A lawyer spearheading a lawsuit over Elizabeth Wettlaufer’s alleged murders says he’s been contacted by two families other than those of her eight alleged victims.

Wettlaufer is charged with eight counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of eight elderly residents.

Seven of the residents lived at the Caressant Care home in Woodstock, and the eighth at Meadow Park in London. Their deaths occurred between 2007 and 2014.

It is alleged that Wettlaufer, who worked as a nurse at both facilities, killed the residents by administering them drugs.

Since the charges against Wettlaufer came to light, a civil lawsuit has been launched.

The London-based lawyer handling that lawsuit says he has also been contacted by two other families who say they have suspicions about how their relatives died.

According to the OPP, Wettlaufer’s case remains an “active investigation.”

“We continue to follow up on numerous leads that have been and continue to be provided to the investigative unit,” said Sgt. David Rektor.

Wettlaufer made a brief court appearance Thursday in Woodstock.

She was remanded back into custody, with her next court date set for Jan. 6.
