Logan Valentini is the sister of Canadian serial killer Karla Homolka. She was born in 1971 in St Catherines as Lori Homolka but later changed her name to avoid being associated with her killer sister. Logan’s parents were Karel Homolka and Dorothy Homolka; her father was a salesman, while her mother worked in the healthcare sector.
Logan has two siblings: her killer sister, Karla Homolka, and her younger sister, Tammy Homolka. Her sister Tammy was murdered in 1990 at the age of 16 by her sister.
Early Life and Education
Logan Valentini grew up in a small town in St Catherines, and given that her parents had well-paying jobs, life was not tough. Her parents could attend to all her needs, including food and other essentials. When Logan came of age, she started attending a local school; her two sisters often accompanied her.
Why Did Logan Valentini Change Her Name?
In the 1990s, Karla Homolka, Logan’s sister, was actively involved in the murders of school girls; she could collaborate with her husband Bernardo to kidnap, videotape, rape, and even sometimes murder innocent school girls. To make it worse, Karla killed her younger sister Tammy; this made it hard to walk around with the name Homolka as your surname. All these issues made Logan change her name from Lori; it would be tough for her to navigate through life if the name Homolka were part of her as it was associated with her killer sister Karla.
Regarding her love life, Logan Valentini is currently married to Dominic Valentini; the two have not mentioned how they met or how long they have been together, but their union has lasted several years. Logan is a mother to three kids, namely Jenna, Caden, and Lucas. Her husband loves her and her kids and often boosts about his family on social media.
Logan’s husband is a humble guy who studied at Brock University; he is employed and uses his earnings to provide for his family’s needs.
The Murder of Her Sister Tammy
Tammy’s death came as a shock to her family, given that her sister killed her. When Paul Bernardo started dating Karla, she noticed that he had a liking for her younger sister. After seeing this, Logan Valentini’s sister took it upon herself to bring Tammy to her husband. She felt she would lose him if Bernardo went after her sister.
Fast forward to Christmas Eve, Logan’s sister drugged Tammy; she spiked her food with sedatives, and once everyone in the house had gone to sleep, she carried her and took her to the basement. In the basement, Karla and her husband raped and videotaped Tammy before she choked on her vomit to death. Tammy’s death was declared accidental, but Logan’s sister had a hand in her death.
Logan Valentini is media-shy and does not like being in the spotlight; she only made a public appearance in 2012 when she was accused of being involved in a murder, which, in the end, turned out that she was innocent. Logan is not active on social media platforms, but her husband is, and he sometimes shares his family pictures on the internet.
