Robert Pickton Lawsuit: Stephanie Lane's Family Sue RCMP, VPD

VANCOUVER - The line up of family members suing serial killer Robert Pickton and police for failing to investigate the reports of missing women is growing longer.

The son of Stephanie Lane has filed a separate lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court alleging that the Vancouver police and the RCMP negligently contributed to Lane's death and her son's suffering.

Lane went missing in early 1997, just over eight months after her son — whose name is withheld — was born.

The DNA of the 20-year-old Metis woman was discovered on Pickton's farm five years later.

The lawsuit claims both the Vancouver Police Department and the RCMP were aware a serial killer was attacking sex workers in the Downtown Eastside, but failed to investigate.

The children of four other women whose remains were found on Pickton's farm launched separate lawsuits in May.

None of the allegations in the lawsuits have been proven in court.
