By the sounds of it, Robert Pickton should be re-visited.
There are witnesses claiming other(s) were involved in his whole operation. If connected to the Death Eaters, as he himself claimed in a cryptic way, http://huff.to/1fMeivm , would mean that he was probably a patsy, a man in charge of disposing of evidence for more higher profile persons involved.
Not saying he wasn’t engaged in the luring and killing of prostitutes himself, but that he and others seem to be pointing in the direction of a conspiracy not publicly investigated.
“A former sex-trade worker testified Thursday that she’s afraid to speak about the Robert William Pickton case and that someone else, along with Pickton, was involved in the killings.” – http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/pickton-didn-t-act-alone-in-killings-witness-says-1.685626
“Since his conviction, Pickton has repeatedly denied responsibility for killing Downtown Eastside sex workers, offering vague, rambling denials and suggesting someone else was to blame.
In August 2010, shortly after the Supreme Court of Canada denied the final appeal of his murder convictions, Pickton spoke to a CTV reporter from jail and claimed others were responsible.
He made similar claims in a series of letters to The Canadian Press in 2012.
In each instance, Pickton includes cryptic claims that there is more to the story, but he never takes the opportunity to fill in the blanks.
Likewise, he did not use his statement of defence to offer any explanation beyond yet another denial.” – http://huff.to/1fMeivm
“Charges brought against Robert Pickton after one of his victims managed to escape were dropped because she “wasn’t credible,” the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry heard Monday morning.
The woman, known to the inquiry as “Ms. Anderson,” broke free from handcuffs at Pickton’s trailer on March 23, 1997 at 1:45 a.m., and escaped after a bloody knife fight with him.
RCMP collected Pickton’s blood-spattered clothing, a used condom, handcuffs and bandages, but never had them tested for DNA. Charges of attempted murder were dropped in January 1998 by Port Coquitlam, B.C., Crown counsel.” – http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/02/06/woman-who-escaped-robert-pickton-with-handcuff-dangling-off-arm-and-covered-in-his-blood-was-not-deemed-credible-inquiry-hears/
“Mr. [Cameron] Ward jumped to his feet. “I was the counsel who made those comments and I’ve made similar comments in the hearing room in the past, and I’ll say them again now,” he declared. “I fear this commission is enabling a cover-up to be perpetrated on the public by the police interests.” – http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/02/06/robert-pickton-inquiry-chief-wally-oppal-denies-police-cover-up/
“Mr. Ward is a lawyer who represents the families of 23 missing and murdered women at the inquiry. Five months into public hearings, his faith in the process has crumbled.
Certain police documents — including notes from their investigations — have not been disclosed. Pages from reports have mysteriously vanished. Police witnesses have offered conflicting accounts of key events. “This case has all the familiar hallmarks of a police cover-up,” says Mr. Ward, choosing his words carefully. “And I’m afraid the inquiry may be enabling it.”” – http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/02/03/brian-hutchinson-pickton-case-has-all-the-familiar-hallmarks-of-a-police-cover-up-lawyer/
