Serial Killers Trivia Questions

1. In which Canadian province was Robert Pickton arrested, for the murders of over 50 prostitutes?

From Quiz
Serial Killers in Canada

Answer: British Columbia

Robert Pickton was arrested in British Columbia, Canada in 2002. The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) served a search warrant at Pickton's pig farm. The warrant was for the possession of illegal firearms. When the RCMP investigated, human remains were found in one of the slaughter houses on the farm. The complete property eventually was excavated and tagged as one of the largest crime scenes in Canada. Robert Pickton was accused of killing well over fifty women. These crimes most likely occurred between the years of 1983 to 2002. As DNA from this vast crime scene is matched to victims who have been missing over the years, more charges against Pickton are beginning to stack up.

From Quiz The Case of The Spokane Killer

Answer: East Upriver Drive

On Thursday, February 22, 1990, at 8:30 a.m., the body of 26 year-old Yolanda Sapp was found on East Upriver Drive, an embankment near the Spokane River. Sapp was well known as a prostitute and heavily into drugs. She was last seen on February 20, 1990. An autopsy of her body indicated that she was shot several times, one being at point blank range. When Yolanda's body was found, police were called to the 4100 block of East Upriver Drive, and they conducted a thorough search of the area, but found no evidence or any of her personal belongings. The police determined, after interviewing several acquaintances, that Yolanda was last seen wearing black jeans, black slip-on shoes, black t-shirt and panties, and a tan-colored rabbit fur coat. They also determined that Yolanda had been wearing several bracelets, nine to be exact, rings, a sliver necklace, and was carrying a denim purse. None of Yolanda's belongings were found where she was discovered. Was this murder a one time only deal? Or, was a serial killer in Spokane's midst? Only time would tell...

On February 15, 1999, Carole Sund, her 15 year old daughter Juli, and their 16 year old foreign exchange student, Silvina Pelosso, arrived back at Cedar Lodge (the lodge they were staying during their vacation) after a long day of sight seeing. They went to the lodge's service desk and rented videos. They then retired for the night, and planned to watch the videos before they went to bed. Shortly after going back to their room they heard a knock on the door. The person on the other side said he was from maintenance and that he was there to fix a leak behind the wall in the bathroom. When Carole answered the door, she was met by Cary Stayner, who held a gun in his hand. He said he wouldn't hurt them if they cooperated. Carole obeyed and let him in. Once inside, Cary tied them up. He killed two of the women in the room, and transported the other, and the bodies, to a remote location. Cary then walked back to the car and drove into Tuolumne County. His plan was to dump the car with the bodies of Carole and Silvina inside. But because it was so dark, he high grounded the car on a tree stump and couldn't get the car off. He decided to leave the car there and walk to a pay phone where he called a cab to take him back to the Cedar Lodge.

Emma Elizabeth Smith lived at 18 George Street in Spitalfields. She was a common prostitute who claimed she was a widow with a son and a daughter. On April 2, 1888, four months before the first official Ripper victim, Emma Smith was mutilated in Buck's Row, 300 yards from where police would later find Mary Ann Nichols. Smith was alive when she was taken to the hospital, but died the next day from peritonitis. The police theorized that Smith was the victim of a gang who was terrorizing and mistreating prostitutes. Was Emma Smith the first Ripper victim? Considering that her injuries were almost identical to the murders that followed, I personally believe that Scotland Yard is correct in saying that Emma Smith was the first victim of Jack. Why he was never credited with Smith's murder, one can only wonder.
