Scariest Serial Killers – Episode 3

Welcome, fellow demons, to episode three of the Scariest Serial Killers.

Today, we take a look at Charles Ng. There’s a lot to know about Charles, and you can read all about his run ins with the law (automatic weapons, explosives, etc.) I am going to focus on the most disturbing tidbits that I came across.

First off – he was hiding in Fish Creek Park in Calgary, AB, Canada. Yes. Fish Creek Park. I said it. Since I am born and raised in Calgary, there is sure to be at least one other person that will read this and be shocked. He was hiding in a lean to in one of the most beautiful nature parks in our lovely city. Oh yes. You could have been out for a nature stroll and walked right by him, thinking to yourself he was just a poor, unfortunate homeless guy who found a place to rest.

You think that’s scary? Get this. He was only caught because of an urge to steal something. Due to his condition – Kleptomania – he could not resist this burning desire. He went into a store, stole a can of salmon, got caught in the act, and shot a security guard. Once captured, they figured out who he was. Over a can of salmon. Clearly it was the sickness of needing to steel and not the item itself.

Welcome, little demons, to episode two of the Scariest Serial Killers.

This feature will take you on a deep dive into some of the evilest minds lurching in the shadows. Serial killers are indeed a unique brand of killer. The extensive research I have done to fuel my old school detective versus serial killer series resulted in a clear identification of a set of traits, or components, that make up the breed of serial killer that I strive to capture.

This month, I’ve chosen a less talked about, yet horrifically sadistic killer — Robert Pickton, the pig farmer that lived in British Columbia. Through the lens of what composes a true serial killer, we will focus on his extensive repertoire, his ability to slip through the cracks, and his sick, twisted doings in his most sadistic fantasy.

Extensive Repertoire

Pickton became the suspect in the largest serial killer investigation in Canada. The total accounts of murder he was charged with kept creeping up, reaching twenty-seven, with another twelve later added. He later admitted to forty-nine accounts to an under-cover police officer. He complained about wanting to make it an even fifty, but he got sloppy and got caught.
