Watson asked that the investigators be allowed to listen to the tapes, but not be given the cassette recordings.
Watson said there is no evidence of any unsolved murders on the tapes as the detectives said in their motion to get the tapes.
In a motion to the court, Watson said if the LAPD took possession
of the tapes they could end up being released to the media which could
cause further pain for the families of the Manson victims.
