Manson Prosecutor Bugliosi Dies at 80

Vincent Bugliosi, the man who was catapulted into fame by his prosecution of Charles Manson, has died at age 80. After the trial, Bugliosi wrote Helter Skelter, a book about Manson and his followers. He cast Mason’s female followers as “zombies,” with the cult leader being “a dictatorial maharajah of a tribe of bootlicking slaves.” He went on to write a dozen other books, including 2,000 pages on the Kennedy assassination.
