Another woman’s DNA found on Pickton pig farm

VANCOUVER - Traces of another missing woman have been found on the pig farm where accused serial killer Robert William Pickton once lived.

Cindy Feliks

Cindy Feliks, 43, disappeared in the fall of 1997. Four years after her disappearance, and after pressure from her family, police added her name to the list of woman missing from downtown Vancouver.

Her DNA has now been found on the pig farm where the remains of many other women have been discovered.

Pickton is charged with murdering 15 women who vanished from Vancouver's downtown east side.

Feliks' mother, Margaret Kraft, said she still doesn't know what sort of DNA evidence the police found. She said they won't tell her.

Kraft said at first she didn't know whether to believe her daughter was dead, so she phoned the coroner who is working on the case.

"He told me if someone called him and told him his daughter's DNA had been found on the pig farm, he would assume she was dead," she said.

Police told Kraft they aren't ready to lay a charge in based on the new evidence, and Kraft said she was told prosecutors don't want to lay any more charges against Pickton until his pretrial hearing begins because it might delay the case.

Pickton's preliminary hearing is scheduled to start on Monday.
