    Dan -- No, GSN claimed that his father sodomized him when he was little, but that wasn't true, and his dad forgave him for slandering him. His mom said that she wasn't his mom--she was the product of an incestuous union between his dad, Cyrus, and his older sister, Winnifred, which also wasn't true!

    Anything to help Stewart, even if he did molest and kill children.

    I've found over 6,000 pages of primary source materials--the 5,000+ pages of trial transcript, files on Northcott, his mom, and his uncle from San Quentin, hundreds of newspaper articles, transcripts from Canada, and other legal documents and records.

    And photographs--over 200 of them, most never published before, so far as I know.

    Thank you so much for your interest.

      Murderer wanted his name 'known all over the world'
      Fame-seeking Gordon Stewart Northcott
      was hanged for child sex killings
      and a new film may just give him that infamy, writes Randy Boswell

      This article has spoilers for plot points and includes an interview with James Jeffrey Paul. I've included only the first four paragraphs for reference.

      Nearly 80 years after a young, publicity-craving Canadian man was hanged in California for a series of child sex killings -- horrific crimes dubbed the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders during his sensational 1929 trial -- Gordon Stewart Northcott's twisted dream of global fame is finally set to be fulfilled

      Changeling, a hotly anticipated historical drama directed by Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood and chosen to premiere this month at the Cannes Festival, revolves around efforts of a desperate mother, played by Angelina Jolie, to determine whether her 10-year-old son was one of the victims.

      Born in Saskatchewan in 1906 and raised in B.C., Mr. Northcott moved to the Los Angeles area with his parents in the 1920s, but fled to Canada after body parts of four boys were discovered at the family's Wineville, California, chicken farm in 1928.

      The 21-year-old fugitive was apprehended near Vernon, B.C., and Mr. Northcott's extradition and interrogation aboard a Los Angeles-bound train, his mother's admitted involvement in the slayings, his high-profile trial -- at which he unsuccessfully defended himself -- and his execution at San Quentin Prison in October 1930 were all widely covered by North American newspapers.
