Howard’s Newest Comment About Angell Job Corps and its Murders

-from Howard

Interesting that on this site there is an account of a murder committed by Angell Job Corps students and another account of an attempted murder by an employee of the center ten years later. What other Job Corps center has that kind of history? Yes, Job Corps students have murdered other people, but usually not while they are students at a center. This center sounds like a magnet for psychopaths.

Also interesting, is the fact that the center never reported the student missing, even though he was a minor at the time, until weeks later. This student was AWOL and was not designated as such until the next morning when he was listed as not being present at bed-check. It was too late by that time. However, he did not have a pass to leave center and should have been noted as off-center almost immediately because most dorms have meetings in the evening hours. Sometimes two meetings: one right before or after dinner, and one before bed-time and lights out. Attendance is taken at those times for student accountability purposes. If people are missing, then a search should have been made. His life might have been saved.

Also, the staff who should have known something was amiss, were, in my opinion, highly negligent. They sound like a group of incompetents who were not aware of this population’s penchant for this kind of trouble, and in particular, were unaware of advanced indicators that were probably “out there” regarding the murderers.

They were probably not too street smart in their questioning of these and other students – if they ever did question anybody. In a Job Corps center, staff have to keep their eyes and ears open and have relationships with students who can give them information when it is needed. Staff on this center were just covering up for themselves, by not reporting him missing and giving conflicting information to his family.

Former Angell Job Corps Student Confesses to Murder

-from The Central Oregonian

Read the article here:

“Prineville resident Troy Culver, 40, was indicted in Lincoln County Circuit Court Wednesday morning on murder and manslaughter charges stemming from a 20-year-old incident.

The indictment is the result of a reopened investigation into the disappearance of 16-year-old Puyallup, Wash. resident Walter Ackerson Jr.

In 1990, Culver was enrolled at Angell Job Corps in Yachats, Ore. Angell Job Corps is a residential education center that provides vocational training for economically-disadvantaged youth.”

After 20 years, mom now knows what happened to son

From the Associated Press:

(AP) – 2 days ago

“TACOMA, Wash. — Karen Hull has been waiting 20 years to find out what happened to her son Walter in 1990. She finally knows.”

“Walter Thomas Ackerson Jr. was born in 1973 and grew up in Eastern Washington’s tiny Kettle Falls. He was beaten to death, or close to it, 16 years later, 200 miles from home, when he was a student at a federal Job Corps center on the Oregon Coast.”

“In 1990, federal workers at the Angell Job Corps in Yachats, Ore., dismissed Ackerson as a runaway, despite rumors surrounding his disappearance. They waited weeks to tell his mother he was missing and gave her conflicting stories.”
