A Break in the Case?

Over the past couple of weeks, the Globe and Mail has featured stories about the Thomson mystery, inspired primarily by the release of Roy MacGregor’s book Northern Light: The Enduring Mystery of Tom Thomson. Naturally, the most substantial story is provided by MacGregor himself, who writes about recent forensic work that provides proof that… well, it doesn’t provide proof of much. MacGregor documents the “CSI-style” work of a dentist, orthodontist, and archaeologist, who based their investigation on a previously undisclosed image of what is purported to be Tom’s skull (dug up in 1956). Read all about it here, but don’t expect to get any answers about how Tom died, and don’t expect to see any cool CSI-inspired visualizations of Tom’s reconstructed head with a hole in it.
