john Tornow: No Justice, no Trial
From the opening moments of the short documentary "John Tornow: No Justice, No Trial," we are made aware of the strong and conflicting opinions of Matlock citizens as they consider the tragic actions and motives surrounding their most famous resident, reclusive outlaw John Tornow, who was accused of killing six men before dying violently in a final shootout on April 16, 1913.
The passionate beliefs still held by many in Mason and Grays Harbor counties are as amazing to study as are the facts (and legends) surrounding the last two years of John Tornow's life––most of which was spent in isolation deep in the rainforest of the rugged Wynoochee River valley, where he eluded the largest manhunt of the western United States since the Wild West days of the previous century.
The full-length movie version will be available soon. You may write me with your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
