Robert Edward Brown | Possible Calgary Area Serial Killer???
« on: December 15, 2008, 02:24:43 AM »
Read the pdf file attached.

Robert Edward Brown was a junk yard worker and pig farmer when arrested in 1983. He killed 2 different girls, one in HIgh River and one in Okatoks in 1981. He admited to 7 more murders.

I never heard of this guy or these murders, but police say he moved to Alberta in 1977 and is not considered a suspect in the highway murders in BC.

This is a person I want to do more digging on, was he ever convicted of those other murders? What happened to him?

Never heard of this guy, would like to know who his victims are? Male, female? Were they adults, children? Did he go after STW's. I know Calgary has a lot of deaths over the years.

Hi there,

First post...in regards to your question of what happened to this guy, I found this article: 

http://www.insideprison.com/Kingston-Penitentiary.asp 

Read the part under "Hostage Takings & Riots", there is one small sentence about a Robert Edward Brown who was knifed to death in 1986 by a fellow inmate.  It is a poorly worded sentence as it is unclear (Brown or the inmate who stabbed him) which one was serving time for murder from a sentence stemming from 1983, which is when Brown was arrested.  Two questions remain, is this the same Robert Edward Brown and would a murderer in Alberta be shipped off to a max security prison in Ontario?

I am referring this thread as I am new to the Kelly Cook case where there was a link to this thread.  I intend on making a post about soon in regards to a few theories I have come up with in regards to the Kelly Cook case.  This is a great site with tons of great information for us "wannabe" sleuths (no disrespect to anyone, I consider myself to be a wannabe sleuth-haha).  I cannot believe how respectful people are of other people's posts compared to other sites I have visited; someone suggests a theory and they get torn apart, but not here.  This is great to see & read as who am I to discount anyone's theories.  I may not post often, but I will be hanging around reading!
