Cody Alan Legebokoff – The Prince George Killer Update

The following is an update on the criminal trial of Cody Alan Legebokoff aka the Prince George Killer.

In court August 26, 2014 in Prince George, British Columbia, Legebokoff claimed other men did the killing of the women he is charged with murdering. Legebokoff told the court that three other men who he would only name as X, Y and Z actually murdered three of the four women.

When pressed to give names, Legebokoff claimed he didn’t want to be known as a ‘rat’ inside prison.

“At that time, I didn’t expect to be what I actually did was murder. But now, sitting here charged with it, I don’t feel very good about it.”

To this date Montgomery’s body has not been found though her DNA was found in Legebokoff’s apartment after his arrest. The DNA was found on items that included clothing, bedsheets and an axe.

The court trial is ongoing and is expected to run up to eight months in length. If you have any information on these murders please contact your local police department or the RCMP.

Robert Pickton Prosecution Costs

Today has come news that the Robert Pickton prosecution has cost some $103 million and is still rising. Canada’s most prolific serial killer has also accounted for one of the most expensive trials in Canadian history – ranking right up there with the Air India trials and public hearings. And that is where the Pickton costs are still coming in.

Serial killer Robert Pickton is now serving life in prison and that too will of course cost taxpayers even more money. But still to be tabulated is the cost for the public inquiry which will be funded by the province of British Columbia. The public inquiry will delve into the whole affair including the police department’s handling of the case and all those missing women over so many years.

Pickton’s legal defence team cost taxpayers $12 million and the crown’s costs came in at around $9 million more. The bulk of the money was spent sorting through the vast Pickton farm for evidence of his crimes and the surrounding police investigation costs. Some of the money was recouped through the sale of Pickton’s assets. Robert Pickton attempted to appeal his six life sentences but was denied by the courts.
