Tapes of 1969 conversations between Charles Manson's right hand man Tex Watson and his attorney may give new insight into the Manson family murders. The recordings turned up as part of the late attorney's law firm's bankruptcy proceedings. Watson remains in prison, convicted of Tate/Labianca murders, and his current attorney is fighting against the tapes' release citing, duh, attorney client privilege. From the L.A. Times:
According to LAPD detectives, the judge granted the motion (to provide the LAPD with access to the tapes) but left open the possibility of a further challenge to their release within 14 days by Watson’s current attorney, who has objected to the disclosure.
Cmdr. Andrew Smith said the LAPD hopes that when those 14 days are up, detectives can begin scouring the tapes for any evidence of unsolved murders tied to the Manson family. Smith said there were "no specific unsolved homicides" that have led L.A. detectives to seek the tapes and that the recordings are being sought because the LAPD learned of their availability.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]

Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan. Why doesn’t anyone do it then? Because building that semi-viable […]
