Serial Killer Suffers Brutal Fate In Prison

( – The serial killer nicknamed the “Pig Farmer Killer” has been violently assaulted in prison and remains in critical condition. An unnamed 51-year-old inmate is alleged to have attacked 74-year-old Robert Pickton with the broken handle of a broom. Pickton’s injuries are reported to be life-threatening.

Throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s Pickton is understood to have lured dozens of women to their deaths on his remote pig farm in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. He once admitted to a police officer to having murdered 49 women and having had ambitions to kill 50 in total. In total, the DNA or remains of 33 women were found on his farm, and he was charged with the murders of 26.

He was found guilty in 2007 of the second-degree murder six women and sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years. Pickton’s remaining murder charges were stayed as he had already been sentenced to the maximum sentence available under Canadian law.

The court was told that Pickton ground up the bodies of his victims to feed to his pigs and may even have mixed some human flesh in with pork meat to be sold for human consumption. A forensic investigation of the farm continues to this day in the hope of finding more human remains or further information about Pickton’s victims. Some of the human remains have never been identified, and there are many more missing women who may have been victims of Pickton.

Many of Pickton’s victims were prostitutes and/or drug addicts that he managed to pick up in Vancouver’s Downtown East area. Vancouver police were heavily criticized for not taking their disappearances seriously enough due to the victims’ lifestyles, or due to many victims being indigenous.

Pickton was first investigated and charged with the attempted murder of prostitute Wendy Lyn Eistetter. She had been stabbed multiple times, but her testimony was deemed unreliable due to her drug abuse. Pickton was not convicted. Five years later, both he and his brother David were arrested at the farm over firearm charges. At this point, police became concerned about items they saw on the farm, including personal items belonging to missing women. They were able to get a warrant and return to begin the years-long search of the farm that would ultimately result in Robert Pickton’s imprisonment. Should he survive his attack, he will be eligible for parole in 2027.
