Gladys Broadhurst brought to Vale for trial
The Dec. 19, 1946 Ontario Argus reported that Gladys Broadhurst of Caldwell had been indicted for murder and brought to Vale for trial, beginning the saga of one of the most infamous murder trials in Eastern Oregon history. The elements included a local cowboy who carried out the murder at the behest of his noir-type lover and well-to-do victim, a former chiropractor with a ranch in the expansive south county country surrounding Jordan Valley.
