The 1935 George Weyerhaueser Kidnapping w/ Bryan Johnston - A True Crime History Podcast

On March 25, 1935, little George Weyerhaueser, heir to one of the biggest fortunes in America, was kidnapped on his way home from school in Tacoma, Washington. His abductors would keep him manacled in a pit in the middle of the forest as they negotiated a $200,000 ransom with his frantic family. What soon followed would be the largest manhunt in the history of the Pacific Northwest. My guest is Bryant Johnston, author of "Deep in the Woods: The 1935 Kidnapping of Nine-Year-Old George Weyerhaeuser, Heir to America's Mightiest Timber Dynasty." His book, out on September 14th, 2021, is available for pre-order now. More information can be found on his website: https://www.bryanrjohnston.com/
