A young woman reporter from Vancouver known as raincoaster recounts her all-too-close encounter with Canada's worst serial killer. What she remembers best about pig farmer Robert Pickton is the way he smells:
My family has farms, I know what pigs and pig farming smell like, and I
know what a shower can do for that. I also know, from my other
researches, that serial killers are associated with a particular smell.
Willie didn’t smell like pigs, he smelt like something that is nearly
impossible to describe. If metal could rot, that would be the smell of
it; it was tangy, it seemed charged with negative ions, it nearly made
my eyes water, and it was physically repulsive in the extreme.
Yikes. It's a very creepy story, esp for a father. Read it here...if you dare. Here's a drawing by Daylife of the man accused of killing dozens of women, based on a video from his cell.
