Back Pack Taken?

Postby Holly G » Mon Dec 10, 2012 1:21 am

Alaskan man accuses Chris McCandless of ransacking his cabin. He says Chris must have followed his dog sled trail in the snow that April to find the bus, and later his cabin. Of course, if CM could have followed that trail, anyone else could have followed it as well.

Then, he claims that he removed CM's backpack from the bus two weeks after his body was discovered there. Years later, he found several ID belonging to CM and $300 inside a hidden pocket of the pack.

CM's story immediately got wide attention esp. in Alaska, with the article written for Outside magazine. The man had no excuse for not turning the pack in to proper authorities.

Woah what!!! That's crazy why would he not give authorities the backpack. Is it really true that he had money in a hidden pocket? I don't think Chris had money at all after he burned the money he did have. The only money he actually did have was when he earned it by working.
