Mad Trapper of Rat River

Post by Guest on Mon 23 Aug 2010 - 17:42

Karen and everyone,

Have you ever studied the case of the Mad Trapper of Rat River. He was the unidentified subject of the biggest manhunt in Canadian History.

All we have are death photos and aliases so almost eighty years later we still don't know who he was. It reminds me of Mary Kelly. DNA eliminated several candidates but did not identify a living relative.

He used various aliases like Peterson, Johnson, and Nelson. So none of the names may be reliable for identification.

From what I remember, Mary Jane only changed her name to Marie Jeanette, without changing her last name, so I think her name is reliable.

At least half a dozen people claim him as an ancestor, I only know of one or two online who made the same claim about Mary Kelly, and she likely had children while he likely didn't.

This is a great story and the subject of a Charles Bronson movie, Death Hunt.

It would be so easy to find clues to the Trapper's identity with genetic databases available online through genealogical sites. The raw data of his DNA can be uploaded and compared to a million profiles.

Hundreds of cousin matches are sure to turn up. Then it's only a matter of reviewing the cousins' family trees to find the missing link.
