Massacred for Gold, the first authoritative account of the unsolved crime, unearths the evidence that points to an improbable gang of rustlers and schoolboys, one only fifteen, as the killers. The crime was discovered weeks after it happened, but no charges were brought for nearly a year, when gang member Frank Vaughan, son of a well-known settler family, confessed and turned states evidence. Six men and boys, all from northeastern Oregons remote Wallowa county, were chargedbut three fled, and the others were found innocent by a jury that a witness admitted had little interest in convicting anyone.
