Pickton revisited

September 16th, 2015

The first detective assigned to Vancouver’s Missing and Murdered Women Investigation in 1998, Lori Shenher, was a former newspaper reporter with an English Lit degree. Now she has written a tell-all memoir about the Picton debacle in which she lets us know the police were tipped off about Pickton three years before he was finally arrested. Picton was interviewed by police in 2002. Shenher’s experiences with VPD resulted in PTSD and her own deep distrust of the police and the criminal justice system. Her book alleges rampant sexism, racism and the mishandling of the largest serial killer investigation in Canadian history. The title is That Lonely Section of Hell: The Botched Investigation of a Serial Killer Who Almost Got Away (Greystone $32.95). She’ll be appearing at this year’s Vancouver Writers Festival. 978-1-177164-093-0
