Wineville Chicken Coop Murders

This is the actual house where the serial killer/pedifile Gordon Stewart Northcott lived at in 1928. Brought to light by the true movie, The Changeling, starring Angelina Jolie.

The house is located in Mira Loma California, formerly known as Wineville California.... they changed the name in 1930 because of all the negative publicity.

I live less than 5 miles from this house and after watching the movie last night was driven to go see where the horrific torture and murders of all those young boys took place. I left there shaking and sick to my stomach.

When the movie was first released in Oct. 2008, the house was occupied. Heres the ABC news Video Interview with the occupant.

Since then the people have moved and the house is now up for sale. When I was there, there were also 2 other people who came to take pictures. So I'm not sure if the occupants moved after learning about the grizzly murders that took place there, or because of all the attention it is attracting.

The murders actually took place in the chicken coop behind the house which has since been torn down.


If you havent seen the movie, I highly recommend it. Details of the case can also be read here at wikipedia wineville murders


Sorry for such a morbid post, but this movie really affected me.... maybe because it was so close to home.

There are "No trespassing" signs on the window now. In my opinion, this house should be torn down!
