Gordon Stewart NORTHCOTT



Sanford Clark, Gordon Northcott's nephew, who first revealed the so-called "murder farm" and accused Northcott of killing at least three boys there. He declared he was held captive at the farm and made to assist in the murders. He is Jessie Clark's brother.



Sanford Clark, 15, who asserted four boys were slain on a "murder farm" by Stewart Northcott, 24. He is shown looking over photos of missing boys. He claimed Walter Collins was a victim and picked his photo out of 30 but could not identify a boy found and returned as Walter Collins.



Deputy Sheriffs Abe Mendoza, left, and Joseph Sepulveda, right, question Sanford Clark about a grain sack found on Stewart Northcott's ranch. The brand is said to be similar to that of the sack in which a headless Mexican boy was found.



Jessie Clark, sister of "murder farm" resident Sanford Clark, went to the farm to rescue her brother. Fearing for her life, she would tiptoe in the middle of the night to Sanford's bedside, where he whispered his story of the murders of several boys, according to her sworn statement.



Jessie Clark, 19-year-old Saskatoon, Canada, girl who said, "Gordon said he burned four boys on a pyre."



Mrs. Winifred Clark, mother of Sanford and Jessie, has turned against her accused relatives, the Northcotts. Sanford was Gordon's teen-aged nephew who lived for a time at the farm. Clark said, "I hope Mother and Brother can make their peace with God."

was grilled by police in September 1928 and denied any knowledge of the crimes.
