This is news?
While I would never argue that what passes for journalism these days is remotely similar to the lessons I learned as a copy boy in the news room of the Montreal Star in the early ’70s, one would at least hope that a story saying the police investigated all possible leads in a massive serial killer file is, well, not news.
That’s what they do. Dave Pickton had access to the farm where all the DNA and body parts were found. Was he a suspect? Duh! Does he remain a suspect? Duh!
Dave Pickton is an aquaintaince of some nefarious people. Is that an aspect of the investigation? Duh!
C’mon folks. A lot of bad shit happened on that property. We know this because the DNA of over 20 women who were reported missing was found there. Is it not likely that the investsigation that has consumed millions of taxpayer dollars in police resources may have focussed on more than one person a reality or likelihood?
There’s a lot of aspects of this case as yet unreported. One would hope the editors of the mainstream media would understand this and not make routine police work the story. Well, one would hope.
