TORONTO — Canadian authorities are looking into unsolved murder and sexual assault cases after charging the commander of Canada's largest Air Force base with the murder of two women and the sexual assault of two others.
Col. Russell Williams was arrested Sunday and charged with the murder of two women, including a soldier who was under his command. Williams was once an elite pilot who flew prime ministers.
News of the charges rocked the military.
Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kristine Rae said the core of the investigation is still geared toward the four cases. However, she said investigators are looking at other areas where he has been posted and other crimes that have gone unsolved to see if there are any similarities.
