The Untold Story Of The "Wildman of the Wynooche"

Recommended Posts



VILLAIN OR VICTIM? is a historical novel of the "Wildman of the Wynooche," who was alleged to have killed six people, starting with his 19-year-old twin nephews, William and John Bauer in 1911. 


The suspicion was laid to Tornow and it touched off a 19-month manhunt, the longest in Pacific Northwest history, before he was killed in a firefight on April 16, 1913. 


This story attempts to unveil as much of the truth as we know, based on 28 years of research, talking to descendants of neighbors, friends and relatives of the Tornow family.
