Wineville Chicken Coop Murders

I have to admit that I do not have the same fascination that some do concerning the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. I do have a working knowledge of this infamous case because it is part of Jurupa Valley history and everyone asks about it. For those of you interested, a book on the murders is available that takes a unique angle on the case. Titled "The Road Out of Hell," it is the story of not only Gordon Northcott and his grisly crimes, but of his nephew Sanford Clark, how he was brutalized by his uncle, forced to participated in the murders while just a teen, and ultimately how he overcame his horrible experiences to become a loving husband and father.  

I have to admit that I have not read this book yet but I thought it was worth mentioning to you Jurupa history buffs out there. It has received an average of 4 1/2 out of 5 stars from over 30 Amazon reviewers. It is available in both hardback and Kindle versions. If you think you might be interested please check out the Amazon reviews for yourself to see if it looks like something you would like to read. Let me know if you have read this book and what you think of it!
