As you can read in our previous post, Frank Hansen, the man who originally exhibited the Minnesota Iceman in the 1960s and 70s, revealed in a 1970 article in Saga Magazine that he himself was the one who shot the creature while hunting in the deep woods of Minnesota.
Keep that in mind as you read this next story (click on the link below), which details some interviews with Frank Hansen in his final years. If the following account is true, why would Hansen in his later years go back to his original story about the mysterious California millionaire who supposedly was the real owner of the “Creature in Ice?”
This is a must-read for anyone who wants to hear Frank’s final words on the Minnesota Iceman. It is truly fascinating, but ultimately raises more questions than it answers…
CORRECTION: In response to all the news reports that I had purchased the Minnesota Iceman from the family of Frank Hansen, that is absolutely not true. I purchased it from another man, who purchased it from Hansen’s family shortly after Frank passed away 10 years ago. I apologize to the Hansen family for any undue attention this brings their way.
