Who Is Robert Pickton? (Pig Killer)
« on: February 03, 2009, 07:04:43 AM »

CityNews.ca Staff
It's an unfortunate by-product of nearly every high profile murder trial - the attention gets showered on the accused, while the victims are often shunted into the background.

It's certainly understandable in the case of 56-year-old Robert William Pickton. The man who could be Canada's worst serial killer is accused in 26 murders - and those were only the cases investigators were able to substantiate legally.

So who is this otherwise obscure little man who ran a remote pig farm in Port Coquitlam, B.C.?

His family has a long history in the city, a working class town east of Vancouver. His grandfather settled there in the early 1900s and bought farmland, which his son Leonard subsequently inherited.

He, in turn, left the land to his offspring. There were three of them - an older sister, Linda, a younger brother named Dave and Robert himself, sometimes called "Willie" by acquaintances.

When the government decided to buy the property to make way for a highway, it started a cycle that caused the family to go from fairly poor to suddenly well off.

They bought what would come to be known as "The Piggy Palace" with the funds, selling off some of that to developers looking to construct schools, parks and homes near the new road. That brought in even more cash.

Dave Pickton became famous for the parties he would throw at the property.  "I'd see Willie but it was Dave everybody knew," confirms longtime resident Dave Sheppard. "Everyone used to party with Dave."

"Everybody" included prominent local politicians, musicians and even reporters.

But while Dave became well known for his charity, his elder brother wasn't good with money, often being taken advantage of by people looking for a handout.  "Willie's goofy, Dave's smart," Sheppard shrugs.

The accused killer would often while away his days working the land or at his brother's gravel and demolition business.

He would often be seen scavenging nearby golf courses for lost balls, giving them away to friends or fixing up cars that had been bought for scrap.

Neighbours indicate the family worked 16-18 hours a day, with one referring to Robert as "a good-natured little bastard."

Pickton wasn't terribly religious and was never known to use drugs or alcohol. He also never had a steady girlfriend, once telling a family friend he didn't want to be "tied down."

There are reports his health has deteriorated since his arrest in 2002, with some locals insisting he has kidney and liver problems. They  fear he won't survive the long trial.

But in all the background, there doesn't seem to be anything that would indicate why a man who lived a seemingly aimless but harmless life might suddenly venture out on a course of mass murder.

It's a dilemma lawyers and the evidence will have to prove in court, as what could be the longest and most expensive trial in Canadian history begins.

And while everyone feels for the families of the victims, there are fewer sympathizing with the Picktons themselves. 

"Our name has been tarnished," Linda remarked in a 2002 interview. "It has a humbling affect on us. Any good you've ever done in your life has been destroyed."

Robert Pickton

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert William "Willie" Pickton (born October 24, 1949)<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-1>[2] of Port Coquitlam, British Columbia is a Canadian pig farmer<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-2>[3] and serial killer convicted of the second-degree murders of six women.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-3>[4]<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-4>[5] He is also charged in the deaths of an additional twenty women,<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-5>[6] many of them prostitutes and drug users from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. As of December 11, 2007 he has been sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole after 25 years ? the longest sentence available under Canadian law.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-6>[7]

During the trial's first day, January 22, 2007, the Crown stated he confessed to forty-nine murders to an undercover police officer posing as a cell mate. The Crown reported that Pickton told the officer that he wanted to kill another woman to make it an even 50, and that he was caught because he was "sloppy".<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-7>

Pickton and his brother, David Francis Pickton, ran a registered charity called the Piggy Palace Good Times Society, a non-profit society whose official mandate was to "organize, co-ordinate, manage and operate special events, functions, dances, shows and exhibitions on behalf of service organizations, sports organizations and other worthy groups." According to investigators, the "special events" (which convened at "Piggy's Palace", a converted building on another property adjacent to the pig farm) on Burns Road were raucous gatherings that featured "entertainment" by an ever-changing cast of Downtown Eastside prostitutes.

On February 5, 2002, police executed a search warrant for illegal firearms at the property owned by Pickton and his two siblings. He was taken into custody and police then obtained a second court order to search the farm as part of the BC Missing Women Investigation, when personal items (including a prescription asthma inhaler) belonging to one of the missing women were found. The farm was sealed off by members of the joint RCMP?Vancouver Police Department task force. The following day Pickton was charged with storing a firearm contrary to regulations, possession of a firearm while not being holder of a licence and possession of a loaded restricted firearm without a licence. He was later released and was kept under police surveillance.

On Friday, February 22, 2002, Pickton was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Sereena Abotsway and Mona Wilson. On April 2, 2002 three more charges were added for the murders of Jacqueline McDonell, Diane Rock and Heather Bottomley. A sixth charge for the murder of Andrea Joesbury was laid on April 9, 2002 followed shortly by a seventh for Brenda Wolfe. On September 20, 2002 four more charges were added for the slayings of Georgina Papin, Patricia Johnson, Helen Hallmark and Jennifer Furminger. Four more charges for the murders of Heather Chinnock, Tanya Holyk, Sherry Irving and Inga Hall were laid on October 3, 2002, bringing the total to fifteen, and making this the largest serial killer investigation in Canadian history. On May 26, 2005, twelve more charges were laid against him for the killings of Cara Ellis, Andrea Borhaven, Debra Lynne Jones, Marnie Frey, Tiffany Drew, Kerry Koski, Sarah Devries, Cynthia Feliks, Angela Jardine, Wendy Crawford, Diana Melnick, and Jane Doe (unidentified woman) bringing the total number of first-degree murder charges to 27.

Excavations continued through November 2003; the cost of the investigation is estimated to have been $70 million by the end of 2003, according to the provincial government.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-8>[9] Currently the property is fenced off, liened by the Province of British Columbia. In the meantime, all the buildings have been demolished. Forensic analysis is very difficult because the bodies of the victims may have been left to decompose or allowed to be eaten by insects and pigs on the farm. During the early days of the excavations, forensic anthropologists brought in heavy equipment, including two 50-foot flat conveyor belts and soil sifters to find traces of remains. On March 10, 2004, it was revealed that human flesh may have been ground up and mixed with pork from the farm. This pork was never distributed commercially, but was handed out to friends and visitors of the farm. Another claim made is that he fed the bodies directly to his pigs.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-bodies_fed_to_pigs_9-0>[

Pickton's trial began on January 30, 2006.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-10>[11] He pleaded not guilty to 27 charges of first-degree murder in the British Columbia Supreme Court, located in New Westminster. The voir dire phase of the trial took most of the year to determine what evidence may be admitted before the jury. Reporters were not allowed to disclose any of the material presented in the arguments.

On March 2, 2006, one of the 27 counts was rejected by Justice James Williams for lack of evidence.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-11>[12]

On August 9, 2006, Justice Williams severed the charges and trimmed the indictment from 26 to just six counts. The remaining 20 counts have not been dismissed, however, and the crown can seek another trial (or trials) for them at a later date. Because of the publication ban, full details of the decision are not publicly available; but the judge has explained that trying all 26 charges at once would put an unreasonable burden on the jury, as the trial could last up to two years, and have an increased chance for a mistrial. The judge also added that the six counts he chose had "materially different" evidence than the other 20.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-12>[13]

Jury selection was completed on December 12, 2006, taking just two days. Twelve jurors and two alternates were chosen.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-13>[14]

The date for the jury trial of the first six counts was initially set to start January 8, 2007, but later delayed to January 22, 2007.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-14>[15]<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-15>[16]

January 22, 2007 was the first day of the jury trial where Pickton faced first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Marnie Frey, Sereena Abotsway, Georgina Papin, Andrea Joesbury, Brenda Wolfe and Mona Wilson. The media ban was finally lifted and for the first time Canadians heard the details of what was found during the long investigation. In his opening statement, Crown Counsel Derrill Prevett told the jury of evidence that was found on Pickton's property, including skulls cut in half with hands and feet stuffed inside. The remains of another victim were stuffed in a garbage bag in the bottom of a trash can and her blood stained clothing was found in the trailer in which Pickton lived. Part of one of the victim's jaw bone and teeth were found in the ground beside the slaughter house and a .22 calibre<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-16>[17] revolver with an attached dildo containing both his and a victim's DNA was in his laundry room.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-17>[18] In a video taped recording played for the jury, Pickton claimed to have attached the dildo to his weapon as a makeshift silencer.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-bodies_fed_to_pigs_9-1>[10]

As of February 20, 2007, the following information has been presented to the court:<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-18>[19]

The items police found inside Pickton's trailer - A loaded .22 revolver with a dildo over the barrel and one round fired, boxes of .357 Magnum handgun ammunition, night-vision goggles, two pairs of faux fur-lined handcuffs, a syringe with three millilitres of blue liquid inside, and "Spanish Fly" aphrodisiac.
A videotape of Pickton's friend Scott Chubb saying Pickton had told him a good way to kill a female heroin addict was to inject her with windshield-washer fluid. A second tape was played for Pickton, in which an associate named Andrew Bellwood said Pickton mentioned killing prostitutes by handcuffing and strangling them, then bleeding and gutting them before feeding them to pigs. However, defence lawyer Peter Ritchie said the jury should be skeptical of Chubb and Bellwood's credibility.
Photos of the contents of a garbage can found in Pickton's slaughterhouse, which held some remains of Mona Wilson. Justice James Williams suspended jury deliberations on December 6, 2007 after he discovered an error in his charge to the jury.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-19>[20] Earlier in the day, the jury had submitted a written question to Justice James requesting clarification of his charge, asking "Are we able to say 'yes' [i.e., find Pickton guilty] if we infer the accused acted indirectly?"<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-20>[21]

On December 9, 2007, the jury returned a verdict that Pickton is not guilty on 6 counts of first-degree murder, but is guilty on 6 counts of second-degree murder.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-21>[22] A second-degree murder conviction carries a punishment of a life sentence, with no possibility of parole for a period between 10 to 25 years, to be set by the trial judge. On December 11, 2007, after reading 18 victim impact statements, British Columbia Supreme Court Judge Justice James Williams sentenced Pickton to life with no possibility of parole for 25 years - the maximum punishment for second-degree murder, and equal to the sentence which would have been imposed for a first-degree murder conviction. "Mr. Pickton's conduct was murderous and repeatedly so. I cannot know the details but I know this: What happened to them was senseless and despicable," said Justice Williams in passing the sentence.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-22>[23]

Pickton still faces a further 20 murder charges involving other female victims from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-23>[24] On February 26, 2008, a family member of one of the 20 women named as alleged victims told the media that the Crown had told her a trial on the further 20 counts might not proceed.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-24>

Crown appeal

On January 7, 2008, the Attorney General filed an appeal in the British Columbia Court of Appeal, against Pickton's acquittals on the first-degree murder charges.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-25>[26] The grounds of appeal relate to a number of evidentiary rulings made by the trial judge, certain aspects of the trial judge?s jury instructions, and the ruling to sever the six charges Pickton was tried on from the remaining twenty.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-26>[27]<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-27>[28]

Some relatives of the victims in the case were taken aback by the announcement of a crown appeal, especially because Attorney-General Wally Oppal had said a few days earlier that the prosecution would likely not appeal.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-28>[29] Although Pickton had been acquitted on the first-degree murder charges, he was convicted of second-degree murder and received the same sentence as he would have on first-degree murder convictions. The relatives of the victims expressed concern that the convictions would be jeopardized if the Crown argued that the trial judge had made errors.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-29>[30] Opposition critic Leonard Krog criticized the Attorney-General for not having briefed the victims? families in advance.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-Vancouver_Sun_2008-01-07_30-0>[31]

Oppal apologized to the victims? families for not informing them of the appeal before it was announced to the general public.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-31>[32]<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-Vancouver_Sun_2008-01-07_30-1>[31] Oppal also said that the appeal was filed largely for ?strategic? reasons, in anticipation of an appeal by the defence. The prosecution?s rationale was that if Pickton appeals his convictions, and if that appeal is allowed, resulting in a new trial, the prosecution will want to hold that new trial on the original 26 charges of first-degree murder. But the Crown would be precluded from doing so unless it had successfully appealed the original acquittals on the first-degree murder charges, and the severance of the 26 counts into one group of six and one group of twenty.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-32>[33]

Under the applicable rules of court,<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-33>[34] the time period for the Crown to appeal expired 30 days after December 9, when the verdicts were rendered, while the time period for the defence to appeal expired 30 days after December 11, when Pickton was sentenced.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-Vancouver_Sun_2008-01-07_30-2>[31] That is why the Crown announced its appeal first, even though the Crown appeal is intended to be conditional on an appeal by the defence. If the defence had not filed an appeal, then the Crown could have withdrawn its appeal.

Defence appeal

On January 9, 2008, lawyers for Pickton filed a notice of appeal in the British Columbia Court of Appeal, seeking a new trial on six counts of second-degree murder.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-Vancouver_Sun_2008-01-09_34-0>[35]<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-35>[36] The lawyer representing Pickton on the appeal is Gil McKinnon, who had been a crown prosecutor in the 1970s.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-36>[37]

The notice of appeal enumerates various areas in which the defence alleges that the trial judge erred: the main charge to the jury, the response to the jurors? question, amending the jury charge, similar fact evidence, and Pickton?s statements to the police.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-37>

On December 9, 2007, Pickton was convicted of second-degree murder in the deaths of six women:

Reported missing October 2002. As of March 2, 2006, the murder charge involving the unidentified victim has been lifted. Pickton refused to enter a plea on the charge involving this victim, known in the proceedings as Jane Doe, so the court registered a not-guilty plea on his behalf. "The count as drawn fails to meet the minimal requirement set out in Section 581 of the Criminal Code. Accordingly, it must be quashed," wrote Justice James Williams. The detailed reasons for the judge's ruling cannot be reported in Canada because of the publication ban covering this stage of the trial.

Pickton is implicated in the murders of the following women, but charges have not yet been laid (incomplete list):


Mary Ann Clark<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-57>[58] aka Nancy Greek, 25, disappeared in August 1991 from downtown Victoria
Yvonne Marie Boen (sometimes uses the surname England)<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-58>[59] (born November 30, 1967), 34 when last seen on March 16, 2001 and reported missing on March 21, 2001.
Dawn Teresa Crey<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-59>[60], reported missing in December 2000
Two unidentified women

August 2006 'Pickton Letters'

In August 2006, Thomas Loudamy, a 27-year-old Fremont, California resident, claimed that he had received three letters from Robert Pickton in response to letters Loudamy sent under an assumed identity.

In the letters, Pickton allegedly speaks with concern about the expense of the investigation, asserts his innocence, quotes and refers to the Bible<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-60>[61] <SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-61>[62], praises the trial judge, and responds in detail to (fictional) information in Loudamy's letters, which were written in the guise of Mya Barnett, a 'down on her luck' woman.

The news of the letters' existence was broken by The Vancouver Sun, in an exclusive published on Saturday, September 2, 2006, and as of that date, neither law enforcement nor any representative of Pickton has verified the authenticity of the letters. The Sun, however, has undertaken several actions to confirm the documents' authenticity, including:

Confirming that the outgoing stamps are consistent with those of the North Fraser Pretrial Centre (NFPC), where Pickton is being held;
Confirming through a representative of Canada Post that the outgoing stamps are not forgeries; and
Confirming that the machine (identifiable with a serial number included in the stamp) used to stamp the envelopes is the machine used by the NFPC. Loudamy claims not to have kept copies of his outgoing letters to Pickton, and as of September 4, 2006, no information on their existence has been forthcoming from Pickton or his representatives.

Loudamy has a history of writing to accused and convicted criminals, in some instances under his own identity (as with his correspondence with Clifford Olson), and in others in the guise of a character he believes will be more readily accepted by the targets of the letters. Loudamy, an aspiring journalist, claims that his motivation in releasing the letters is to help the public gain insights into Pickton.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-62>

Pickton in Popular Culture

The Seattle punk band The Acc?sed wrote a song about Pickton called "Hooker Fortified Pork Products" on their 2005 Oh Martha! album. The song's "protagonist" is named "Willie P" (Pickton is generally referred to as Willie by those who know him) and "B.C. backyard butcher" who is said to have "been cruising the east end" (a reference to Vancouver's downtown east side.) The song describes how the hookers are thrown into a wood chipper. It includes a portion that is spoken in a caricature of a hillbilly accent which begins with the words "well howdy eh'!" ("Eh" is common in comic impressions of Canadians.). It describes the pork products as being "chock full of heroin and AIDS."<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-63>[64]

The German psychobilly band Mad Sin also wrote a song entitled "Pigfarm" on their 2007 release "20 Years in Sin Sin".

The Pickton Murders were also mentioned on an episode of CSI. Although the name was not identified, the character Nick Stokes mentioned a case from Canada where the victims remains were fed to pigs as a method of disposal which similarly happened on this episode. (Season 7 Episode 20)

A low-budget American horror movie, Killer Pickton (2005), was released in Australia in 2007, and then promptly withdrawn from release due to legal complaints by the Canadian government.

Canadian hardcore band Fucked Up allegedly wrote their EP "Year of the Pig" about Robert Pickton.

The book "Swastika" by Michael Slade used Pickton as the basis for one of its characters, a Vancouver serial killer who fed the remains of his victims to pigs.
