From the blog of Chuck Boyd, a photographer who covered the Manson trial for CBS:
"The surprising thing about the overall group shot was that the prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi (far left) came to the party and posed along with one of Manson's lawyers, a bearded Ron Hughes who later died before the trial ended.
The 3 lady reporters all came as members of "the family" and wore black t-shirts and had crosses painted on their forehead. The actual ladies who picketed outside the L.A. Hall of Justice each day had carved the image on themselves."Another awesome photo I had never seen before. How disturbing is this? Ron Hughes who was representing Leslie Van Houten poses with Bugliosi AND reporters who are dressed mocking his client?
