McCourt Gets Frightened After The Robbery & A Mysterious Prop From The Movie


Whether it was just nervous paranoia setting in after realizing what they had done and to whom, or whether it was the cocaine induced jitters, Tracy McCourt was scared when the Gang arrived back at the Wonderland house. Nobody else was though.

“When we got back to the house, I just started getting very nervous. I looked out the balcony and saw a car that looked like the Lincoln Continental that had been parked at Eddie Nash’s house. I told everybody about it, but they were so high and screwed up on drugs that they paid no attention. That’s when I got really nervous and decided to leave on my own.”  –Tracy McCourt

Tracy was from Kentucky, but at the time of the robbery he had an apartment in North Hollywood. This apartment building is an earlier address I found for him. I have no other information about what he did during his stint in L.A., or if he was just friends with Ron and Billy. Please post here if you know anything about Tracy, for he is the most mysterious yet surprisingly fascinating player in the Wonderland saga. RIP bro.

Also, this strange movie prop image is flashed for a brief second in the film. It shows Billy Deverell’s rap sheet and a mug shot. Of course that is the actor Tim Blake Nelson in the photo. Billy was about 5’6″ in real life, not 5’11”, and he was clean shaven when he died, so was Ronnie.

Next, check out those addresses at the bottom:

Billy's autopsy report stated that he had many tattoos.

I am not sure if a filmmaker would use a random address like that in a movie. Someone could sue, and they usually make up a fake one, like they did with the Wonderland house (3678 not 8763). But, upon further inspection the second address is a parking lot, but the first address on 3rd Street takes you to this little house in Central L.A. Was this a slip-up and included from the official police documents, and did Billy live here once in real life?

Did Deverell live here at one time before moving in with Joy? It is very close to the  part of L.A. where he was raised.
