CASE: CHARLES MANSON DATE: 1970-71 Precious Coons Coel
INVESTIGATION AND ARREST • The departments working on the two investigations were the Los Angeles Sheriffs Office and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). This would later play a very important role in the investigation in the year and a half due to mass miscommunication between the two departments concerning the two crime scenes.
INITIAL APPEARANCE • an American criminal who spearheaded a murderous campaign with his followers, the Manson Family cult, that would make him one of the most infamous figures in criminal history.
PRELIMINARY HEARING OR GRAND JURY • Police prepared a grand jury case against at least seven persons today in the Sharon Tate slaying, linked by an attorney to a cult of hippies who knew their leader as “God” and “Satan.” • A preliminary hearing was also scheduled in Independence, near Death Valley, for Charles Miles Manson, 34, described as leader of the occult group. He is charged with possession of stolen property.
