Description

For two decades, women living in a ten-block stretch of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, were disappearing without a trace. This week’s episode is part one of a two-part series. It’s a story of tragedy and triumph – and of one man who terrorized the downtown Eastside for almost two decades.

also I work with women who live or have lived on the downtown east side. I know women who's sister and mother's were taken. this is a disgraceful way to address the issues of the community of the downtown east side.

you're demonizing a group of severely marginalized people. The victims of Robert Pickton were mostly indigenous people and their families (chosen or by blood) were looking for them. the cops didn't do shit to look for them. it was the cops fault this man wasn't found. it was incredibly racist.

What was the point of this episode? just to warn us that you were going to feature Willy Piggy Pickton next week? "Full Body Chills- NOT."

If you are interested in listening to a professionally done feature about Pickton: https://castbox.fm/vb/159434294 It's episode 15 (part 1 of 4 parts about Pickton) and it belongs to Kristi Lee's awesome "Canadian TrueCrime" podcast; if you like giggly two-/moresomes, this is not for you! But if you are looking for a professionally done podcast with a great host who doesn't just scratch at the surface but digs in deep, you should try this one (her Dellen Millard feature is the best bar none!).

lmao fuk this wasn't a difficult case to solve there was discrimination against First Nations woman who were addicts they were considered not a priority to the cops they didn't give any fuks and was found to be true after an investigation of them. How many had to die before they would look into it? no fuks given and it still happens today!!

"great story telling" by using other podcast's work ? 😒 Really? Listen to "Canadian TrueCrime" by Kristi Lee if you want more facts and less 'full body chills".

living in canada, this story is almost like a classic campfire story. as soon as said quoted him as saying "im the pig man" it immediately clicked. this was probably the first story that got me into true crime as a kid.
