  • [Crime fact 1] Canadian serial killer Robert Pickton a.k.a. ‘The Pig Farmer Killer’ confessed to murdering 49 women between 1983-2002. Vancouver PD had received a number of tips about prostitutes going to his farm and never being seen again. One time he was even arrested for attempted murder but not charged because the woman was a heroin addict. Authorities did nothing but managed to collect some physical evidence (mostly clothes) that would later connect him to two more of his victims, but only after it sat in an evidence locker for over 7 years, completely forgotten. There’s even speculation that he ground his victims up with pork that he may have sold to the public. He had massive parties at his farm all the time and most probably served the tainted meat to his guests. After he was arrested he said he was disappointed that he didn’t get to 50 women and was caught because he was “sloppy”.
