Why can I find nothing on the web about Ralph "Papa" Thorson getting
killed by a car bomb? (Supposedly happened in the '80's or early '90's)
Steve McQueen played him in "The Hunted". You'd think there'd be a news
story or article about it somewhere!
There's plenty of stuff out there; search on "QD Reese."
Thorson was killed by a car bomb in 1994 planted by someone he was
pursuing, a fugitive named Q.D. Reese, who then tried to kill Thorson's
wife Dottie and daughter Brandi. Dottie and Brandi became bounty
hunters themselves after Thorson died. Reese kept pursuing the Thorson
women and wound up being shot by Brandi. (Reese survived and got life
in prison.) There's a flick called "The Huntress," taken from Dottie's
ghosted book about all this, with Annette O'Toole as Dottie.
