Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Capture of Albert Johnson (Wilf Carter)
I was the minister at All Saints' Anglican Church in Aklavik 1984-88 and while I was there I performed the funeral service for Lazarus Sittichinli who was an RCMP special constable on the patrol that shot the Mad Trapper. Lazarus lived to the age of 97 and was an altogether amazing man. He told me many amazing stories about his life in the bush, but the Mad Trapper story was not one of them. I had to get that one from others. Lazarus did not want to talk about it, at least not to me.
