Another family of Pickton victim sues RCMP, Vancouver police

THE CANADIAN PRESSJULY 16, 2013 4:04 PM

The line up of family members suing serial killer Robert Pickton and police for failing to investigate the reports of missing women is growing longer.

The son of Stephanie Lane has filed a separate lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court alleging that the Vancouver police and the RCMP negligently contributed to Laneís death and her sonís suffering.

Lane went missing in early 1997, just over eight months after her son ó whose name is withheld ó was born.

The DNA of the 20-year-old Metis woman was discovered on Picktonís farm five years later.

The lawsuit claims both the Vancouver Police Department and the RCMP were aware a serial killer was attacking sex workers in Vancouverís Downtown Eastside, but failed to investigate.

The children of four other women whose remains were found on Picktonís farm launched separate lawsuits in May.

None of the allegations contained in the lawsuits have been proven in court.
