Alcoholics Anonymous Member Oliver Killian and serial bigamist, admitted to having married 20 women. His favorite stomping grounds was at his Alcoholics Anonymous meetings were he apparently was quite the 13 stepper. He married AA Member Teresa Steele, who died of an overdose after he ran up her credit cards. Real scumbag. Another wife committed suicide.
Beware- AA is dangerous for your health!
TORONTO – The aging Irish Casanova who’s boasted of illegally wedding some 20 brides is finally going to jail for bigamy.
After pleading guilty, the hardly contrite Oliver Killeen addressed the judge with not a word of apology to Barbara Daniels or the string of other vulnerable women he has duped at the altar. “I regret the mess I find myself in,” was all the 75-year-old Lothario told Ontario Court of Justice John Moore.
Killeen faced a maximum penalty of five years but the judge agreed to a joint submission of a paltry 90-day sentence to be served on weekends. And with that, handcuffs were slapped on the international fraud artist and the silver-haired Romeo, dressed as dapper as ever in a tan leather jacket, was sent off to be processed.
But there were real victims here: Teresa Steele met Killeen at an AA meeting — one of his favourite stomping grounds — and married him at her Pickering home before he allegedly ran up her credit cards. She later died of a drug overdose. Another of his wives committed suicide. A Toronto school vice-principal would claim he conned her out of $200,000. Margaret Curtain of England had a child with Killeen and believed he had a PhD in psychology from a Toronto university. And then there was Gina Lascuola, his latest known bride, a Missouri woman with a severely disabled child who fell for him after he wooed her on a Catholic singles website.
