There are two things that have been noted in the news recently about London, Ontario, that are intriguing. Because of the time lapse between the two, however, I doubt if they are related.
- London was at one time the serial murder capital of the world.
This: "...the city became the "serial killer capital of the world" from 1959 to 1984, according to Michael Arntfield, a criminology professor at the University of Western Ontario. With only a population of roughly 200,000 people at the time, the city may have had as many as six serial killers, more per capita than everywhere else on the planet."
- London had the highest percentage of its population as members of Ashley Madison. Roughly 10.5% of Londoners were members of the website, higher than for any other major city in Canada (where roughly 6.6% of the apopulation were members). [Note that these numbers are percentages of the entire population; percentages of the adult population would be even higher!]
