Canadian Serial Killer “Speared” in the Head

Edmonton Journal

Notorious B.C. serial killer Robert (Willie) Pickton was on life support Monday after a brutal attack by another prisoner in Quebec’s maximum Port-Cartier Institution.

Pickton was airlifted to hospital after the assault, which sources say took place just before 2 p.m. local time on Sunday, May 19.

One source said the attacker had earlier assaulted other inmates at the prison before being moved to segregation. The attack on Pickton allegedly happened after the prisoner was then released back onto the same unit as the serial killer, Postmedia has learned. More

Nicknamed the Pig Farm Killer, Picton is known as Canada’s most prolific serial killer, linked to potentially 49 murders. He was charged with 26 and convicted for six. The 74-year-old Picton became eligible for day parole this last February. Here

    Was the assailant’s name ‘Chuck’ by any chance?
    That humor is familiar to me through my three brothers.
    😎😄 I got your message and laughed.

  2. ^ Your use of the name “Cleveburg” cracks me up. I use it all the time now when referencing the city. (Never been there, Harry, But it’s gotta be better than Columbus, right? I have been there twice. 👎)

  3. I’ve been to Dacron, Ohio.

    The people running the city of Cleveland changed the name of the baseball team from the Cleveland Indians to the Cleveland Somethings – I can’t remember what. Dumb. If they had to change it at all, it should’ve been changed to the Cleveland River Fire, after the infamous incident of its river catching on fire…

    Why not? I think there is a team called the Chicago Fire in some sport – soccer or cornhole throwing or horseshoe tossing.
