E77: Robert Pickton

E77: Robert Pickton

August 26, 2019

Robert "Willy" Pickton, also known as the "Pig Farmer Killer", is perhaps Canada's most notorious serial killer. Pickton grew up on a pig farm in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, which he would eventually inherit and run with his siblings. In his adult years, Robert allegedly developed a crack cocaine addiction, as well as a penchant for picking up sex trade workers in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside neighbourhood. By 2002, Robert Pickton had brutally murdered up to 49 of the women he had picked up, feeding them to his pigs and burying their remains on his farm. In the final episode of our Killer Canucks series, we cover Robert William Pickton, one of Canada's most prolific serial killers.

If you have information about any of the missing women from Downtown Eastside Vancouver, we ask you to report it to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or on their website at https://www.solvecrime.ca/.

E76: Bruce McArthur

August 19, 2019

For more than forty years, Bruce McArthur lived a completely normal life, raising a mostly functional family and working as a relatively successful salesman. In the early 2010's, his seemingly normal life spiraled into nearly a decade of murder and sadism. Between 2010 and 2017, Bruce McArthur terrorized Toronto's gay community by murdering eight men in the Church and Wellesley area. McArthur, who worked as a landscaper, dismembered the bodies of his victims and hid them in plain sight. In 2018, he was finally apprehended, becoming one of Canada's most famous serial killers. In the penultimate episode of our Killer Canucks series, we discuss the life and crimes of Bruce McArthur.

E75: Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka

August 12, 2019

Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, the "Ken and Barbie Killers", are without a doubt Canada's most famous serial killers. On the outside, the couple seemed to have it all - good looks, steady jobs, and an undeniable romantic chemistry. Unbeknownst to everybody around them, both Bernardo and Homolka were sexual sadists who pushed each other to the limit. Between December 1990 and April 1992, the pair raped and killed three teenage girls, capturing nearly every moment on video. The details of their gruesome crimes continue to shock Canadians to this day, and their subsequent criminal trials generated some of the most newsworthy moments of the time. In the eighth installment of our Killer Canucks series, we discuss the life and crimes of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka.

E74: Peter Woodcock

E74: Peter Woodcock

August 5, 2019

Peter Woodcock, one of Canada's youngest serial killers, shocked the city of Toronto with his brutal crimes. In the mid-1950's, Peter would bike the streets of Toronto in search of his next victim - his preference was children under the age of 10. His crimes would very quickly escalate from sick sexual games to murder, which would eventually land Peter in the Penetanguishene Mental Health Centre. Though he was incarcerated, Woodcock proved to the world that nothing could stop him from living out his sick fantasies. In the seventh episode of our Killer Canucks series, we take a look at the life of Peter Woodcock, "the serial killer they couldn't cure."
