: Although serial killer Robert Pickton began serving his life sentence for murder more than three and a half years ago the story is far from over. Here’s a list of the most significant events that have happened in the Pickton case since the Supreme Court’s decision last summer: August, 2010: The Supreme Court ofContinue Reading
Covering the case of one of North America’s most prolific serial killer gave Stevie Cameron access not only to the story as it unfolded over many years in two British Columbia courthouses, but also to information unknown to the police – and not in the transcripts of their interviews with Pickton – such as from Pickton’s long-time best friend, Lisa Yelds, and from several women who survived terrifying encounters with him. You will now learn what was behind law enforcement’s refusal to believe that a serial killer was at work.
Stevie Cameron first began following the story of missing women in 1998, when the odd newspaper piece appeared chronicling the disappearances of drug-addicted sex trade workers from Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside. It was February 2002 before Robert William Pickton was arrested, and 2008 before he was found guilty, on six counts of second-degree murder. These counts were appealed and in 2010, the Supreme Court of Canada rendered its conclusion. The guilty verdict was upheld, and finally this unprecedented tale of true crime can be told.

Stevie Cameron turns her renowned analytical eye from the “crooks in suits” of her previous books to the case of Vancouver’s missing women and the man who has been charged with killing 27 of them, who if convicted will have the horrific distinction of being the worst serial killer in Canadian history.
It’s a shocking story that may not be over anytime soon. When the police moved in on Pickton’s famous residence, the “pig farm” of Port Coquitlam, in February 2002, the entire 14-acre area was declared a crime scene — the largest one in Canadian history. Well over 150 investigators and forensics experts were required, including 102 anthropology students from across the country called in to sift through the entire farm, one shovelful of dirt at a time.
