Who Was the Mad Trapper of Rat River?


Recommended Posts

I'm just stumbled upon this interesting and somewhat creepy story about the 'Mad Trapper of Rat River'. I've never heard of this man, and the story before:. 

''In 1931, what started as a simple knock on the door from police quickly spiraled, as one man on the lam sparked the largest manhunt in Canada's history, generated a media frenzy, caused the wider adoption of a new technology, and resulted in a brutal, anonymous ending — one that could now see a resolution of sorts thanks to DNA testing.

But "Albert Johnson" was most likely an alias and, to this day, the Mad Trapper of Rat River has not been identified
