Serial killer victims 7x more likely to be indigenous
Canada has a lot of problems when it comes to serial killers. Vancouver's police force is already looking pretty bad for having let William Pickton operate for years, due mainly to police indifference and negligence. And the infamous "Trail of Tears" where indigenous women have gone missing in droves is probably mostly due to various serial killers.
Canada is a wonderful country, but its law enforcement ignores the deaths of indigenous women across the board, to a shocking extent - and serial killers know it. An indigenous woman in Canada is seven times more likely to be killed by a serial killer than her white female counterpart.
In one recent case, serial killer Traigo Andretti (born Dylon Harold Grubb) deliberately preyed on First Nations women by cruising a free voicemail system looking for women who "sounded cute" and leaving them messages. The voicemail system is designed to provide a safety net for impoverished women who do not have cell phones or home phones. It allows them to apply for jobs and government assistance, they simply have to call into the line to pick up their messages.
Andretti learned the voicemail system's prefix, and spent hours dialing random extensions. When he found one he liked, he left them a message.
The Globe and Mail recently launched an investigation into missing and murdered indigenous women, and their results are dismaying. It is likely that there are multiple active serial killers in Canada who are preying on these women, and the RCMP seems to be indifferent at best.
