All About Robert Pickton
It was in 2001 that Robert Pickton was charged with murdering about 26 women in his pig farm in Canada. His case was the largest investigation in the history of the country. Pickton had been convicted of six murders and is related to the missing of many other indigenous women and girls.
The murder spree started after Pickton and his brother started a registered charity by the name of Piggy’s Palace Good Times Society. The siblings hosted parties with sex trade workers and bikers, had rampant use of drugs, and were noisy.
Offering women drugs and money. the culprit took his victims to his farm. Since these women were often estranged from their families, their missing went unnoticed. Over 65 missing have been reported then.
In 2002, as a truck driver saw illegal guns on the farm, he reported it to the police. Finally, a search warrant was issued to search the farm. This led to finding various items linked to the missing women. Thus this led to the arrest of the pig farm owner.
