Millikan Professor's Murderous Past Revealed

A long-time professor at Millikin University in Decatur has been revealed to be the same person who, as a teenager, shot his parents and sister to death in the family’s Texas home.


James St. James has been a psychology professor at Millikin since 1986… but in 1967, he was Jim Wolcott, a 15-year-old who was sentenced to a state mental hospital for the murders of his family.


He was released six years later, changed his name and started his career in academia.


St. James has been the head of the school’s psychology department, but Millikin won’t comment on his current employment status, or on whether the school had been aware of his past before it was disclosed in a recent newspaper investigation.
