B.C. woman set on fire in supposed pagan ritual was social worker on Schoenborn file
KAMLOOPS, B.C. — A B.C. woman who died this week after being found ablaze in Riverside Park was a former social worker in Merritt who went on long-term disability after three children in her case-management file were murdered by their father.
Heather Arlene Carr was discovered on fire by emergency responders just after 2 a.m. on Tuesday.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze but the 40-year-old died in hospital a few hours later.
Police initially suspected suicide, but BC Coroners Service investigators believe the death was accidental. According to posts on Facebook, Carr’s death was the result of a pagan ritual gone wrong.
Carr, a Thompson Rivers University graduate, was a social worker in Merritt. She had the file for Allan Schoenborn’s three children: Kaitlynne, Cordon and Max.
Schoenborn killed the three children in April 2008 inside the Merritt home they shared with their mother, Darcie Clark.
Carr went on stress leave after the murders and was later placed on long-term disability.
In 2010, Schoenborn was found not criminally responsible for the killings by way of a mental disorder. He remains in psychiatric custody in Port Coquitlam.
Carr was active among Wiccan groups on social media, operating a Facebook group called Being Pagan Out of the Broom Closet.
A post on that page said Carr died as a result of “severe burns suffered in a ritual gone horrifically wrong.”
The B.C. Coroners Service and the RCMP continue to investigate.
