Bloody Murders Rekindle Charles Manson Horror
This is an AP article from July 2, 1981. Not much new info here except for the sensationalized Manson headline. For a brief moment, the media could not help but speculate that they had a random act of violence on their hands. I don’t believe that the cops ever thought it was true.
I have posted articles before about the man taken from the scene for questioning. He was in the house, and seemed to have toured each room. He was likely a customer or a dealer stopping by to score. I wonder who the hell it was? Gopher or Cherokee? Despite the promise to move away, and to keep a low profile, Ronnie had made some phone calls after the robbery announcing that they had stuff to sell. That helps explain most of the foot traffic at Wonderland on July 1st.
