Jeremy Hainsworth of Glacier Media has a series of articles on the mishandling of Robert Pickton victim’s remains.

Some of the remains of convicted B.C. serial killer Robert Pickton’s victims were allegedly cremated concurrently, cremated without informed family consent, mislaid and, in one case, heated and smashed with a mallet.

Records and interviews have revealed that the province’s chief coroner, a provincial investigator whose orders were partly reversed, and two licensed undertakers allege that cremations did not meet standards – allegations the regional coroner and local undertaker involved refute.

An investigation by Glacier Media suggest a pattern of confusing handling of victim remains, along with complaints about communication to the victims’ families they feel has deepened their trauma.
