The Hollow Creek Killer's M.O. of using a child to lure the children, killing them and burying them in lime is a reference to the Wineville Chicken coop murders in Mira Loma (then called Wineville), CA. In 1926 Gordon Stewert Northcott kidnapped and molested several young boys, eventually killing 4, burying three of the bodies on his Wineville ranch and leaving the fourth headless corpse by the side of a road. He was subsequently tried and hanged at San Quentin State Prison in 1930. See more
