Mother Mary's First Communion

Patty is not sure what she did to deserve such awesome treatment from the good folks at HS Forum, but they are the gift that keeps on giving! Perhaps, because they are solely interested in the victims and not the perpetrators, they do not feel their forum is the right place to post the little gems that they come across from time to time. In any case, Patty is grateful and pleased to be able to share with you yet another awesome Mary pic: voila!

She never changed. I could see that photo mixed in with 100 others and I'd be able to pick her out.

This would have been 1956. CM was in Terminal Island at the time.

Mary certainly has some distinctive facial characteristics that make her stand out in a crowd. I just can’t quite put my finger on what it is though.

Perhaps This

Little Closer

Closer Still

I guess some things are meant to stay unsolved.

Awwww c'mon Farf, she's cute!

What a "squish" face! She has always had that "hillbilly" chin!

Is she doing hand signals???

That's a great pic thanx to whoever is responsible.

I consider Mary Brunner to be about as lucky as one person can possibly get by making it through her Manson years as unscathed as she did.

Sunset you make a good point but she did go through some shit like the Hinman murder that she beat the rap on some how.....and let's not forget the Hawthorne shoot out. Does anyone know how much time she served for that one?

"Sunset you make a good point but she did go through some shit like the Hinman murder that she beat the rap on some how.....and let's not forget the Hawthorne shoot out. Does anyone know how much time she served for that one?"

Exactly what her involvement was in the Hinman murder, I'm not sure, but I've read that she held a pillow over Hinman's face while he was stabbed to death by Beausoleil. I've also read that she was in the kitchen as he was killed. She "grudgingly" testified against Beausoleil and got off on that charge. She could have gotten the death penalty for it, (I'm sure some would argue that she should have).

So far as the Hawthorne St. shootout is concerned, Wikipedia says "Brunner served just over six years for her participation in the Hawthorne shootout and was released in 1977.[13]
Later life

After her release from prison in 1977, Brunner disassociated herself from the Manson Family and regained custody of her son. She subsequently changed her name and currently lives in ------.[13][18]"

Is there anything written about Mary's years in prison? Did she "disassociate" herself from the Family while in prison or not until she got out? Did she find religion like several of the others?
And sorry, but making fun of her looks is pretty lame. So she wasn't/isn't a cover girl. Who cares. I actually found her very appealing in that video where she is being interviewed walking away from the Bobby B trial.

Leary, check out the "Escape" chapter in Atkins' "Child of Satan" book.

AustinAnn74 said...

She admitted saying "WOW, they really did it, FAR OUT" when she heard the news about the Tate murders. She also took turns with Susan Atkins "smothering" Gary Hinman after Bobby stabbed him. They were walking out of his house, and heard him making "gurgling" noises, so they wanted to make sure he was dead. Who knows what her involvement was in other murders. These people were, and are MURDERERS! She should of gone to prison for the rest of her life, along with her "family." Sick!

Leary7 previously and less piously opined regarding Ruth Ann’s prepubescent photograph:

“and to realize Charlie was tappin her…..”

Wow, I and all of polite society would have used a different verb like molest or abuse rather than “tappin” in association with a child. That vernacular used on a little girl simply oozes, closet pedophile out of every syllable. Even going so far as to drop the ‘g’, in order to give that extra ghetto feel, which in turn exacerbates the overall sleazy texture of the missive is disturbing.

Yet someone finds a woman leaving a trial about the systemic, long term torture and murder of a human appealing? Astonishing.

All points well taken boys, but please no brawling, or you get a wedgie.
