The allure of the real bad boy
The story is becoming more common in B.C. where wives and girlfriends of men with criminal histories getting caught in the middle of their activities and end up killed or terribly injured.
On Monday night in West Kelowna, someone killed 33 year-old Jeremy Snow and his girlfirend 30 year-oldTiffany Goruk.
Snow recently spent four years in prison in the U-S and Canada for smuggling drugs across the border with helicopters.
Goruk was the mother of two young boys and had no criminal history or record of violence. So why was she there and why are some women attracted to men with a criminal background.
Geri Bemister calls herself a former "gang girlfriend" and knows first hand why women get involved with criminally active men.
Bemister is now a professor of criminology at Vancouver Island University and North Island College.
