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 Farm.

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.

Interesting but horrifying to learn what happened to the people. The amount of information made it a bit hard to absorb and follow at times, but interesting all the same.

Miscarriage of Justice
June 12th, 2013
This was a huge insight as to why Willie Pickton got away with first degree murder and convicted of 2nd degree murder. It is outrageous how much evidence was kept from the jury that would have most definitely turned the verdict into guilty. It's also quite obvious people were not blind on that farm; something like that going on just isn't simply "overlooked"! Dinah Taylor and Dave Pickton should definitely have been looked at more closely. How could that many murders take place on one property yet only one person receive the brunt of investigation? Full justice has not been served for Vancouver's missing women and their families, whom have suffered most during this tumultuous ordeal. A well written, informative book. Highly recommended to those interested in high profile true crime cases.
