Heard Of Robert Pickton, The Pig Farm Killer? These Podcasts Tell The Story

Robert William Pickton, also known as ‘The Pig Farmer Killer’, ‘The Butcher’, or ‘Pork Chop Rob’, is suspected of being one of the most prolific serial killers in Canadian history.

Pickton owned a pig farm with his brother David. It was extremely remote, and instead of a guard dog, a large boar patrolled the farm.

The brothers sold some of their property to make millions, and started a non-profit charity in 1996, called the Piggy Palace Good Times Society.


Can pigs really consume a human body without leaving a trace? ⁣ ⁣ Forensic anthropologist Dr Penny McCardle conducted a world-first study to find the answer.

The charity had the vague aim to “organize, coordinate, manage and operate special events, functions, dances, shows, and exhibitions on behalf of service organizations, sports organizations, and other worthy groups.”

These “charity” events were raves that the brothers held in their farm’s slaughterhouse, that would attract crowds of up to 2,000 people.

One of the farmworkers started noticing that women who visited the farm tended to go missing, and eventually reported this to the police.
