Video of comedian Richard Lett performing The Ballad Of Bobby Pickton.





The brother of one of Vancouver’s missing women reacted with outrage yesterday to a song about Robert Pickton that has surfaced on the popular website youtube.com.



The video, entitled The Ballad Of Bobby Pickton, features comic Richard Lett singing about the Pickton murders.



"I found it disgusting," said Ernie Crey, whose sister Dawn Crey disappeared in December 2000.



Her DNA was later found on Pickton’s Port Coquitlam farm, but no charges were ever laid.



"It’s ill considered and bad form. I’m very disappointed that he would stoop to such a thing."



The song is set to the tune Ten Little Indians.



The chorus runs: "One little, two little, three little victims. Four little, five little, six little victims. Seven little, eight little, nine little victims. Ten little Pickton victims."



Crey said it’s possible the video may be in breach of the publication ban that surrounded the case. He planned to alert Crown prosecutor Michael Petrie and defence lawyer Peter Ritchie to its existence.
