The Redpath Mansion Mystery (Canada, 1901)

The Redpath Mansion Mystery refers to a tragic event that occurred on June 13, 1901, in Montreal, Canada.

Ada Maria Redpath, a 59-year-old widow, and her son, Jocelyn Clifford Redpath, 26, were found shot to death in Ada’s bedroom in the Redpath Mansion.

The Redpaths were among the wealthiest families in Canada, having amassed their fortune through significant infrastructure projects like the Lachine Canal.

The case attracted widespread attention due to the family’s prominence, but despite the publicity, the circumstances surrounding the deaths remain a mystery.

The bodies were discovered in a pool of blood, and they were buried within 48 hours of the incident.

The case has been the subject of numerous investigations and research projects, including a comprehensive study by a team from McGill University that unearthed diaries, photos, a coroner’s report, and condolence letters sent to the Redpath family.

Despite these efforts, the case remains unsolved, and it continues to fascinate history buffs and researchers.

Various theories have been proposed over the years, but none have definitively explained what happened on that fateful day in 1901.
