Hanson was a baker that owned a local doughnut shop...the anchorage police would go there to eat doughnuts and talk about the cases.. Hanson was listening! There was a cheesy movie made about it called “frozen ground” Everyone in AK knows Hanson story.

It was actually asserted by another author the Albert Fish was the inspiration but I would think the Harris, being the author, would know more than anyone else.
