I have to say that Robert Pickton\’s lawyers are using a novel defense here. Pickton\’s accused of luring prostitutes and drug addicts back to his pig farm, having sex with them, murdering them and then dismembering the bodies and feeding them to said pigs. Perhaps 60 people all told. This might not be the strongest defense claim ever:
While the defence has acknowledged the remains were found on his farm, it argued that other suspects have been ignored and that the evidence – including skulls, hands and feet – was no proof of his guilt.
It might even be true but that\’s not how I\’d bet on a jury deciding.
