Homesteader and farmer Daniel Lough heard terrified shouting coming from his neighbour’s farm in the early morning hours of June 20, 1918. He bolted across the road, and after discovering the cabin set ablaze, rushed by horseback to the village of Grande Prairie to fetch the authorities. This crime scene, the Snyder farm, was the first discovery in what would become Alberta’s largest unsolved mass murder.Episode Highlights Land Acknowledgement and Intro: 0:00:10 Prologue: 0:01:27 The Night-Time Habits of Daniel Lough: 0:04:51 The Burning Cabin: 0:06:04 Daniel’s Ride to Town: 0:10:53 Police Are Notified: 0:13:14 The Gun: 0:17:38 The Victims: 0:19:35 Additional Evidence: 0:24:20 The Public Reaction: 0:26:03 Next Episode: 0:29:34 Credits: 0:29:52 Sources & Historical Material Alberta History - Murder on the Prairie: Who Killed Six Immigrant Settlers? by Dr. David Leonard [link] The Grande Prairie of the Great Northland - The Evolution of a County 1805 - 1951 by Dr. David Leonard [link] Foulest of Murders: The Story of Grande Prairie's 1918 Unsolved Murder of 6 by Wallace Lloyd Tansem [link] Daniel Lough Criminal Case File, Alberta Provincial Archives Snyder Inquest File, Alberta Provincial Archives Support Blood on the PrairieIf you’re enjoying Blood on the Prairie and would like to support it and the creators, here are a few ways you can help.
