Alberta woman to attend Pickton trial
Niece’s remains found on pig farm

The aunt of an Alberta woman whose remains were discovered on Robert Pickton’s B.C. pig farm says his not-guilty plea in her murder only makes her hate him even more.

The pig farmer is accused of 26 counts of first-degree murder. His trial on six counts - including the death of Enoch resident Georgina Papin - begins Jan. 8.

With hopes of attending at least the beginning of the trial herself, Pauline Papin said she doesn’t think she’ll be able to look Pickton in the eye as he sits in the prisoner’s box.

“I don’t think I can do it,” she said. “There’s going to be too much anger. It wasn’t her time to go.”

But after four years of waiting, Papin said she’s relieved Pickton’s trial is finally just a few weeks away.

“It’s emotional for me,” she said, fighting back tears. “We can’t even get (Georgina’s) remains until this trial is over. I’m glad this is finally starting and I can only hope that justice will prevail.”

She also said it breaks her heart that the case highlights Georgina as a prostitute when she was so much more.

“These women are still human beings no matter what they do,” she said.

For the first trial, Pickton is accused of killing Papin, Mona Wilson, Sereena Abotsway, Andrea Joesbury, Brenda Wolfe and Marnie Frey.
