VANCOUVER — Corporal Jim Brown has worked from the RCMP’s Coquitlam detachment for decades. He played a small but important role in the Mounties’ investigation of Robert (Willie) Pickton, the serial killer who murdered women and disposed of their bodies on a pig farm just a few kilometres from the same Coquitlam detachment.
Cpl. Brown had an alter ego: A boot-wearing, knife-wielding sadomasochist. In a shocking story published Thursday, Vancouver Sun columnist Ian Mulgrew described several photographs made available for public viewing on Internet websites catering to bondage and sadomasochism enthusiasts. There is Cpl. Brown, “posing in sexually explicit torture images reminiscent of [Pickton’s] crimes.”
The veteran Mountie “appears to wear only his regulation-issue Mountie boots and an erection as he wields a huge knife and a bound naked woman cringes in terror,” writes Mr. Mulgrew, referring to just some of the photos in existence. The Mountie is also depicted grappling with the naked woman, and slashing at her with his knife.
