Sharon Tate And The Infamous Manson Murders May Not Be Charles Manson’s Only Victims, Report, Manson Behnid Many Other Unsolved Murders, Highlight Hollywood News
Heinous mastermind Charles Manson may have also masterminded more murders than he was actually tied to, according to an audiotape recently made public. Attorney Bill Boyd, who represented Manson follower Charles (Tex) Watson, said he recorded more than 20 hours worth of interviews in 1969 with his client, who claimed Manson committed other killings.
Boyd, who died in 2009, had previously spoken to an author about those recordings, MyFoxLA.com reported Monday. A tape of the interview with the author was obtained by the local Fox affiliate, although the actual recordings between Boyd and Watson have not been publicly released. “He told me about a bunch of other people Manson had killed,” Boyd said of Watson, adding that his client didn’t implicate himself in those other alleged murders.
The possibility of more slayings come as the California Board of Parole recommended that another Manson minion, Bruce Davis, should be released. Gov. Jerry Brown has up to 30 days to decide whether to hold up the parole board’s recommendation and grant the convicted killer his freedom. Davis, now 70 and a self-proclaimed born-again Christian, has served more than 40 years in the slammer for his role in the deaths of a musician and a stuntman. Born again Christian, murderer? Better leave this nutcase locked up! Even though he did not take part, however, in the infamous 1969 killing spree that included the murder of actress Sharon Tate and her unborn baby, he gleefully is a followers, and that’s dangerous for all of us.
Davis long maintained that he was a bystander in the killings of the two men, but in recent years, he has acknowledged his shared responsibility. If he is freed, Davis would become the first Manson follower to be released. He would go to transitional housing associated with religious groups in Los Angeles County.
Manson and three of his other followers, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel and Watson, remain in prison for life in the Tate killings. Their co-defendant, Susan Atkins, died of cancer behind bars in 2009. The Los Angeles Police Department is interested in obtaining Boyd’s recordings in the hopes of shedding light on other unsolved murders. But the tapes are currently tied up as part of a Texas bankruptcy case involving the deceased attorney’s law firm, according to MyFoxLA.com.
Manson, now 78, was denied parole for the 12th time a year ago, and isn’t eligible again until he’s 92 — meaning he will likely rot behind bars.
