Titanic’s great mystery solved, Canadian ‘heiress’ exposed as fraud

Titanic’s last great mystery solved, Canadian ‘heiress’ Helen Kramer is exposed as a fraud having claimed to be child survivor of 1912 Titanic disaster.

One of the last great mysteries of the Titanic has been solved – and the woman who claimed she was a child survivor has been exposed as a fraud by DNA tests.
Two-year-old Loraine Allison was first reported to have died along with her parents when the tragic liner sank, but no body was ever recovered. In the years that followed the 1912 disaster a woman by the name of Helen Kramer came forward and claimed that she was in fact Loraine Allison.
Kramer launched a legal bid to be considered part of the wealthy Allison family and entitled to part of their fortune.
