Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me!
I have missed all of your comments and thoughts the past two months. I know it’s a busy and conflicted time for many of you, so no judgements but I welcome your comments on my stories here at Medium and want to invite you back.
I’ve been busy, working on the Manson Family docuseries at YouTube. It’s a strenuous and time-intensive effort but I’m happy to see that this free 40+ part docuseries has been so well-received. …
Visit the sites made famous by Charles Manson and his Family of cult killers
I recently had the opportunity to spend a long weekend in the Los Angeles area. I was there for both business and pleasure and figured I’d finally go visit all those Manson Family related sites in the area.
I started at Spahn Ranch, the 500 acre horse ranch and Western Movie film backlot in Chatsworth. At my YouTube channel, a man reached out to me and said he lived in the area and would be happy to give me a personal tour. …
The Story of the Oakland County Child Killer, Part 2
Four children went missing from the suburbs around Detroit during an eleven-month period of time between February 1976 and March 1977. Days or weeks after their disappearances, the children’s bodies were found — each placed outside in the snow, almost in defiance of the public and law enforcement’s efforts to find them.
The killer has never been identified.
There have been countless articles, news reports, podcasts and documentaries, attempting to bring this case into the light. This is the second in a series of articles I am writing at Medium…
aka You Can’t Get Away With Anything Anymore!
There have been a number of notable Eras and Ages in human history:
The Paleolithic Age is the earliest period of the Stone Age, the first phase of the Pre-History Era.
The Bronze Age, which lasted from 3300–1200 BC.
The Early Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages, which followed the fall of the Holy Roman Empire in the 5th Century. There have been many eras and ages based on rulerships — various dynasties of the Far East and empires of the West. …
Many of Charlie’s women and girls suffered with anorexia and bulimia
In 1968, Charles Manson was living in Topanga Beach, California near Los Angeles with six women and girls: Mary Brunner, Lynette Fromme, Patricia Krenwinkel, Susan Atkins, Ella Jo Bailey and 14-year old Dianne Lake who was emancipated from her parents who were living in a nearby commune.
The group — not yet known as the Manson Family — were in L.A. so that Charlie could pursue a music career. They were living in a ramshackle Dutch Colonial on the brink of being condemned by the city after floods had…
and one of the killers is now free!
Do you remember the Satanic Panic of the 1980s and ‘90s? It led law enforcement on a wild goose hunt across the country, trying to rout out criminal elements of alleged devil worship and human sacrifice that they believed was behind many horrific murders of that era, including three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas in summer of 1993.
Arkansas convicted three men of those murders, men who are now free after later evidence seemed to exonerate them (although their sentences have not been overturned — they simply were allowed to leave prison…
Sister versus Sister Across Eight States
You probably thought this was another of my true crime stories, huh? Well, this certainly could have become a crime but thankfully, cooler heads prevailed. Instead, this is a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there — I’ll tell you how I became…
Wait. I didn’t become the Prince of Bel Air. But I did take charge of my life at a great cost and that’s the story I wanted to share.
As a true crime writer who specializes…
The alleged children of the cult leader keep showing up, four years after his death
Oh Charlie, Charlie, Charlie — ye of such potent sperm, such virile loins, such a vanguard legacy — everybody wants to call you ‘Daddy!’ But is it true? Did you really father all these children — these lost souls, these glaze-eyed men and women longing to attach themselves to your fame, your infamy, and your name?
What say ye, Charles Manson?
Charles Milles Manson was born November 12, 1934 in Cincinnati, Ohio to a 15-year…
and other comments from the peanut gallery
As we reach the tail end of the sunny month of June, I’m once again sharing some of your top comments from the past month to my articles here at Medium. This author always welcomes your thoughts and ideas, and constructive criticism about my writing. This month, however, brought out some rather unconstructive and belittling comments but I’m going to share them anyway!
