Kent, British Columbia Life style victimization Theory "Crime committed against the victim leaves them partially at fault based on their lifestyle, the company they keep, simply being in a public place, if they frequent places where criminal activity is known to happen, or even the time of day that they frequent certain areas" Power Control Theory The power control theory suggests that criminal behavior is largely dependent upon gender, familial social and economic structures.

The perceived power within the family extends to social cultures Police Investigation The official search for Vancouver's missing women began in September 1998 after a list was created listing 40 missing woman.
Even though the list was flawed, Detective Dave Dickson had his suspicions so he looked into the issue closer.
Police looked at disappearances starting as far back as 1971
Some of the potential suspects were:
Michael Leopold
Barry Thomas Neidermier.
In 1998, police got a good lead from Bill Hiscox
The disappearances were happening more quickly as time went on
on February 7, 2002 Vancouver Constable Catherine Galliford told reporters that searchers were scouring the Pickton pig farm known as the “piggy palace”.
Following his arrest Pickton was charged with 5 more counts of first degree murder
During the search at Picktons farm investigators found body parts scattered around the property
Health officials are worried that Pickton was selling human remains disguised as pork.
The jury took 9 days to decide that Pickton was found guilty on six counts of second-degree murder Police recorded Hiscox's statement and a detective accompanied him to the pig farm, afterward vowing "to push the higher-ups, all the way to the top, to investigate.”

Ms Yelds, who also worked on the farm had her suspicions, she stated that she had seen bloody clothing and pieces of identification for as many as 10 women inside Picktons trailer.

Despite Ms. Yelds and Mr. Hiscox information, nothing ended up happening.

Why did they stop contacting Mr. Hiscox and failed to pursue Ms.Yelds for first hand accounts of the farm? At the time he was 37-year-old, widowed man, he had turned to drugs, and alcohol to deal with the loss of his wife, he was an employee of the Pickton’s Salvage company

Described the Pickton farm as, "a creepy-looking place".

He described Pickton,"a pretty quiet guy, hard to strike up a conversation with, but I don't think he had much use for men."

Hiscox told detectives Pickton, "frequents the downtown area all the time, for girls." Victims During the crime of Robert Pickton there were a list of missing women that were brought to the Vancouver police. However the missing women were not taken seriously due to them being addicts and/or in the sex trade. Women were found in drug rehabs or passed away due to drug overdoses. However the police did not take the case of the missing women as serious as they would if they were women missing from the high end neighborhood due to the life style that these women had led

Some families after the body of their family members were found were very upset and outraged by the way the police had handled the remains of their loved ones. The family of Marnie Frey were told that the only piece left of their daughter that was a jaw bone was cremated. However a forensic anthropologist examined the jaw bone fragments that’s were left in an urn and confirmed that the jaw had not gone through the cremation process.
