The Bastard of Fort Stikine: The Hudson’s Bay Company and the Murder of John McLoughlin Jr. – Debra KomarInternationally renowned forensic anthropologist Debra Komar will launch her latest book, The Bastard of Fort Stikine: The Hudson’s Bay Company and the Murder of John McLoughlin Jr. (Goose Lane Editions), at Confederation Centre Public Library in Charlottetown on May 5 at 7 pm. Launch will include her presentation, “Murder at Fort Stikine: Solving a Centuries-Old Crime in the Hudson’s Bay Company.”

Is it possible to reach back in time and solve a murder more than 170 years after it was committed? Just after midnight on April 21, 1842, John McLoughlin Jr.—a chief trader for the Hudson’s Bay Company—was shot dead inside the walls of Fort Stikine. The body was never autopsied, there was no police investigation, and the case never saw the inside of a courtroom. Using modern forensic science, including ballistics, virtual autopsy, and crime scene reconstruction, Debra Komar unlocks the mystery of what really happened the night John McLoughlin died.

“History buffs and armchair detectives are sure to enjoy this absorbing time-machine tale of murder, mayhem, intrigue, and justice denied.”—David A. Gibb, author of Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Colonel Russell Williams

Debra Komar is the author of The Ballad of Jacob Peck and The Lynching of Peter Wheeler, which use forensic methods to re-investigate historical crimes. A Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and a practising forensic anthropologist for over twenty years, she has investigated human rights violations for the United Nations and Physicians for Human Rights, and has testified as an expert witness in The Hague and across North America. She is the author of many scholarly articles and a textbook, Forensic Anthropology: Contemporary Theory and Practice. www.gooselane.com
