After nearly twenty years, police have made an
arrest in the case of the Vancouver Missing Women. In February they
charged Robert Pickton with the murders of Serenna Abotsway and Mona Wilson, who
had been missing from Vancouver's eastside. Last week, police added three
more murder charges.
Prostitutes began disappearing from the downtown east side in the early
1980s. America's Most Wanted first profiled the story in
1999, after the number of missing women skyrocketed to 30. In total, more
than 50 prostitutes have disappeared and police are still looking for more
information about the pig farm and Robert Pickton.
Last spring, police formed a task force with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
and began a review of old tips. In February 2002, investigators began a
search of a pig farm owned by two brothers, Dave and Robert Pickton, in a suburb
of Vancouver called in Port Coquitlam. According to newspaper
reports, police are finding bloody clothing, identification and other
personal belongings of some of the missing women.
Reports say, Robert frequented the eastside and that he picked up prostitutes
and brought them back to a bar on or near his property. There is also
speculation that Robert fed the women's bodies to his pigs or disposed of them
by boiling down the remains in a giant vat. He may have sold that material
to a rendering plant on the eastside of Vancouver.
Although they have made an arrest, police have not closed the investigation into
the missing women. They are still interested in any information about the
Picktons, their farm and the missing prostitutes.
