NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. -- Two deformed bullets found inside the bisected skulls of Sereena Abotsway and Mona Wilson could not be conclusively linked to any of the .22-calibre weapons found on Robert Pickton's Port Coquitlam, B.C., farm, a retired RCMP sergeant said yesterday.

Bill Ziegler, an expert in firearms and tool mark damage, testified at Pickton's murder trial Monday about the cut marks that he discovered on the bisected skulls of Andrea Joesbury, Abotsway and Wilson, as well as damage to heel bones, vertebrae and jaws.

In cross-examination yesterday he was asked about the cellophane wrapper that had been found around the barrel of a .22-calibre gun that also had a dildo attached to the end of the barrel.

He had suggested on Monday that heat damage to the cellophane indicated the cellophane was on the barrel when the gun was fired.

But under cross-examination he agreed that he had no way of knowing that and the cellophane could have been put on the barrel after the gun was fired.

He also agreed that even though the gun was seized with the dildo and cellophane attached to the barrel, there was no damage to the dildo when it was found.

Ziegler was asked about a .22-calibre rifle found on another Pickton property near the Pickton farm.

The rifle was eliminated as firing the bullet found in Wilson's skull but the two bullets - one found in Wilson's skull, the other in Abotsway's skull - could not be confirmed or eliminated as having come from the .22-calibre gun that had the dildo attached.

Pickton is being tried on six counts of first-degree murder.
