VANCOUVER - Convicted child killer Clifford Olson is reportedly dying of cancer.
Vancouver radio station CKNW reports that the mother of one of Olson's 11 victims says the infamous murderer has terminal cancer.
Sharon Rosenfeldt says she was informed by Corrections Canada that the 71-year-old Olson may have just days to live.
CKNW says Rosenfeldt has been told that Olson's cancer has spread through his body, and that he has been moved from the Quebec prison where he was serving his life sentence to a hospital in Laval, Que.
Olson was handed 11 concurrent life terms in 1982 after pleading guilty to the slayings that occurred in southern B.C. in 1981.
The admission followed a cash-for-bodies deal that paid Olson $100,000 to lead police to the remains of his young victims.
Sixteen-year-old Daryn Johnsrude, one of Olson's first victims, was Rosenfeldt's son.
