On December 4, 1969, prosecuting attorney Vincent Bugliosi interviewed Susan Atkins and was convinced he had a case to connect Manson and his followers to all the murders. And though Manson wasn’t present at any of the actual killings, Bugliosi knew that somehow Charlie had manipulated it all.

In November 1967 Charlie’s decides to move his growing family of followers to Los Angeles, so he can become more famous than the Beatles. However, his first audition doesn’t go well. Not to worry. He has a direct line to the music industry. Two of his girls have just met drummer Dennis Wilson. A Beach Boy.
