In a belated effort at damage control the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) ‘officially’ released a 408-page report entitled “Missing Women Investigation Review” on Friday, August 20, 2010 that was in fact previously leaked to the media. The report documents the inexplicable amount of failures of the VPD and RCMP investigations into the missing and murdered women of the downtown Eastside and the outright failure of the police forces’ to recognize compelling evidence against the main suspect in the case nearly two years before the arrest and eventual conviction of serial killer Robert Pickton resulting in the senseless deaths of additional women. Vancouver Police Deputy Chief Constable Doug LePard spent years compiling the report and his findings will result in numerous political ramifications. Battered Women’s Support Services has made a direct appeal to the Province of British Columbia for a public inquiry.
