Now that the publication bans are lifted, you need Stevie Cameron
to get the whole story, which includes accounts of Pickton''s
notoriety that police never uncovered. You need On the
Covering the case of one of North America''s most prolific serial
killer gave Stevie Cameron access not only to the story as it
unfolded over many years in two British Columbia courthouses, but
also to information unknown to the police - and not in the
transcripts of their interviews with Pickton - such as from
Pickton''s long-time best friend, Lisa Yelds, and from several
women who survived terrifying encounters with him. You will now
learn what was behind law enforcement''s refusal to believe that a
serial killer was at work.
Stevie Cameron first began following the story of missing women in
1998, when the odd newspaper piece appeared chronicling the
disappearances of drug-addicted sex trade workers from Vancouver''s
notorious Downtown Eastside. It was February 2002 before Robert
William Pickton was arrested, and 2008 before he was found guilty,
on six counts of second-degree murder. These counts were appealed
and in 2010, the Supreme Court of Canada rendered its conclusion.
The guilty verdict was upheld, and finally this unprecedented tale
of true crime can be told.
