Robert Pickton's brother denies any knowledge of serial killer's crimes

January 10, 2014 - 12:29 PM

VANCOUVER - The brother of serial killer Robert Pickton says he had no idea sex workers were being taken to his family's property near Vancouver and murdered.

The children of several women whose remains or DNA were found on Pickton's property in Port Coquitlam have filed lawsuits against Pickton, Pickton's brother, David, and police.

David Pickton has now filed statements of defence, denying any knowledge of what his brother was doing.

He says he had no idea his brother was a danger to women who visited the Pickton property.

The statements of defence also deny allegations that David Pickton lied for his brother after Robert Pickton was accused of attempting to murder a sex worker in 1997.

David Pickton is also fighting an unrelated lawsuit, in which he is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in the early 1990s, and he's denying those allegations, as well.
