The Myth of Helter Skelter


Thanks to a tip from "The Grump" it appears James Whitehouse took down the free read at Susan's web site "The Myth of Helter Skelter" the book Susan was writing and never finished before she died.  You can BUY it now on Amazon.

It's worth a read, but not a buy. It's the same self-serving BS, but also put a lot of truth forward as to what she believed was the motive.

Already read it. Very, very self-serving, indeed! I don't think she really believed that. Susan was involved in almost every, single murder that they ever did (and probably some we aren't even aware of). She knew the real motives, and I don't think they are the motives that she wrote about in her book. Self serving is right!

Anyone know if it's any different than what was posted on her site? Additions/deletions?

I should have it next week. I'll let you know. The only reason I think it will be more than the website is it is listed as 252 pages.

The book has large print and tons of footnotes which makes it seem longer than it is. I don't know if it's verbatum of what was on the website but it wouldn't surprise me if it was.

I read it for free on her website a year or so ago. Thank God I didn't pay money for it! A load of rubbish, her theories make no sense at all! Her story seemed to change each decade.

Remember in the 90's when she started claiming that Tex yelled at at her to "Get the fuck (sorry Patty)out of the house" when she refused to kill Sharon and that she was standing on the front lawn while Tex stabbed her?

If Sadie had lived for another ten years no doubt the story would have changed again.

Hope they learned how to use that fancy dancy spell checker thingy.

The author apparently doesn't realize that you do not footnote info that you observed or participated in (because you are the authority). I found all the footnotes to "The family" & "Helter Skelter" annoying and unnecessary.

I read the script on her site and was at least intrigued by hearing something other than the Helter Skelter non-sense. I know people believe that and that's okay. We all have our theories. I'm one of those who believes that the actors in the T/L murders know a quit different story that they cannot tell because the real story involves other types of people in higher places...just my feeling. I do have to say that this site is the best I have ever seen.

I have read a lot on the subject. It takes reading all the books, and watching dvd's to string it together. Susan's latest describes Charlie very well. He's a user of people, places and things! It was all down hill with the Crowe "incident" That's the hole thing in a nut shell. All the complicated conspiracy's is just B.S. Helter Skelter non-sense, Charlie laughing all the way to his cell. Reading between the lines with "I'm innocent" From Susan, it was that stupid simple / stupid dumb. Setting those people up with random killing. The people running with Charlie were just plan stupid morons.

I find it interesting that so called hippies would paint their bus black.....something is very wrong with this.
