I am looking for victims of sexual molestation perpetrated by William Wayne Macumber. PLEASE...ONLY SERIOUS REPLIES!

In the 1960's William Macumber owned a "Flying A" gas station on the corner of 12th St. and Missouri Ave. He was a member of the sheriff's search and rescue team. He was involved in stock care racing. He started molesting me at the age of 12. I have a feeling I wasn't the only one. Please...if you were a victim..respond! Bill has been in prison for the past 35 years for a double murder. He was convicted by two juries in two trials. Recently his case came before the Arizona Clemency Board. It was recommended by the board to release Bill. In her wisdom, Governor Jan Brewer denied clemency. Now, there is a national campaign to free Macumber. Macumber should NEVER see the light of day! If you have any information or know someone that came in contact with Macumber in the early to late 60's, please respond and help keep a predator in prison and other young people safe.

Thank you

After 40 years you now cme forward about it. You have no proof. But the clemency board has plenty of proof of Macumber's innocents an proof that someone set him up. This sound like a bunch of garbage.

How do you know it wasn't reported? What makes you think I don't have proof? Interesting post...you ASSume much...and KNOW nothing. Macumber is guilty as hell...TWO JURIES...24 people, came to that VERY conclusion...so did Governor Jan Brewer. And you are exactly, WHO?

Thanks for the post...I'll pass it along.

Lancer is right. I find it funny that you are just now coming forward after 40+ years. There is plenty of proof showing that Macumber is innocent. I am a firm believer that true justice always come through and when all is said and done, Macumber will be a free man as he should be. And to be fair, there is A LOT that either jury was not allowed to hear. If ALL the evidence had been presented, Macumber would not be sitting in jail right now. And another thing, if you reported something, then why was it not brought up when he faced the clemency board or at any other time? Interesting....

Oh im here to tell you all this was talked about and one hell of a long time before all you armcahir quartebacks started chiming in. I am on of the other son's of William Macumber so lets talk about this man for a second.
First my mother was not able to testify at the first trial and at the second only to what she had seen so YES there was alot the jury did not hear.
Ask him about sleeping with our 17 year old babysitter in front of us during our vacation to Oregon.
Ask him about an ammo box me and my brothers found in the storage shed outside our house in pheonix that contained multiple adult toys and kiddy porn.
Ask him why if he cared for his kids so damn much he and his father took everything of value we owned and left us with nothing. This included a van and a gun collection.
Ask him about firing shots into our house with us kids inside and then failing a ploygraph afterwards about it.
You all have no damn clue what your dealing with here. This man is a manipulator and youve been simple enough to fall for it. My family went thru hell with this not just once but twice with the second trial. and now 35 plus years later with all of this crap.
As for why this was not brought up at the clemency hearing well if we would have been notified of it we would have been there.
So all you people who think you know him? You were not there, We were, and there is alot to this story that has not been told like an entire series of events HE created leading up to his arrest.
The fact he FAILED the polygraph when asked about if he fired the shots thru our house.
The fact he tried to blame that incedent on my mother.
The fact there was not custody battle in fact they were doing a "do it yourself divorce" which has to be UNCONTESTED.
The fact that my mother passed MULTIPLE polygraph tests on this subject and not just from phoenix but from all over whenever she applied for a job as a sheriffs officer or corrections officer.
The fact that the EVIDENCE was never contested at the trials by his attorney. Now why would this be? If hes so damn sure it was planted then where is the proof? Show it to me and i will believe it. No more inuendo no more accusations I WANT PROOF.
IS there more? Of course there is but we had hoped that we would not have to deal with it all over again so what would have been the point of bringing all of this to light. Im 45 now and will not stand to see my mothers name run thru the mud by a bunch of people who dont want to print the truth. Why not the truth? Its not juicy enough. It doesnt sell papers.
The simple fact is this. He murdered 2 kids and then left his own kids with nothing and has spent his entire life lying about it. Now he is the big man again. Hes getting the attention he so craves. and you are all doing nothing but help feed a monster. I hope you can sleep at night.

Curious, did Macumber ever live in CA during the late 1960's, or was he strictly in AZ?

If McCumbers been in prison for 35 years hasn't he paid his debt to society?

To my way of thinking the pursuit of Justice must end somewhere, it must stop, and the prisoner must be released. For 35 years this guys been behind bars, all his good years have long gone, his lifes ruined and its time society walked away and say 'enoughs enough'. Releasing him might be a mistake, he's not exactly going to be an ideal citizen, but thats not our concern, our concern is too be reasoable, to be compassionate, and to let him out. THE JAIL SENTENCE IS OVER, FINISHED, COMPLETED AND HE NEEDS TO BE RELEASED. I said released, not forgiven.

The murdering Son-of-a-bitch should never see the light of day again. I'm intimatly familiar with the Joyce Ann Sterrenburg and Timothy James McKillop mmurder case of May 23rd, 1962. The two yound people were parked in the desert half mile north of Bell Rd. and 300 feet East of Scottsdale Rd.in her 1959 Chevy Impala when this animal shot both of them twice in the head. It took 12 years to bring this piece of shit to justice. Two juries convicted him in two trils. The evidence is overwhelming. His Palm print on the door sill of the car, prints on the four empty .45 cal. shell casings and one live round found at the scene. The evidence of any conspiracy is non-existant. When the two murdered 20 year olds can come back to life and resume their lives, Macumber can be released from prison. In the mean time, May he rot in hell.

Sure, we'll release this man. He can be released into your custody and your household. I hope you have young children who can help take care of him while your not home.

Where in the hell do you bleeding hearts come from? You obviously have never had a family member of yours murdered in cold blood, kidnaped, raped, etc. Contrary to you bleeding heart liberals, pure evil does exist in this world.

As long as those two young people who were murdered in the desert on May 23rd 1962 remain dead, robbed of thier young lives, this animal should never see the light of day again. If Joyce and Timothy come back to life, then we'll give murdering Macumber back his life. As long as they're dead, so should he be.

If I ever commit a crime, I want you on my jury.

I am one of the detectives who investigated the case. While I can't speak to the issue of molestation I can assure you that this man is guilty of these murders and in my opinion several more.

I am one of the sons of William Macumber and attended his Pardon hearing today via telephone. This time the Arizona justice project did not have this all to themselves so they say whatever the wanted. For the first time in 37 years we had our chance to tell our side and defend my mother against these baseless accusations from Hammond and crew and keep a VERY guilty man in Jail. My father is guilty and his lies are now at an end as he will now spend the rest of his life in prison as he should. For the first time in my life I will be able to go to sleep knowing he will stay where he belongs and my mother and family name has been vindicated. Better go find another way to get your name in the paper Mr Hammond.

It's so easy to keep your head in the sand and not even look at the evidence. Fact- Our mother lied in court about her affairs. This is backed by three different people, two of which she was having the affairs with. Fact- She was under invesigatetion at Maricopia county. This is also backed by at least two differnt people who worked at MCSO at the time. Fact- She had access to the case file and evidence. Several former MCSO employees have stated that anyone could have gotten in to them. And let's address something you said. Yes, I did not make it throught Air Force boot camp. So what? A lot of people don't. When I came home, yes mom let me stay, but she sure as hell did NOT pay for my college. I have the bills to show for it. In fact I remember giving her money out of that to help pay bills. You can think whatever youwant of me. I ceased to care about that a long time ago. I am not "trying to get back at mom" as you have said before. What I said at the hearing is true. Your my mother and my brothers and I love and miss you. I am doing what I belive is right. Based on the evidence that has been shown to me and the court records. I can guarentee you that I have spent a lot more time going through it han you. I'm sorry it came to this.

I was one of the Phoenix Police Detectives who conducted the initial investigation of Mr. Macumber. While some of what you write about Mrs. Macumber might well be true the bit about the evidence isn't. When I and another PPD detective looked at the eveidence package in the MCSO Property room it was under seal, As I recall the only way that anyone was able to view the evidence was by a letter signed by the Sheriff and over all those years there had been only 5 such letters issued.

However we did find several (the number 7 comes to mind) attempts by William Wayne Macumber to gain access to the evidence over a period spaning several years.

There are other nuggetts of his guilt burried here and there as well.

Hmm, wasn't your mom the one involved in sex affairs?! If your dad did this, why wasn't the girl raped? Ever think of that?! My father was wrongly imprisoned in Maricopa county as well, infact the victim later came forth and admitted that the damn cop who framed my father was in fact the guilty one! Have an open mind! Your mother had all those years to manipulate your innocent little minds, no one says you have to disown her, but maybe just maybe you should dig a little deeper and recall what are your memories vs what was told to you, a child's mind is the easiest to trick!

The question of guilt of the double murders is setteled. Two juries found him guilty.

If Macumber was framed it was done over a period of 20 years by multiples of people in mulitiples of locations and jurisdictions.

It seems to me that the State of Arizona is owed his full sentence. Gov. Brewer (Whith whom I don't always agree has it right in this instance). Keep him under lock and key.
