Ep. 170 – The Murder of William Arnold Newton Pt. VIII – Case Closed: Interview with Citizen Detective Clark Williams

March 11, 2023

Two years ago, Christopher and Eric used this podcast to bring much needed attention to the brutal homicide of a young gay man named William Arnold Newton, whose severed head and feet were found in a Hollywood dumpster in 1990. Meanwhile, empty nester Clark Williams was trying to find a new direction in life after his daughter had departed for college. Then he encountered an article about a shocking tip generated by Christopher and Eric’s efforts to shine light on the long unsolved, brutal murder of a young gay man named Billy Newton. Clark and Billy were from the same hometown, with too much in common to be ignored. And so an obsession with Billy Newton’s story was born — and not two years later, Billy’s murder was solved! #JusticeForBilly month continues with this jaw dropping look into the exhaustive, methodical and impeccable research methods Clark Williams used to follow a trail of clues from a Hollywood dumpster to the Oklahoma prison cell of Billy’s killer. It’s an amazing and inspiring story of how a smart, and dedicated private citizen found justice for a heinous crime in danger of being forgotten.
