During the first day of his trial, January 22, 2007, the Crown stated he confessed to forty-nine murders to an undercover police officer posing as a cell mate. The crown reported that Pickton told the officer that he wanted to kill another woman to make it an even 50, and that he was caught because he was "sloppy"
Jurors had been warned that details of the case, until now under a publication ban in Canada, would be horrific.
Both brothers raised pigs on the family's 17-acre (7-hectare) farm outside Vancouver.
Prevett said the government would prove that Pickton murdered the six women and butchered their remains. As a successful pig farmer, he said, Pickton had the expertise and equipment to dispose of them.
"The heads of the individuals had been cut in two, vertically," Prevett said. "With the skulls were left and right hands and the front parts of the left and right feet."
Prevett said one of Joesbury's earrings was found in the slaughterhouse. He said human bones were found mixed with manure and that part of Wolfe's jaw, with five teeth still attached, was found in a pig trough.

Canada needs to bring in the Death Penalty.
Pickton lives in my city. One of my close friends used to attend parties at Piggy's Palace and said that Willy was a little off, but seemed nice enough. *shiver*
