Episode 103 – In this episode we’re heading to the Inuvik area of the Northwest Territories, near Fort McPherson. Along the Rat River in the summer of 1931 a stranger was first seen by two indigenous men canoeing on the river. He was a stranger who, save for a short visit to town for supplies, kept to himself. The man was later accused of interfering with the traps of other hunters and trapping without a license. When RCMP went to investigate hell broke loose, culminating in attempted murder of one RCMP constable and the murder of another at the hands of the man. The man, known by the alias Albert Johnson, lead RCMP on a six week chase across the frozen tundra before he was taken down. His true identity remains a mystery.
