While searching Pickton’s property for illegal firearms, police found personal belongings of women that had been reported missing. Subsequent searches revealed body parts, such as jawbones belonging to some of the missing women, as well as skulls that had been sawed in half with the victim’s feet and hands inside for good measure. Many other remains have yet to be found. Although in 2004, it was disclosed that some of the flesh from Pickton’s victims may have been ground up and given out to his friends and farm visitors as part of the pork he sold from the farm. Pickton has been charged with 26 counts of first-degree murder. Maximum Punishment is imprisoment for life 25 years with no parole.
