Episode 98 – After a life long career as a notorious thief, safe cracker, international bank robber and jail break artist in 1913, charismatic Bloody Jack Krafchenko made his final score; the bank in his home town of Plum Coulee, Manitoba. During the daytime robbery the bank’s manager, H.M. Arnold was shot once and killed by the fleeing bandit. After a few days Krafchenko was apprehended in nearby Winnipeg. Before he was to  go on trial for his life, he escaped from prison again, using his as yet undiscovered cache of riches as leverage to bribe his own lawyer, a prison guard and two other men into assisting him.
