Coming this weekend in the Whittier Daily News and SGV Tribune, this from a budget note:
There’s a reason why a true crime writer was poring through old newspapers and photos at the Whittier Museum recently. Anthony Flacco is writing a book about Sanford Clark, the nephew and main witness against Gordon Stewart Northcott who kidnapped, molested and killed boys in his Wineville chicken ranch in the ’20s. Clark was sentenced to five years at the Whittier State School for Boys which then became the Fred C. Nelles Youth Correctional Facility. Clark later went back to Canada where he became a postal worker and adopted two boys.
One of the homicides occurred in La Puente. Two boys were kidnapped from Pomona as part of the crime also.
