Long Pig: Odin "Meatman" Quincannon is alive and well

Robert Pickton, the Man Suspected of Having Killed Over 60 Vancouver Sex Workers

A special team investigating the cases arrived and found body parts in a freezer, as well as purses and other personal effects later linked to the missing.... Not one body has been found intact, and a wood chipper and Mr. Pickton's pigs are believed to have devoured much of the evidence. [...] The local papers have reported about the feet, teeth, and bones. Everyone knows about the body parts, the pigs, the wood chipper, the freezers. [...]

Seven or so years ago, a longshoreman went with an "old friend/coworker from the railway" to a "Halloween bash [at Piggy's Palace]. I arrived at the party at about 9:00 p.m. It was dark and raining and muddy, and there were lots of motorcycles, old cars, and a big pig roasting on a spit. There were kids in costumes, some dressed as witches. The little kids were running around, and playing in the dark. There wasn't much light. There were lots of women, who looked like hookers.... The party spilled all over the grounds and there were people in the house and in the trailer doing the wild thing. I recall walking by a shack with a 40-watt light bulb hanging over the door and machinery was running inside. Here, I got a death chill. The hairs raised on the back of my neck and my feet froze to the ground. I didn't want to be there anymore, so I left and walked home." [...]

"I was about to eat the pig, but when I saw [Robert Pickton tearing apart] the pig with his hands, I decided not to.... His hands were dirty."

The unusable remains of the pigs Robert slaughtered and served to his friends and neighbors were taken by truck to a rendering plant near the DES called West Coast Reduction Ltd. Many are certain that the partial remains of the murdered sex workers were also trucked to West Coast Reduction Ltd. The plant turns animal bones, guts, fish, blood, pig entrails, used restaurant grease, and, now many believe, the remains of sex workers into a number of consumer products, like lipstick base, soaps, shampoos, and perfumes.

    "Never trust a man with a pig farm."

    "You're always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together. And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, 'as greedy as a pig.'"

      When I was ~5yrs old, my grandmother nearly had a cow when she caught me at her pigsty fence. She beat the fear of pork into me.

        Many children of over-religious parents can say the same thing.

        We really need fewer sexually dysfunctional people in this world...

        Please tip your waitress!

      While that's obviously the source of the pig idea, I feel he must have also watched Fargo for the wood chipper.

      And once again we can blame movies/television/video games for all the world'd evil.

      • Only but neither movie was release in the 1980s when he started killing people this way.


      • jwz says:

        But see, "Snatch" just wasn't all that good.

        I demand that you illiterates immediately go out and read "Preacher" by Garth Ennis. WTF ok?

        • violentbloom says:

          I liked snatch...at least compared to almost all released movies.

          The discovery channel now has a whole new bunch of crime shows...to teach you how to kill people and not get caught. At least I think that's what they're trying to do.
          Certainly the people they catch seem to be idiots.
          The two themes:
          Don't shit where you live.
          -Best to kill a stranger.
          -in this case best to feed the body to someone else's pigs.
          Blood never comes out
          -painting/carpeting/tiling over it doesn't help.

        • jlindquist says:

          You misspelled "immediately go out and read "Preacher" by Garth Ennis". Hope this helps.

    Damn. This gave me flashbacks to the Broken movie, again.

    sex worker shampoo!

  6. billemon says:

    Reminds me horribly of an episode of CSI :)

    Actually the scariest part is they make lipstick out of the remains ... that's got to be the best kind of recycling ;)

  7. zapevaj says:

    I like the fact that some batches of lipstick may now contain the rendered fat of dead hookers. That cheers me up, for some reason.

    (Um, insert "Fight Club" soapmaking reference here.)
