WILSON, TURMAN AND UTAH 1950'S

Posted: 1098150974000
Classification: Query
Surnames: WILSON
The 9th of August 1950, Turman and Utah Wilson were sentenced to die for the murder of Jo Ann Dewey. It wasn't until 03 Jan 1953 that they were excecuted. My grandfather was a patrolman with the Oregon Highway Patrol (Now the Oregon State Police) when the Wilson's escaped in the 1940's - he was one of the police officers that caught Turman Wilson. He was then with the Clark County Sheriff's department in the 1950's when they were in trouble again. He saved a few newspaper articles from that time in a scrap book, and right now that is all I have, as my grandfather passed away a few years ago.

My mother and I have begun researching this case, and are interested in any information any one may have - we are even interested in accountings, if someone recalls that event. We are collecting articles from the Columbian microfilm, and some other newspapers, and are looking into getting a hold of other research material. Ideas, information, suggestions would be great.

Thanks!
