John Tornow: Villain or Victim?
To author Bill Lindstrom, John Tornow was a victim of circumstances, who barely recovered from measles as a small child. That disease left him with a lisp and an inferiority complex, and as a result, he preferred to live in solitude for most of his adult life. Lindstrom thinks there’s a question whether Tornow killed his nephews or if they were slain by someone else. He also questions some of the findings that Tornow was a mad killer, except to acknowledge that Tornow killed deputies during the final shootout as an undisputed fact. Thus, the title: Villain or Victim? Lindstrom blends history, mystery, tragedy and the beauty and solace of the wilderness to tell the story of an enigmatic wilderness man accused of heinous crimes.
