The Case That inspired “The County Road Cover Up” & “Mass Grave”

Robert William Pickton born in October 24, 1949 of Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada 

I’m sure, if you have been listing to my music for at least the last few years, you would have heard me mention the name, “Willie Pickton” or “Willie” and “Pickton”, in one form or another in a few of my songs. Although this case isn’t based in America, I thought it was an extraordinary story that’s very different from the ‘killer norms’ and more trendy names like Ted Bundy, etc. The fact that Pickton went on a span of crimes from early 1980’s-2002 amazes me and how he was able to fly under the radar for so long. However, he was eventually convicted in 2007 of second-degree murders of six women, and he was also the subject of interest of other cases which yielded evidence of even more murders. 

He ran a pig farm with his younger brother, David, that was passed down by generations of family. By the time he was arrested, Pickton had already transitioned the pig farm to utilize the land for different farming endeavors and would only raise a few pigs to sell to friends and neighbors.

Willie would drive a rusted pickup truck and invite drug addicted sex workers, also often referred to as “strawberries”, many of which came from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. To him, they were easy, vulnerable targets that he was able to lure in with the promise of money and/or drugs in exchange for sex. Once he gets them back to the “piggy palace”, as it was known, it was all downhill from there. In court documents, Pickton was known to feed his victims to some of his pigs as a means of disposal and getting rid of the evidence. He would usually use syringes filled with antifreeze to inject his victims which gave a five to ten minute window before they’ve succumbed. Pickton would also butcher and dispose any remnants of the victims throughout his putrid, junkyard-like property.



On the night he was arrested, he was set up to room with an undercover agent in hopes of coaxing more information from the boondock madman. The plan worked in law enforcement’s favor as he released details in the form of a wild, pessimistic confession since he admittedly failed to meet his ‘intended’ body count. The conversation with his cell mate was captured on audio and video.

Below is Part One of the actual jail cell footage and is a demented two-part series:

Part Two: 

I can’t pinpoint just one aspect of this case that caught my attention since there’s so many twists and turns; it’s an ‘almost’ never ending gory story. Mostly, in my opinion, he was a skinny, meek, unkempt and unsuspecting neighborly farmer, meanwhile, he was targeting the vulnerable and desperate women around town. I also don’t believe he did all of this by himself – he had confessed to killing 49 women; it just seems like a lot of work and coverup work for one individual. Then again, those you least suspect are sometimes the ultimate culprits.

Below is a photo of the missing women police believe Pickton may be connected with in their disappearances:

*As of March 2, 2006, the murder charge involving the unidentified victim has been lifted. Pickton refused to enter a plea on the charge involving this victim, known in the proceedings as Jane Doe, so the court registered a not-guilty plea on his behalf. “The count as drawn fails to meet the minimal requirement set out in Section 581 of the Criminal Code. Accordingly, it must be quashed”, wrote Justice James Williams. The detailed reasons for the judge’s ruling cannot be reported in Canada because of the publication ban covering this stage of the trial.

If you have time, watch the documentary below for a in-depth details of ROBERT “WILLIE” PICKTON:


First Verse:
Such a force of nature when it’s human vs beast,
They must of tore through her crotch and left the baby chewed up in leaves,
Traditional tribes survive sticking by code,
Whatever the wolves leave behind they pick off the bones,
To feed a snake they don’t need a lot,
You grab the rat by its legs and smack its head on a rock,
50 PETA supporters died because of their side talk,
When all’s you try to do was make music on the side walk,
He prayed to God the night she started having contractions,
3 months in was too early for this to happen,
In his palm kissing a dead fetus,
Now it hangs in his rear view whenever delivers pizzas,
When you fuck the dead your sperm automatically dies,
Cause there’s too many chemicals exploding inside,
That’s why she’s bloated and dry, who that be you ask,
They girl up in the tree with her organs pull out through her ass.

Lollygag, Lollygag, with all of your friends as much as you want,
You’re all completely dead inside, enjoy your high,

Second Verse:
They got her down and dragged her in the boat,
Her face ate away from the rain water and mosquitoes,
Like something out of “Predator” fed from her,
Left a nest of eggs in her back to keep them safe till they hatch,
There was a rotting smell in the breeze and,
It’s so strong you get a taste when you breathe in,
Music enlightens Satan when I sing songs,
Run a blade up your chest plate while the head barely hangs on,
They know what I did and want my bones and skin,
Started a fire in my yard and danced with dead chickens,
Pounding on drums during their voodoo rituals,
Planning to burn my house down in beliefs I am the devil,
I adore you more when your under my floor boards,
Where the lights dark getting covered with animal bite marks,
Close the shades and take no calls,
A Bible bed time story decaying in my walls.

Lollygag, Lollygag, with all of your friends as much as you want,
You’re all completely dead inside, enjoy your high,



Recently I went digging through some of my beats, and at this moment I have so many I don’t know what to do with. So I figured to try and get rid of some of them, maybe someone out there can put some of these beats to use. As of yesterday I started uploading new production, and I plan to continue to release them on my TRAKTRAIN Page & I’ll share a few to my SOUNDCLOUD.

The prices are very reasonable and all I ask is for Credit on whatever you use them on. The options are there on my traktrain page, everything from leasing a beat or buying the exclusive right to one. Once the rights to a beat is sold, that beat get’s taking out of the rotation and no longer available for sale.

It was in October 2016, the last thing anyone heard was “A Composition For Decomposition.” Dead silence, and then a few years pass, whimpers begin to surface every so often. Now that the dark month is here, there couldn’t be a better time for “WENT MISSING IN OCTOBER.” This project is decimated with disturbing Compositions & Instrumentals suitable for what’s to come within the months ahead.





There aren’t many interviews out there with myself since I’ve been M.I.A for a while now, but recently I was asked to join the POSSESSED RADIO PODCAST for an interview about the many different projects I’ve released and currently working on. During the interview,  there are two different songs that haven’t been released yet and only been put out through this interview. The first one you will hear that starts off the show is a track from Daydreams of Crime Scenes called “Distress Call.” The second song plays somewhere in the middle which is from “Went Missing In October” entitled “Recovered by Divers.” So check out the episode and find out some stuff that I’ve never talked about before until now. We dive into it all, and put people on to this episode and hear some of the new stuff that’s coming within the months ahead.
