OH tell me this isn't a movie about to be made.

I was going to do one more; make it an even 50," Pickton told the officer, who had been planted in the accused killer's cell and gained his trust.

A day earlier, Papin's three sisters cried and clutched each other's hands in court while the judge reviewed the testimony of witness Lynn Ellingson, who said she walked in on a blood-covered Pickton as Papin's body dangled from a chain in the farm's slaughterhouse.

The judge also reviewed testimony of prosecution witness Andrew Bellwood, who said Pickton told him how he strangled his alleged victims and fed their remains to his pigs.

Health officials once issued a tainted meat advisory to neighbors who might have bought pork from Pickton's farm, concerned the meat might have contained human remains.

Oh yeah, Robert Pickton has been a big news story in Canada since the cops started finding bodies back in 2002, and it kept growing as they dug up the farm over the following months. A real-life horror story about the worst serial killer in Canadian history. I'm pretty sure there has been some kind of TV movie. If not, it's inevitable.

I did read a detective novel a while back that clearly borrowed elements from the case. Set in British Columbia, it had a killer who picked up junkies and prostitutes in the seamier parts of Vancouver and hauled them back to his pig farm. Pretty much exactly what Pickton was doing. What wasn't fed to the pigs got hauled to the rendering plant, indistinguishable from the rest of the pig remains. Of course, the real story were the experimental Nazi superweapons in a mine on the farm, and that's where the similarity ends. Good book, actually.

Michael Slade's Swastika.  Yup: the pig farm material could have come straight out of Slade (which is saying a good bit about how bizarre it is) but obviously was inspired by the reality.

Who needs to make anything up?  The world is full of weirdness and extreme behaviour.

I will be very surprised if there is no movie.  Does the existence of Slade's book complicate acquiring the rights?

Just checked my copy of Swastika, and it has the usual disclaimer. Any resemblance is purely coincidental, so it clearly is in no way based on Pickton  Lookingup

I live in the south and we have pig farms in the area (yes they stick) but the old story is, if you ever want to get rid of a body just through it in a hog lot and it'll be gone in no time.
If a hog dies in a lot it'll be 90% gone inside of a day.

But of you don't have a hog lot take to the swamp and they'll be gone pretty fast there too. Not a trace.

What about the bones, or at least the larger ones like the femurs? Don't you still have to dispose of them? Or do the pigs eat those too?

Pig will crunch them like candy. A hog can get up to well over a 1000 lbs. and have some powerful jaws on them.
