Confessed to 49 Victims
Robert Pickton confessed to his cellmate that he wanted to kill another woman to make his count an even fifty. His cellmate was an undercover agent from the Office of the Inspector General.
The women of Vancouver were his prey. After the death of his parents, he discovered a new freedom to do what he wanted when he wanted. He spent his days working on the farm and his nights on the town. After he and his siblings sold part of the farm they registered the charity Piggy Palace Good Time Society and started throwing wild parties and raves in a converted slaughterhouse.
On March 23rd, 1997, Robert Pickton was charged with attempted murder. He’d handcuffed a sex worker, who he stabbed several times. She was able to break free, injure Pickton and escape. But the charge was dismissed in 1998. And months later, after some legal pressure, their charity status was dissolved.
Local investigators were looking into the 64 missing Vancouver women, many who had been seen on the Pickton farm before their disappearance, but hit a dead end. Then, on February 1st 2002, a truck driver mentioned to the police that he had seen illegal weapons in Robert Pickton’s trailer. And the police had their lead and were able to obtain a court order to search the farm. What they discovered would begin the largest forensic investigation in Canada, when one investigator found an inhaler with the name of one of the missing women on. The police obtained a new search warrant and Robert Pickton spent the night behind bars.
