Robert William PICKTON

 
 
 

 

Portrait of An Accused Killer

Some sex-trade workers testified that Pickton was kind and generous to them, while other witnesses
at the trial linked him to the murder of women from the Downtown Eastside. From a young boy
named Robbie who apparently didnít like butchering, Pickton grew up under the shadow of his
younger brother and did miserably in school.
