Charles Manson: Hippie leader of the "Family," members of which committed the brutal Tate-La Bianca killings in 1969. Manson, who declared himself a savior, had a strange hypnotic power over his followers, younf social dropouts he called disciples. Convinced that Russian nuclear missles would fall on America, Manson dreamed of establishing a fallout-free hideout in the Mojave desert. He ordered his disciples to arm themselves with knives and guns in readiness for doomsday, which he dubbed Helter Skelter. Manson envied the rich and successful and made up a list of enemies ("pigs") who would perish anyway when Helter Skelter was in full swing. In addition to the Tate slayings, Manson ordered the killings of Leo and Rosemary La Bianca for the purpose of further terrorizing the "pigs." The exact number of the Family's victims is uncertain, but may be as high as 35.
