New Developments at Pickton Inquiry



A disturbing new development at the Pickton inquiry. Lynn Frey, the step mother of one of the murder victims found on the Pickton farm, took the stand at the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry on Monday to insist she told Vancouver police about the farm belonging to killer Robert Pickton years before he was arrested.

Frey said after what she felt was "indifference" from Campbell River RCMP and the VPD, she finally found a "caring, compassionate" police officer, Vancouver Det. Const. Lori Shenher, who was assigned to missing persons.

"I gave all my information to Lori," said Frey, including details of the Pickton farm and the rampant street rumours about the wood chipper. She said Shenher scolded her for going to the Pickton farm and told her to "leave police work to us."

But lawyer David Crossin, acting for the Vancouver Police Union and Shenher, told Frey in cross-examination that Shenher "has no record in her notes" of ever being told by Frey about the pig farm. Frey replied, to loud applause from the audience, that police were covering up.

"There's a big cover up here, I know what I said," Frey insisted.

The lawyer for the Vancouver Police Union said Shenher "has no record in her notes" of ever being told by Frey about the pig farm. Wow. That is disheartening. Like who's side is this guy on? I am starting to wonder if the cover up involves more than indifference over missing sex trade workers.

We know that the Hells Angels attended parties on site at Piggy's Palace. We know they tried to deny this but witnesses confirmed they were there all the time. In fact the court was told the Hells Angels ran a grow op on site. But there's more.

Some claim police officers also attended parties at Piggy's palace. At first I sluffed that off as nonsense, but now I'm beginning to wonder. Corruption can enter any organization. We saw it infiltrate the bench in Prince George. Judge Ramsay was convicted of violent sexual assault of under age native women. There was a huge cover up of that case before it went to trial and he was convicted.

There were even allegations at the time some police officers were involved in the Ramsay case. I recall reading about how one of the police officers who was accused of being involved, sued the RCMP for investigating him. I kid you not. Surely if the allegation is out there, investigating that allegation is in everyone's best interest.

The Globe and Mail is reporting that the inquiry will hear that off-duty officers “frequented” Piggy’s Palace, Mr. Ward said, without elaborating on whether the police were undercover or not. Those are some pretty significant allegations.

The are some pretty extreme and dramatic allegations of police officers involved in raping prostitutes and doing all sorts of twisted things. If I'm not mistaken the Picktom inquiry recently heard testimony from one witness who claimed she was a prostitute and was blackmailed by members of the VPD forcing her to have sex with them or they would arrest her. I am concerned how deep the cover up has gone. Evidently those allegations at the time fell on deaf ears.

It reminds me of the story about RCMP officers getting caught trying to smuggle a prostitute onto a cruise ship in a hockey bag during the Olympics. That one was denied and swept under the carpet. Yet there were two officers "investigated" for sexual assault of other female officers during the Olympics. We even had our own Colonel Wing Nut out in Revelstoke several years ago.

A reporter recently said they distinctly remember hearing on the radio news of a huge Hells angels drugs and guns bust around the time Pickton was arrested. All of a sudden, those charges were dropped and Pickton was given up along with the location of several bodies. Robert's brother Dave, who was a Hells Angels associate at the time, according to Robert's lawyer, knew where the bodies were buried and told the police shortly thereafter.

  1. Corruption on the VPD is really nothing new.

    Back in the mid-late 90's there were "rumors" of bike cops robbing hippie grower types in from the islands on Granville or in Victory Park. A dial-a-dope driver who was released from a traffic stop after the officers confiscated his cash and his product. The VPD officer who retired and became a grower himself. Don't remember the year but wasn't there a female VPD officer who went to a party at East End's club house? She kept her job, amazingly enough.

    This didn't start yesterday though. It's part of the VPD culture, a dishonoured tradition going back decades.

    "The Vancouver Police was at the centre of one of the biggest scandals in the city's history in 1955. Feeling frustrated that blatant police corruption was being ignored by the local media, a reporter for the Vancouver Daily Province switched to a Toronto-based tabloid, Flash. He wrote a sensational article alleging corruption at the highest levels of the police department in Vancouver, specifically, that a pay-off system had been implemented whereby gambling operations that paid the police were left alone and those that did not were harassed. After the Flash article appeared in Vancouver, the allegations could no longer be ignored, and a Royal Commission, the Tupper Commission, was struck to hold a public inquiry. Chief Constable Walter Mulligan fled to the United States, another officer from the upper ranks committed suicide, and still another attempted suicide rather than face the inquiry.[6] Other scandals and public inquiries plagued the force before and since this one, dubbed "The Mulligan Affair," but none were so dramatic."

    Speaking of payoffs, could that be why a certain weed selling operation mentioned in this blog does business unimpeded? Stranger things have happened. Like a pig farm full of dead crack addict hookers who disappear by the score one after the other while VPD can't find it's ass with both hands. That's pretty strange.

    Someone in Hollywood North should make a not-so-fictional movie about this town. They could call it "Vancouver Confidential". Off the record, on the QT, and strictly hush-hush... ;)

  2. There was a female customs agent who was found to have been partying with the Hells Angels and ended up keeping her job. 1955? Wow, that’s a long tradition.

  3. Leonard P. Kompa is the Worst Lawyer in the World. Court is Adjourned, Kompa goes to Lunch and you go to Jail!
    I hired Leonard P. Kompa after I fired Roy Cooper Dickey. The biggest mistake I have ever made in my life. Leonard is a brilliant salesman, selling himself as your savior lawyer. He tells you he will fight for your legal rights, a fair trial and duty of fairness. Leonard is a liar, a fraud and has become mentally unfit from working long hours. He is mentally disabled and physically unfit to defend you or anyone. He gets all his funding from legal aid, pretending to defend you and makes Buddy Deals with the Crown Prosecutor. LEONARD IS A QUITER, HE QUITS ON YOU. Leonard is not a lawyer you would recommend to anyone. Unfortunatly, I recommended him to several Bro's, because I felt sorry for him. The Bro's were very disappointed in my referral of such a complete Moron and fired him to hire other lawyers. While Leonard is losing your trial, he doesn't even listen to your critical advise and to adjourn your matter for two weeks to review your defense. He does not tell the truth about your impaired life and disability. How you became a targeted individual, impaired with illegal direct energy micro wave weapons technology, the RCMP have targeted you with.

    The fat lazy moron, won't even lend you $5.00 for lunch at Douglas College when your broke. You watch him stuffing his fat face with the lunch special, while you go without lunch. The epitome of failure is to hire Leonard P. Kompa, to be your lawyer. I have had him investigated by the Legal Aid Society, the Provincial Courts and the Law Society of British Columbia. I am waiting for them to respond to my complaints. Please do not make the same mistakes I did by hiring a Carpet Bagger Lawyer who should be selling wheel chairs, mobility carts and life insurance to the handicapped. The irony of having a very bad lawyer is you talk, you plan your defense, you go to trial and you lose. Court is adjourned, your lawyer goes to lunch and you go to jail.
