Inmate brutally attacks serial killer who bragged about slaying dozens of women in prison

Robert Pickton, a Canadian serial killer who has gained notoriety, is currently on life support following an attack by another inmate at the maximum-security prison where he is serving his life sentence.

According to the Correctional Service of Canada, Pickton, who is 74 years old, was reportedly involved in a “major assault” on May 19. However, the details regarding his current condition and the specifics of the attack have not been disclosed.

According to a spokesperson for the agency, ensuring the safety and security of institutions is of utmost importance, and as such, an investigation is currently underway to determine what occurred. The officials have already identified the attacker and are taking appropriate actions, as stated in an earlier statement.

According to a report from the Vancouver Sun, Robert Pickton, the convicted serial killer, was attacked while being held at Port-Cartier Institution, a maximum-security prison in Quebec. The incident occurred when a fellow inmate assaulted him by striking his head with a broken broom-like handle at around 2pm.

The inmate who attacked Pickton is believed to have previously been placed in solitary confinement for targeting other inmates. However, he was eventually released and placed in the same unit as Pickton.

The Hospital of the Child Jesus in Quebec City received the serial killer after the attack. The attorney representing Pickton has not yet responded to the request for comment from The Independent.

In a trial held in British Columbia in 2007, the murderer was found guilty of killing six women: Sereena Abotsway, Mona Wilson, Andrea Joesbury, Marnie Frey, Georgina Papin, and Brenda Wolfe. He received a life sentence without the chance of full parole for 25 years. Now, in February, he has become eligible to apply for parole.

According to a report by the Vancouver Sun, families of the victims have been actively opposing a police application that aims to destroy evidence connected to the cases against Pickton. Their rationale is that the evidence might prove valuable in the future if advancements in DNA technology enable authorities to link him to the murders of other women.

In 2016, Pickton self-published a memoir which Amazon promptly removed from its platform.
