Convicted killer signs up for pen-pals

Several men with high-profile murder convictions have posted profiles on a Canadian inmate pen-pal website, including a Langley man.

The Province compiled a list of imates who committed homicides or homicide-related crimes in B.C. and have profiles on Canadian Inmates Connect, a site established by an Ontario woman in January 2012 to “help isolated inmates reconnect to the outside world and work toward a better life.”

One of those is Davey Mato Butorac, from Aldergrove.

Convicted of: Second-degree murder From his profile: “I am very creative and I like music, drawing and lifting weights. I like to stay in shape and eat healthy. I can be shy at times.”

Background: In April, a jury found Butorac guilty of second degree murder in connection with the death of Sheryl Lynn Koroll in Langley in 2007. It was his second trial on the charge. He is awaiting a retrial in the murder of Gwendolyn Lawton and a first trial in the murder of Margaret Redford.
