On Scene
Inspired by one of the longest manhunts in Canadian history
by Kate Kading

Near a tiny town in northern Saskatchewan, it fell to Sergeant Walter Regitnig and his canine partner Bruce to track a killer. He’d hunted men before, but never one who’d murdered his best friend.

Speculation is a dangerous thing when dealing with someone's life.

What causes people to react the way they do? Say the things they say?

Fear. Anger. Mental instability. Revenge.

Sometimes there is no clear motive at all.

The absence of why is where speculation is born.

Speculation can kill a man.

On October 9, 1970, it killed two of them.

“If you want to be a dogman, you better be prepared for anything.”-Sgt. W.J. O. Regitnig (Reg. #17364)
