Plea for pig farm meat turns up no new evidence

COQUITLAM - Three weeks after RCMP asked the public to turn in meat products that might have come from the farm of accused killed Robert "Willy" Pickton no one has come forward with new evidence.

Det. Const. Sheila Sullivan said Monday RCMP received dozens of calls after making the public plea but none of the calls have resulted in police locating samples.

Pickton, who has been charged with 15 counts of first-degree murder, held parties and barbecues on the Port Coquitlam farm and distributed meat to friends and acquaintances, although meat from the farm was never sold in retail stores.

Because of the unsanitary conditions at the farm, health officials feared bacterial and viral infections could have contaminated the meat. Police also suspected the meat could contain DNA evidence of some of Pickton's alleged victims.

Sullivan said Monday police no longer believe there is any such evidence to be had.

"We're pretty convinced now that if there was anyone out there who had any, they would have come forward by now," she said.

She said tips continue to come in and people should call the missing women task force if they suspect they have evidence. The number is 1-877-687-3377.
