Family wants B.C. authorities to charge Robert Pickton for daughter’s death

APTN National News
The family of a young woman who went missing in Vancouver wants answers as to why her remains went undetected for more than a decade.

Stephanie Pineault went missing in 1997.

In 2003, her DNA was discovered on convicted killer Robert Pickton’s farm. But police said there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Pickton with her death.

As it turns out, her remains were also found, but were kept in a police storage locker for more 11-years.

APTN’s Tina House tells us what happened.
