint, Toronto police officers notified the Ontario Provincial Police, as well as the departments in London and Woodstock.
Wettlaufer resigned as a registered nurse the day after Police received the tip.
Wettlaufer’s court appearance in Woodstock via video link from jail is scheduled for 9a.m. Friday. AM980 will have a reporter there.
